Remember around fireworks night those harrowing government films would come on in the middle of the toy commercials during CITV warning us about handling fireworks and not getting caught in the bonfire and stuff? I was such a little puss I used to flat out walk out of the room covering my ears when they were on, I always found them genuinely distressing, the thought of a burnt up face or getting trapped in a fire haunted me for weeks if I was stupid enough not to see one of these films coming in between the Boglin and Sylvanian Families ads. The thing is, they fucking worked, those fear mongering little shorts -I never went within a hundred feet of a firework once they were lit, and I'm still a bit scared of them now.
In Arab countries they show those kind of films all year round, except they're more worried about issues like obedience and less concerned with telling the kids the truth, and their government films reflect that. This film, entitled "Child Who Treats Parents Very Badly" is a pretty great example of the powers that be freaking the kids out and presumeably thinking that the end justifies the means. Woah. Behave, kids, or you'll get turned into a furry snake demon like this stupid girl who told her mum to fuck off or something.
