Inspired by JHarris's HA! FPP, I had a sudden flashback to a promo that appeared frequently one of those comedy cable channels back in the early nineties. It was a strange promo in that it was advertising not a show but world peace. Middle school-aged me could never figure out whether it was sincere or not. [more inside]

A few months ago in the daily deluge of links I see there was a very cute (possibly Australian) animated PSA for children about the difference between good and bad touching. I meant to show it to my son, but I forgot to bookmark it, and googling it does not bring up the expected results (plus just leads to awkward combination of keywords) If you saw it, do you remember where it is?
Do you remember seeing a public service anouncement about not wearing shirts with your name on them in the early 90s? [more inside]

I am good friends with my ex husband. He learned a couple of months ago that his PSA was over 20. He was also having a serious problem with his leg at the time (he had a femoral by pass surgery). That surgery went well and he has recovered from it..but during that time the high PSA results were put on the back burner until he could get through the surgery. [more inside]
Do you remember a late 80's anti-drug PSA that was a short film entirely set to the M/A/R/R/S song "Pump Up The Volume"? Was this a national ad? Can it be found anywhere online? More details inside... [more inside]

Where can I find a Forest Service PSA commercial where a beautiful lady tells you that "only you can prevent forest fires" before she pulls off her face to reveal Smokey Bear?
Searching for info or video of a 1960s-1970s animated US-televised public service announcement against 'hate.' Angry man approaches viewer, head swells and three-pronged arrows whirl in his heart. Head swells and turns red and bursts as narrator says '[when you] hate, you only hurt yourself.' Possibly American Heart Association? Will donate $10 to charity chosen by first person to point me to correct online video. Many thanks.
Does anyone know of any public service announcements or other advertisements that contain a message that says it's ok to be gay? Examples of what I am talking about can be seen here and here [more inside]
I need resources to help me negotiate/make sense of the minefield of my "prostate specific antigen" (PSA) score/level. [more inside]
A few years ago, I saw a PSA narrated by what sounded like a black man in his 40s or 50s. It described how one summer he and his brother were told by their father to build a brick wall for no apparent purpose. He talked about how hot it was, how they didn't spend any time with their friends, and they had to rebuild parts that weren't up to snuff. At the end, the father said something like, "Now don't ever tell me there's anything you can't do." I loved the ad, and was wondering whether it was available online. Any ideas?
Who produced this PSA ad, in what city, and what year? [more inside]
