Quick anons, post really fucked up psa's from your countries.
The UK never failed to pump out really tweaked shit in the 70s
Canada has had some really fucked up PSAs
I remember they had a couple of crazy ones for domestic violence. One showed a dude beating the shit out of his secretary at work, another one had a guy backhand his waitress and pour hot coffee on her face
Not Australian, but this is fucked-up in so many levels (The Grim Reaper AIDS PSA)
And now an Argentinian one, about car safety. Saw it when I was fucking 10, I was watching a comedy/bloopers show at midnight. Fucking cried. In general this car safety association (Let's Fight for Life) has creepy PSAs.
HOLY SHIT THE FUCKING THUMBNAIL, I'M 10 AGAIN.
The Spirit of Dark and Lonely Water is excellent.
>dat Cockney accent
OI LUK THERE'S SOMEONE IN THE WOTA
>Live in Northern Ireland
>Our PSA's make the ones on the Mainland look like fucking Disney
>pic unrelated since there are no black people in Northern Ireland
In the USA kids are so stupid and lazy there are PSA to tell them to check out the forest from the US Forest Service
Tweens discover Shrek in the forest doing Cocaine
The John Hurt narrated aids psa in the uk from the 80s was scary as fuck.
>land of the free
>not free to cross the road wherever you want
they had a scarehouse-style experience at my school with various rooms w/ actors in them doing "illegal" stuff, and we had to 'do the right thing', like refuse when they offer us glue to sniff, or ask us to get in their car.
The rooms really looked like realistic drug dens and there were corridors with no lights that you could get lost down if you didn't follow your group.
was pretty fucked up.
>implying the breaker shouldn't have been locked off.
dont ever trust anyone with stuff like that, not just big machines. The number of stories about an electrician getting shocked because the old lady who asked them to put in some sockets didn't realise why the electric was off and wanted a cup of tea.
always lock off breakers, guy working should have fucking known that man.
Don't let this thread die, I love PSAs.

i've never seen one of those in finland actually.
I know a guy who lives with a bullet inside his skull. He got shot in the head, the bullet ricocheted inside his skull and since it would have been too dangerous to try to remove it the doctors decided to leave it as it is. He can't move left side of his body very well but he's pretty alright. He even got married.
>Brits so fucking hardcore they make a feature length PSA about nuke warfare complete with retarded children getting post apocalyptic raped
> Air it on tv on a regular weeknight without telling anyone
yeah they don't fucking mess is right. It's too bad they never made one about mooselimbs
I was literally in the process of posting it. GOAT PSA just because of him.
Best choice for Joker of all time outside of mid-70s Bowie Trigger warning, skeletons
This scared the shit out of me when it first aired. I knew what it was going to be before I even clicked it.
Worst safety PSA ever. Or best, if that was their goal which I guess it was.
Huh. That's not that's taught in the ESL books I have, so I thought it was the same to say Argentine or Argentinian. Found this online: http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/45309/argentine-or-argentinian
Thanks for the kind tip, boludo de mierda.
jesus christ did that kid drown in a manure pond?
>that cop grabbing his first aid kit and then giving the nope signal
> i like the big black ones
>i like the brown wriggly ones
>Stop, my invincible son
>one day we have a talk on road safety
>parents come up on stage and talk about the police calling at midnight to tell them their kids died in a car crash
>how they arrived at the scene and watched the remains of their children being scooped up from the footwell they were crushed into
>The Central Office of Information was closed in 2010
>No more PSAs
>They shut it down to save money
>Generations will now grow up more and more stupid
GG Government GG
That guy sounds like a bro. I'm not even necessarily against drugs, but fuck drug dealers. If there ever were a time when the death penalty was justified it would be to get rid of them and the scum and fear that they bring to neighborhoods.
Glad he survived.
This PSA's not racist, as the title claims. It's a good message, "don't be a drug addict and become a slave to a drug, your ancestors fought for freedom blahblah."
>400 years ago AFRICAN AMERICANS were brought to this country
They were African, what an idiot.
it fucking annoys me how this psa got called out for 'fat shaming'. people aren't supposed to be morbidly obese
He was a politician who got caught evading taxes.
He was going to go to jail for a long time. He held a press conference, people anticipated that he would resign in shame and confess to what he did.
Instead, he killed himself.
I remember seeing a PSA from australia or something about driving safely and it had a bunch of horrible car accidents with some song playing over them all. It was really well done and I want to watch it again. I remember there was a kid getting ran over in slow motion in it if anyone can help me find it.
I wish more politicians would kill themselves.
Instead they're forced to "resign" so they can go and hide in a log cabin somewhere and continue to rape children and plot evil things.
