Yeah - I'd completely forgotten about the first two.

Reminds me of a story about a British Aircraft eye safety film from the 1970s which was withdrawn because the employees watching it were fainting wholesale and consequently suffering numerous concussions, contusions, lacerations and so forth...

Oh, yeah, before anyone clicks on the YouTube link I'd like to reinforce Snaggy's advice that it's really, seriously not for the faint-of-heart or weak-of-stomach. Also not for young children.

And yes, we really do see these on broadcast television, but not until after 8:00 pm. or so.

I'm not normally like this, but then I'm not normally normal.

Wow...spooky, and powerful.

BTW, what is the app that makes those dreadful titles by default? Windows something-or-other? It's almost as fugly and prolific as Comic Sans. :/

There are three things you can be sure of in life: Death, taxes, and reading about fake illnesses online...

Those were pretty good videos - it's strange how well people actually respond to shock adverts with all the gory details shown, such as our Think! road safety adverts and my personal favourite regarding over-drinking...

Given the ubiquitous titles on all the exceptionally-low-budget student society films round here, I believe it's Windows Movie Maker that's to blame
