This Drowning PSA From The 1970s Gave So Many Kids Nightmares For Life

In the 1970s, Britain was experiencing an alarmingly high number of child fatalities from drowning. So the government decided to do something about it. In 1973, the Central Office of Information, in association with Illustra Films, produced a PSA entitled Lonely Water.

The PSA featured a demonic figure warning children to stay away from the water. It ran for several years during commercial breaks in children’s television programming. But was it effective? Check it out below and see for yourself…

Today, Lonely Water has achieved cult status, especially among adults who were children at the time it aired. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it also terrified millions of British children into never swimming again. Well, at least it kept them from drowning…?

Student Internet PSA From 1995 Accurately Predicted The Modern Internet

This video was made in 1995 by the 5th grade students at Ray Bjork school in Helena Montana, and a copy was uploaded to YouTube in 2009. But only now has it gone viral.

Appropriately, the student-made PSA is about the Interent, and how it’s going to change how we work, study, and have fun. They even touch on all the feline obsessing. 

Much like the AT&T commercials from the same era, the PSA accurately predicted the Internet. Back then we knew what was ahead, just the RAM, CPU’s, and bandwidth weren’t there yet. 

The video is featured on DogAndPonyShow, LaughingSquidDailyWhat, and TheAtlantic

Buying Bottled Water Is Like Buying Bottled Air PSA

Buying Bottled Water Is Like Buying Bottled Air PSA

Finally, after years of marketing, the masses have been conditioned to pay for what was once a completely free item. Water. 

Even though many bottled ‘spring’ waters have been found to be dirtier than tap water, the people don’t seem to know or really care. They’re perfectly willing to pay more for bottled water per gallon than gas.

To combat this mindset, Australian water company Yarra Valley Water has commissioned this sarcastic PSA to demonstrate just how ridiculous it is to buy bottled water. Almost as stupid as buying bottled air. 

Bottled air…? Hmm. Actually that seems like a lucrative untapped market….
