Limp Bizkit notably took aim at the pharmaceutical industry with "Pill Popper" from 2021's Still Sucks, and as the opioid crisis continues, guitarist Wes Borland is here to open our eyes to preventative measures that can be taken to stop an overdose.

In Borland's case, he has all four eyes open thanks to some of his inimitable body paint, meaning you'll have a hard time looking away from his instructional recorded with California-based non-profit organization End Overdose.

Over 71 seconds, Borland explains how to identify an opioid overdose, and how to administer the life-saving medication and follow it with assisted breathing — all while his eyes bore deep into your soul.

In Canada, NARCAN Nasal Spray — an intranasal form of naloxone — is available at no cost to all residents of the Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, and the Yukon, via each province's naloxone pharmacy programs and does not require a prescription. Further details can be found via NARCAN's official website.

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, there have been a total of 42,494 apparent opioid toxicity deaths reported between January 2016 and September 2023.