>joke about needing to go into a sheep dip
>mates say not to joke about it because it's a horrible way to die and one of their friends recently fell into one and died
Seeing that first one as a fattie myself, it just seems like my problem is insurmountable and I'll never fix it, as all the damage was done when I was younger.
All it makes me feel is regret, with a resolve to be more fatalistic and care less about my health in the future.
NZ does a lot of good PSAs. Noticeably they've switched from the shock/horror ones to more thoughtful stuff in order to get the messages across more effectively.
It's still jarring for me to see video that's cinematic or professional looking only for the actors to speak with New Zealand accents
Growing up I got used to NZ productions as being low budget pieces of shit or things with mainly foreigners in them
Seems pretty tame compared to Barefoot Gen
>believing in true love
Hahahahaha, why would you think marriage has anything to do with true love when half of them end in divorce? Why would you think true love exists when you could theoretically go to any city in the world and find the love of your life there, because there are literally millions of people on this earth who could fit the bill and the only difference is which one you find first
>tfw no budd dwyer biopic starring jeffery tambor
I think you got the wrong message buddy, it's not sad, I'm saying there are millions of 'ones' out there, people that you would be happy to love and spend your life with, which is great no? But there is no 'the one' just 'the one that you happen to meet before the other ones' if you meet any at all, that fact doesn't in any way diminish what you could have with that person
>now why can't I find any of them ohgodimsolonely.jpg
>American PSA features a house robbery
>the burglar is always white
I wanna hear more of him
>somebody shut that cunt up
>I went through three wars, you think this is new to me?
>don't panic, scrub
>just get me a towel, a wheelbarrow and a shovel and I'll handle this shit
>be a train driver
>be driving the afternoon suburban service
>woman drives on toe track when there is no room on the other side
>your train approaches
>traffic doesn't move
>she can't drive anywhere
>doesn't get herself and her kids out of the car for whatever moronic reasons
>see terrified little girl screaming through the window as you plough through the car
The scary thing is that although this is not real, this sort of thing really happens, and as the train driver, there is literally nothing you can do about it.
>your gonna have to put some work in to get me ready now
>best friend in high school started using heroin
>did everything I could to help
>she won't speak to anyone outside anymore
>look up her tumblr
>hasn't posted in five months
Don't do heroin, you guys.
Not that guy, but I wish more people who killed themselves did so publicly like that. Shit is so jarring, it's an addiction. I have this secret hope every time I watch live TV that someone will just pull out a gun. Maybe it's me just being a sociopath, but I'm not trying to be edgy.
>GIT THAT BALL AAHT!
The 70's man, when working class kids from the South East didn't talk like black lads :/
The railway PSA I remember from when I was a lad (40+ lad here) is the Robbie one (see below) we had a special assembly at junior school and a man from British Rail in his uniform came round and showed it on a projector and told us not to trespass on the railways.
We always used to have a visit by a fireman before bonfire night and they used to show us slides of kids who had been horribly burnt after mucking about with fireworks. Most notable was the picture of the young boys knob and balls who had been horribly burnt by some lads sticking a lit firework in his front pocket for a giggle, shocking stuff for a 7-10 y/o, wouldn't be allowed to show that to kids nowadays I reckon.
ITS OK TO PUNCH A WALL
BUT ITS NEVER OK TO SHAKE A BABY
Shit is funny, because now if you punch a wall or break something with a child present, its child abuse. BETTER SHAKE MUH BABY INSTEAD
The older I get, the slower and more timidly I drive. I am constantly worried about pedestrians (especially children and old people) stumbling out in front of me. And yet, I feel like I am even more dangerous now because I am so worried! These things trigger the shit out of me.
And yes, I am laughing at myself for being such a tard.
Why would anyone who sleeps on the road be watching television?
Holy shit i just thought of something...
What if she didn't want to be married and actually burned her self on purpose to get out of it?
Look at the way she uses air quotes when she says "accident". She is aware of the fact that there is grease on the floor and she really " should have cleaned [it] up".
>HufflePuff 3 weeks ago
>WOW. That little red head girl is beautiful, what a lil cutie. Nice commercial=) btw, what is her name? is she an actress?
Didn't know /tv/ has a youtube account.
Loved this ad. I'm pretty sure the full 5 and a half minutes aired on tv a couple of times
What the fuck? Irish sounds like a very weird english? or is it that since they are both latin/germanic languages my brain can understand everything based on whatever its based on, but they arent actually speaking english.
Dunno if this has been posted, but it's pretty fucked up. Pic related.
jesus fucking christ i've been laughing for about 10 minutes to this
mostly due to imagining /pol/s commentary on it
