If you like a bit of surrealism with your community safety videos, this clip from 1963 will trip you out. It features a bunch of kids going for a picnic ride while inexplicably wearing ape masks, a bit of fat shaming, stereotyping and grisly deaths aplenty. And some pretty darn useful safety tips too.
It’s a bit disturbing how the surviving kid just continues on to the park and eats his dead friends’ lunches… played by a young Jeffery Dahmer maybe?
I stumbled upon it while watching Aphex Twin videos, when it popped up on this Boards Of Canada track… I didn’t sleep well after this.
Okay, that is weird.
WTF did I just watch?
Drugs are bad, mmmmmmkay?
Superb! Right? Right.
That narrators voice has an irritatingly sanctimonious tone.
