Good + Mustache = Goodstache, a TV Drinking Game

Goodstache may very well be the first ever drinking game for charity, although there isn’t a ton of peer-reviewed research on the topic. The rules of the game are easy: donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, print out a mustache certificate of your liking (i.e. Burt Reynolds, Ron Swanson, Salvador Dali), place that mustache anywhere on your television screen, and whenever the mustache lines up with a person’s face, take a drink. If you watch a Mad Men marathon, it sounds like a great way to connect with the characters and destroy your liver, all for a good cause.

The idea comes from SF creatives Nate Gagnon, and Stephen Hadinger, freelance copywriter and AKQA creative technologist, respectively, and the website uses a sleek design that would make the Most Interesting Man in the World proud. You can just donate to the cause without drinking, which is still recommended, or you can also just play the game to drink without donating, not recommended. Either way, check out the site and have a Happy Movember.

There’s Now a ‘Manly’ Way to Deal With Your Suicidal Thoughts

Men, let’s face it: All the chest hair in the world isn’t a deterrent for those of us who suffer from chronic depression.

So, in a new campaign and PSA from Denver-based agency Cactus in partnership with the Carson J. Spencer Foundation and the Office of Suicide Prevention, Colo. Dept. of Public Health and Environment, a Ron Burgundy/Ron Swanson hybrid named “Dr. Rich Mahogany” (after a line from Anchorman) is here to assure us that seeking therapy won’t harm your masculinity. In fact, a visit to ManTherapy.org will prove to those of us that carve our own houses out of a single tree that there’s a manly way to deal with suicide prevention.

Included in the campaign are a variety of outdoor and print ads that give manly definitions for every day occurrences. So, next time you deal with depression, try pooping for a while. If it doesn’t help, visit the campaign’s website to learn more and get a high-level diagnosis from Dr. Mahogany himself. View more of the ads after the jump.
