A surprisingly touching PSA about organ donation starring the world's biggest a**hole.

This is Coleman Sweeney. He's an asshole — and the star of a new PSA from Donate Life, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness for organ donation.

In the PSA, Sweeney more than earns his title as possibly "The World's Biggest Asshole" by doing things like stealing people's laundry, defiling the women's bathroom at a busy nightclub, and shooting paintballs at puppies.


But at the end of the PSA, he actually manages to redeem himself ... by dying.

You see, Sweeney was an organ donor. His liver, heart, tendons, and corneas ended up saving or improving the lives of four people, thus turning Coleman Sweeney, a certified asshole, into a hero — and this PSA about organ donation into an incredibly funny short that might actually save some lives.

Rest in peace, you heroic piece of sh**. Image via Sarah Waitress/YouTube.

Of course, even if you're not an asshole like Sweeney, becoming an organ donor is still a heroic thing to do.

According to Live On NY, over 120,000 people are waiting for life-saving organ donations, and one donor can save as many as eight lives. That same donor can also improve the lives of up to 50 individuals by donating tissue and eyes.

Plus, anyone over the age of 18 can register to become a donor, regardless of medical history. So there's pretty much no reason not to.

Even Coleman Sweeney, the world's biggest asshole, knew that becoming an organ donor is the right thing to do.

Earlier this month, a beluga whale caught the world's attention by playing fetch with a rugby ball thrown by South African researchers off the waters of Norway.

The adorable video has been watched over 20 million times, promoting people across the globe to wonder how the whale became so comfortable around humans.

It's believed that the whale, known as Hvaldimir, was at some point, trained by the Russian military and was either released or escaped.

Your first period is always a weird one. You know it's going to happen eventually, but you're not always expecting it. One day, everything is normal, then BAM. Puberty hits you in a way you can't ignore.

One dad is getting attention for the incredibly supportive way he handled his daughter's first period. "So today I got 'The Call,'" Maverick Austin started out a Facebook post that has now gone viral.

The only thing is, Austin didn't know he got "the call." His 13-year-old thought she pooped her pants. At that age, your body makes no sense whatsoever. It's a miracle every time you even think you know what's going on.

Plus-size women are in the majority. In America, 68% of women wear a size 14 or higher. Yet many plus-sized are ignored by the fashion industry. Plus-sized clothing is a $21 billion industry, however only one-fifth of clothing sales are plus-sized. On top of that, plus-sized women are often body shamed, further reinforcing that bigger body types are not mainstream despite the fact that it is common.

Plus-size fashion blogger Katie Sturino recently called out her body shamers. Sturino runs the blog, The 12ish Style, showing that plus-sized fashion isn't – and shouldn't be – limited to clothes that hide the body.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.
