Video: Blogger scarred by British PSA aimed at teens

posted at 7:25 pm on May 19, 2009 by Allahpundit

I can’t say much by way of intro or I’ll spoil the surprise. Long story short: It involves a bloody struggle on the playground and it’s graphic enough to have been pulled by YouTube — and then reposted, with this particular clip having already drawn almost 100,000 views in a day. I’d call it a palate cleanser, but … well, you’ll see.

Still not as harrowing as the most traumatizing PSA evah, though.

i am scarred as well. i think we need a… cleaner… palate cleanser, AP.

homesickamerican on May 19, 2009 at 7:29 PM

For some reason I thought

the most traumatizing PSA evah,

was going to involve a hot iron and a chocolate bunny.

Yeah, that was a little f***ed up.

Upstater85 on May 19, 2009 at 7:32 PM

I, for one, would like to thank you for posting this at dinner time. We owe you one, Allah. And by “owe you own”, I mean a flaming bag of poo.

amerpundit on May 19, 2009 at 7:33 PM

I think it’s inappropriate and potentially damaging to scare kids into fearing the facts of life. How many people are afraid of the water because of Jaws? Here we’re not talking about sharks but having a baby, and Europe needs more babies, not less.

FloatingRock on May 19, 2009 at 7:35 PM

Whisky!…Tango!…oh forget it.

ronsfi on May 19, 2009 at 7:36 PM

I so saw that coming. This proves once and for all that I am in fact insane.

I guess having a baby is a little like breakfast on the Nostromo. Especially a surprise baby.

SarahW on May 19, 2009 at 7:41 PM

If only the evil conservatives had allowed her to have an abortion she’d…

Oh I can’t even fake it.

Is that organization the British equivilant of Planned Parenthood, or something?

Last comment, considering what they were wearing, couldn’t Hermione just magically deliver the baby without any pain?

Lamanious Epidural!

rihar on May 19, 2009 at 7:42 PM

I’m sorry…I laughed. Maybe it’s because I am a teen.

Emily M. on May 19, 2009 at 7:42 PM

All of those who think the US should be more Euroweenieish should be required to watch this ridiculous PSA every hour.
___________

btw, did the horribly bad fake acting/screaming at the beginning make anyone else laugh?

Branch Rickey on May 19, 2009 at 7:43 PM

I’ve watched it twice, and I still am not getting the message.

Could someone clarify?

MadisonConservative on May 19, 2009 at 7:43 PM

There’s a ten month waiting list for abortions in the UK healthcare system.

MadisonConservative on May 19, 2009 at 7:43 PM

I think it’s that having a baby is a violent, painful and publicly humiliating experience that should be avoided at all costs.

FloatingRock on May 19, 2009 at 7:45 PM

That’s a good one! :)

FloatingRock on May 19, 2009 at 7:46 PM

Considering the state of the NHS, I can totally imagine women having to give birth in the middle of a school field.

I think this should be repurposed for the U.S. anti-national healthcare campaign.

I mean, that was the point, right?

Don’t have sex. If you do, you could get pregnant and end up having your baby delivered on the schoolyard by that awkward girl you didn’t want to be a lab partner with in Biology.

Emily M. on May 19, 2009 at 7:48 PM

Ok, the site is as messed up as most of these liberal type things.

Only girls can get emergency contraception — the best thing for boys to do is use a condom correctly every time they have sex.

1. The bold is funny

2. If you are still calling yourself a boy . . .

- The Cat

P.S. Reminds me of the ‘Responsible Alcohol’ PSAs. (Which are nothing more than Commercials) Drink Responsibly! Yeah, don’t drive drunk, but keep on drinkin’. What about “Drive Sober.” Of course the word Sober will come no were near them.

P.P.S. It’s like I’m talking abstinence with out even saying it. Ok here’s the thing, screw the word abstinence (sh’up), it’s a big word and sounds scary. How about GROW THE OBAMING OBAMA UP FIRST! I don’t know, Fall in love get married raise a family. Something like that.

had an acquaintance decide to abort her child after seeing the Ultra and acting as though she was already crowned mother/martyr of the year….

