WTF WED! AN ELEPHANT WATCHES A PSA ABOUT RACISM & FRENCH-KISSING!
This week we've got a few things I've had cooking on the backburner; first up is the rather disturbing though often amusing madness of filmcow's animation. We've discussed it before, but it's always nice to take in a little slice of insanity. This week we're taking the big pill before we get to the little ones for your viewing dis/pleasure.
Then, we've got a more stable formula with a step down nostalgia avenue in the form of a parade of bad PSAs from 80's and 90's sitcoms. These were really popular in the after school special era of political correctness and morality that I grew up in-- sometimes the morals were well-handed and clever but, more often than not, they beat you over the head with a box of corniness.
Apparently, the Japanese view the average American as looking like my best friend Zach and speaking the language from that weird music video about what English sounds like to the rest of the world. American English does, actually, have a reputation for sounding pretty badass to many foreign ears(blame Hollywood) and dorky to others (dunno who to blame on that one?).
