The first time I saw this PSA on TV, the background ukulele music made an impact on me. It reminds me of Aldrine's playing on "Schizophrenic Snowflakes." Does anyone know who's playing the music in the background?

It's Eddie Vedder's, "Rise", apart of the "Into the Wild" soundtrack. And I believe it is not an ukulele, but a mandolin. Great movie by the way.

Awesome Soundtrack, and yes it's a Mandolin. The movie was really well done. I read the book wneh it first came out, and then read it again, and again. Fascinating, and haunting story.
