DJ Steve Aoki teams up with Metro for a ‘Party Smart’ PSA

DJ Steve Aoki warns revelers to “just be responsible” when partying.

Partying at the clubs this weekend? Steve Aoki wants you to think twice about how turnt up you get.

The Vegas-based DJ is being featured in a “Party Smart” public-service announcement produced by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The collaboration with Hakkasan Group went live July 1.

“My whole intention is to connect with you,” Aoki says in the video. “If you’re so high, you’re so drunk and you’re so lost—not in the music, but because your head’s not on straight—that’s the worst feeling.”

The PSA comes on the heels of Insomniac’s #WeAreWideAwake video, which advocates for dance-music fans to notify someone if they see a fellow enthusiast in need of help. The Hakkasan Group resident warns revelers to “just be responsible” when partying: “You can still turn up … you can still scream and shout and have a good time,” Aoki says. “That’s what I’m here to do with you.”
