This is video that speaks about the over saturation of violence in today's mass media.
It talks about the physical effects of violence on the human brain, mass media's ability to skew society's perception of violence by romanticizing violent characters, and encourages people to balance consumption of violent media with positive media stories to keep a healthy attitude.
