Subject: Best PSA from '80s

Written By: star500 on 06/22/09 at 10:39 pm

What do you think the best PSA's (Public Service Announcement) are for this particular era. The best ones, I think are:

Chew, Chew, Chew Your Food

"I learned it by watching you, Dad!"

"This is your brain...this is your brain on drugs...any questions?"

When I grow up...

Don't Drown Your Food!


"We're not candy"

Girl jumping into the empty pool

The Snake Drug Dealer

That last one used to scare the bejesus out of post your own favorite PSA's from the '80s and enjoy the ones I posted!