“If you kiss a boy, you will get pregnant and die of AIDS.”

blatantblue on May 19, 2009 at 7:50 PM

When I was on vacation in France, a French family invited me to dinner at a restaurant. In between multiple courses, they would serve some sort of clear, very high proof liquor, poured over shaved ice in little glasses with tiny spoons and everybody would quickly scoop it up. That’s a real palate cleanser.

Blake on May 19, 2009 at 7:50 PM

It’s an ad to reduce teenage pregnancies, not pregnancies in general.

yogi41 on May 19, 2009 at 7:50 PM

What if she was pushing the baby in………

……….. you know, to make a point against teen pregnancy?

ultrasound

was just in histrionics about the child, how great it was, etc etc then “I’m going to LSUS Med”…..gone.

If you put all the abortions of convienence in graves it’d be the size of a small state by now.

sven10077 on May 19, 2009 at 7:55 PM

I thought it was a catfight on the playground and the PSA was about gang members or some such.

I was a little suprised…yeah.

Spiritk9 on May 19, 2009 at 7:56 PM

I’m still so disturbed.

My gosh

I thought it was about bullying.

Then there’s a girl spread eagle with a lil baldie coming out

yogi41 on May 19, 2009 at 7:50 PM

I’m sure that was the intent but they’re trying to accomplish the task through terror. For the campaign to actually work it has to strike fear into the hearts of teen girls; fear that may continue to emotionally scar them into adulthood.

Not a good idea, IMO, especially when your country is already dying.

FloatingRock on May 19, 2009 at 7:58 PM

Branch Rickey on May 19, 2009 at 7:58 PM

my version of hell will be the few serious points I make being punchlines….anyway I guess what set me off was the simulated blood and such…

bothers me this all happened in the last two weeks it really galls me that a woman could be so cruel to the baby’s father as to put on a show of happiness and “maternal glow” and a day later hop in a vehicle bound for the abortionist….

seems sociopathic at a minimum and perhaps psychotic.

I thought that was a warning about the quality of socialized medicine in the UK…

TMK on May 19, 2009 at 8:29 PM

You morons. This isn’t a “Don’t have sex” PSA. The UK has devolved so seriously that they know that simply isn’t an option. Their young people are deranged and sex addicts and drunks by the time they are 17. This is a “Have an abortion” PSA.

jimmy the notable on May 19, 2009 at 8:31 PM

Don’t have sex. If you do, you could get pregnant and end up having your baby delivered on the schoolyard by that awkward girl you didn’t want to be a lab partner with in Biology.

Emily M. on May 19, 2009 at 7:48 PM

Huh.

Odd, but I don’t seem to remember any accounts of any such thing when I was in high school. Ever. First time I’ve ever heard of such a thing happening, in fact.

I’m sure it’s an epidemic, though. Kudos for the, um…courage.

Emily M. on May 19, 2009 at 7:48 PM

Hmm. I would have gone with, “See how freaky and gory this is? Ripping apart a child in the womb is much less traumatizing, and your only socially acceptable option! Otherwise, all your classmates will look up your skirt while a bundle of joy comes out.”

I laughed, too.

Disgusting

I wanted to die.

There have only been two times in my life where I said, “Allah, kill me.”

Or, “I want to commit suicide.”

1) Getting the lowest score in the class (only once in my life in college) out of a whole room of moronic football athletes who LOLed at me
2) Two girls, one cup.

And I only saw about 10 seconds of that. I want to die when I think of it.

This is why having kids in the UK is only for muslims, not for those white folks – witness that soon the white folk in the UJK will be in the minority due to low birth rates and, like their white Euopean cousins, soon dissapear.

PSAs like this will help hasten the process.

Friendly21 on May 20, 2009 at 7:29 AM

Were’s Mr. Thackeray when you need him…

“All you boys, out. Girls stay where you are. Out. ”

“I am sick of your foul language, your crude behavior and your sluttish manner. There are certain things a decent woman keeps private, and only a filthy slut would have done this and those who stood by and encouraged her are just as bad. I don’t care who’s responsible – you’re all to blame.”
