Is Paris Hilton Dead?
Nope...It's Just A Fantasy!

Could Paris Hilton's naked "corpse" really provide an invaluable service to students preparing for prom this season? Or is it a chance for some kid to get excited at the prospect of somehow seeing her naked? Well, an interactive Public Service Announcement featuring the graphic display of a tiara-wearing, autopsied Paris Hilton with removable innards is designed to warn teenagers of the hazards of underage drinking. The display also features Tinkerbell, Hilton's forlorn pet Chihuahua with matching tiara, and debuts in the trendy Brooklyn neighborhood where prom-goers frequently dine, courtesy of Capla Kesting Fine Art.

The "Campaign to Rescue Women of Youth" featuring "The Paris Hilton Autopsy" offers a cadaveric nude Paris Hilton, laid out with twisted body and opened abdominal cavity on a coroner's table, while her cell phone remains in her grip. The 'unglamorous' display which includes support material from anti-drunk driving organizations counters "the disturbingly glamorized trend of Hollywood's 'girls gone wild'," according to gallery director, David Kesting.

Paris Hilton, good-looking but talentless, was arrested for a DUI last year. the whole idea behind this is to remind potential prom queens no one is impervious to the pitfalls of drinking. Recalling Miss USA's recent battle to keep her crown through alcohol rehab and her very questionable relationship with the Don himself, and Princess Diana's untimely death due to drunk driving, a skewed hotel heiress's tiara adorns the lifeless Paris Hilton head. Now there's a fact...a lifeless Paris Hilton head. I knew that!

Maybe there is some good in this. For some kids, maybe they won't take that drink. For others, the prospect of seeing Paris Hilton laid out like a Thanksgiving Dinner might be a fantasy in the making. This whole PSA thing, as bizarre as it's gotten, has some interesting things assoicated with it. The latest includes a website which offers high school educators an icebreaker for discussing drunk driving's consequences. Students are encouraged to take the virtual field trip to view the making of the "Paris Hilton Autopsy" and compete for prizes by writing Paris Hilton's obituary.

Oh Dorothy...we're not in Kansas anymore!
