Watch New Sausage Party PSA: Talking Animated Hot Dog Claims, ‘Grills Kills’

Just before Independence Day — and America’s favorite gluttonous extravaganza, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – Seth Rogen’s R-rated animated feature Sausage Party release a PSA about BBQ. Over dramatic music and images of cute anthropomorphic tubes of meat cowering in terror, Rogen, as his sausage character Frank, narrates the ways in which food might be murdered: “Fried, boiled, eyes gouged and head torn in half.” As only you can prevent forest fires, it’s also up to you to destroy your barbecue, preferably by cartoon missile, because “grills kills.”

The movie, which Rogen co-created with his long-time collaborator Evan Goldberg (This is the End, Pineapple Express), features the comedic talents of Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd and others. Sausage Party fires up theaters August 12.
