The World's Biggest Asshole

Young men aren’t afraid to die. Public service messages that use the usual scare tactics, just don't pack the punch to inspire action. So how does Donate Life, the world’s largest organ and tissue donation registry, get these guys to sign up and become organ donors?
The World’s Biggest Asshole is a two-minute film introducing Coleman Sweeney, played by Thomas Jane and narrated by Will Arnett. Coleman is seen throwing bottles of piss from trucks, stealing panties from the laundromat and showing zero respect for anyone. But when Coleman dies, he goes from asshole to hero; it turns out that Coleman was an organ donor.
