"Public Information Films"

Want to avoid death, dismemberment or blindness? These terrifying "public information films" will help you steer clear of life's dangers. They will probably also cause a little post-traumatic stress disorder, and they don't tell you how to prevent or treat that, but hey. They can't do everything for you.

In the film pictured above, two dewy-eyed teenagers are falling in love by text message, walking toward each other, sweet music setting the tone - and then BOOM! Textboy wasn't paying proper attention to traffic, and stepped in front of a car. Sparing no detail (cracked and flailing limbs, blood running from the mouth, terrible thud, skull cracking windshield), the point is hammered home. Text message your sweetie-pie while walking on the street - DEAD!
