Anti-drunk driving campaigns are as common as cheap beer these days, but this one might be the most… interesting one yet.

Out in Michigan, the state is distributing “Interactive Urinal Communicators” to bars and restaurants hoping that they’ll pay a friendly reminder to not drink and drive. 400 cakes will be distributed to 200 businesses before the July 4 holiday and the message is straight to the point: Call a sober friend or a cab if you’ve had too much to drink. It also reminds you to wash your hands.

The cakes are activated by motion rather than moisture, and is undoubtedly an interesting way for the state government to remind men not to drink and drive. They run at around $21 a pop, but the federal traffic safety funds is picking up the tab.

Why do we feel like most guys will just laugh at the fact that the urinal is talking to them while they’re intoxicated? Watch the video and you’ll see.
