Weekend PSAs: Call Graph Can Die In A Fire Edition
I know Gandy experienced nerdrage on Tuesday and I was close to. I didn’t explain it in the WORT recording post but basically we recorded WORT2 all fine and dandy, except the recording file only outputted Gandy’s voice. But for some reason Call Graph played the raw podcast fine. Very confusing. At one point I was talking to Call Graph support but they left. Guess it just goes to show that at least with MX Skype Recorder you’re getting what you pay for. Basically, instead of 2 weeks you’ll have to wait 4 weeks for WORT2 now. Anyways, onto our PSAs of this weekend. We’ve got NARCS in a half shell, a speed comparison and
Drug PSA – TMNT: Joey’s Got Smart
You’ve seen Peewee Herman, you’ve seen Clint Eastwood and now ladies and gentlemen I present to you the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES! NARCS IN A HALF SHELL! NARC POWER! Ok it’s a run of the mill 1980s Drug PSA and it’s not like the Ninja Turtles were the only cartoon stars to appear into Drug PSAs but it’s still a funny advert. First off, since when were the Turtles teachers? I’m so angry I didn’t get them as teachers when I was little. I got Mrs.Bird but no Mr.Turtles. Secondly, that must be the youngest drug dealer ever and finally, “I’m not a chicken, you’re a turkey!” Ladies and gentlemen, you just witnessed the greatest insult of all time.
Hit the jump for the remaining two PSAs.
Driving PSA – The Faster You Go The Bigger The Mess
This is a first for Australia to have a PSA on here if I remember right. This one is a return to shock value but I won’t spoil it for you. Just make sure you’re not drinking or eating anything. It’s a bit unrealistic but it’s a better way to make the point of not driving faster than some other Driving PSAs have.
Suicide Bomber PSA – Unknown
I didn’t see this coming and neither did you. Seems that in the middle east they made a PSA or two persuading people not to be suicide bombers. OK fair point, it’s a serious issue and a PSA is one way of informing the public. The thing is, as much as explosions can fling people around, the explosion in this PSA is just ridiculous. The suicide bomber only has a small amount of explosives but people are flying everywhere, cars are flying into the air and down and one guy gets thrown through a window. It’s a decent enough PSA, just slightly unrealistic.
