Metta Man: Mental Health Crusader


By day he’s a wildly inconsistent, past his prime, occasionally brilliant, often mediocre pro ball player. By night Metta World Peace becomes Metta Man, a crusader for mental health.

How better to serve your agenda for mental wellness than doing a completely gonzo PSA? That’s the Metta approach and what you can expect is imagery meant more for a Japanese music video than a serious message about seeking help.

See for yourself.

All joking aside it is refreshing to see Metta being Metta in everything he does. So few people are as true to themselves as the former Ron Artest. To his credit he’s taken every opportunity and approach possible to get his message across and has made his life a living example. Much respect.

However, I’m not exactly sure if grinding a rail atop a skyscraper then dunking flaming turkeys and a curling stone over a Mini Cooper is the most sincere way of discussing mental health. But it’s not the nature of the message that matters, it’s the message itself…I guess. So next time you’re in Downtown L.A. and you see someone doing skate stunts on rooftops while rocking a lime-green cape don’t you dare call them crazy – just call on Metta Man!
