g.i. joe psa redux

How is it taking me this long to post about this? Several years ago, by the light of a Target lamp in my dorm room, I remember laughing out loud to this crap. It was before viral was viral, and before I could immediately post this on someone's Facebook page. I KNOW.

In the mid-eighties, there was an animated cartoon program called "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero." I'm sure boys across America were loving the soldier action/watching and struggling with their sexuality. After every episode, a public service announcement (PSA, y'all) would appear encouraging viewers to make good choices and stay out of sticky situations. All with the help of friendly soldiers, of course. The thing is, the animation is pretty terrible. I mean, we expected it from television then, so no bigs. But someone decided to take this to the next level.

Eric Fensler and his production company from Chicago redubbed audio and re-cut these PSAs to make amazing new ones. Some of these brought me huge laughs back in the day and still can. Beware: language can be NSFW so make sure speakers are not at top volume. There are a ton of these, and you can see them here. I've posted a few of my absolute favorites. I wish I had thought of this.
