Early 70's Anti-Heroin PSA - Monkey On Their Backs

This is a rare anti-heroin PSA from the early 1970s. Because of it's age and it's rarity, the PSA is in very poor quality.

The PSA begins with a rather strange toy monkey banging cymbals, with a girl in the background talking about people with heroin saying they have a "monkey on their backs". Then, out of nowhere, a blood-curdling scream plays and a creepy monkey image jumpscares any poor viewer. A message also appears at the bottom of the screen.
