As electronic dance music and casual Ecstasy use both gain popularity, some decision makers in the EDM scene are taking steps to decrease the connection between the two. Ticket holders for New York City festival Electric Zoo will have to watch a two minute PSA about the drug Molly before attending the three-day concert.

The PSA was written and directed by “Dexter” creator James Manos Jr. with help from his 19-year-old daughter, Ellie, the Huffington Post reports. Like an episode of “Dexter” the short video gets out of hand quickly. You can watch it below.

Spreading awareness about the risks associated with Molly should have a familiar ring to students of the nation’s top ranked party school. Last year at Electric Zoo, two concert goers died Molly-related deaths, including Syracuse University class of 2012 alumnus Jeffrey Russ, the Daily Orange reported. Electric Zoo sent its “deepest condolences” to the families affected and cancelled the final day of the 2013 festival.

This year’s festival is Labor Day Weekend, going from August 29 to August 31. Headliners include past Syracuse University acts like Kaskade, Nicky Romero, and Zedd.
