Just say no to Tech

I stumbled across this very creative tech monster and had to share. He apparently was created for an ad campaign in Alberta, Canada, that ran last year trying to scare kids off of too much computer time, and too much junk food (check out the junk food monster), and basically just get kids moving (which I fully agree with; the website also has TV ads and the site design itself is pretty cool). 

I think the creatures sort of have a Muppet-y look to them. I don’t know if creating monsters is going to keep kids off the computer, but it’s still a cool idea.
