swine flu public service announcement


Far be it for me to add to the exponentially growing hysteria surrounding this current swine flu outbreak – really, I just wanted to make a picture of a pig wearing a mask. So I did :) – but I felt it was my duty as a citizen of the world to share this PSA with as many people as possible.

swine-flu-psa-labelReleased by the U.S. Public Health Service in 1976, it’s a cautionary tale of how a guy called Joe managed to single-handedly infect the whole world with the deadly swine flu virus, causing zombies to roam the earth feasting on the brains of their victims who they held down with their trotters which had replaced their hands and feet and who liked to listen to Coldplay and U2 and etc etc etc.. Or something like that.

Either way, it’s worth listening to regardless of whether you’re skeptical or susceptible. In the first instance, it’s funny, and if you fall within the latter group, it’s helpful.
