When Snowmen Go Bad

You know those PSAs done by municipal TV stations? (The same stations that broadcast the county board of commissioners Tuesday night meeting in its entirety.) The spots are almost always sappy, stupid and have really poor production values.

This one is better than most and comes from Springfield, Missouri. It was apparently one in a series called "Character Ed," designed to teach kids to have a good attitude, along with other positive character traits that will cause them to get walked on later in life.

This is the January edition, with happy snowman and grumpy snowman contrasting the right and wrong ways to approach a hard task. Watch after the end, as the makers stuck on an alternate ending. City employees having fun. Who would've thought that was possible?

    Poor little guy....

    I like the stop motion - reminds me of Gumbie. :)

  • I used to work for the City of Newport Beach and we had a blast. Probably helped that we'd goof around the whole time on the job.

    I resurrected my old blog because of your comment, which means you have to read it now =)
