You are NOT kidding. I've watched some fairly gross videos in my time, but this one has me wanting the brain bleach!

I wasn't so much grossed out as completely dumbfounded by the, the, the -- I have no words here -- the inanity and cognitive dissonance.

Well, and the lie about being completely germ-free.

Great googli moogli, that's *not* a parody?!
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on February 11th, 2011 03:51 pm (UTC)
If it's a parody, they've gone to a lot of trouble -- click on the Washington State Government link in the video information, and there's a whole channel of videos, including the Governor's budget information and assorted other PSAs I'm afraid to watch.

. . . is that real?

I think so?

See, they showed that when I was in kindergarten[1] and we were all like, "dude, you're treating us like we're *kids*." You never heard such scorn as comes from 5 year olds sick of being treated like kids.

It was our next teacher who taught us the valuable lessons, like "once you pull the pin on Mr. Hand Grenade, he is no longer your friend" and "covering indexes avoid the problems of repeated lookups because all values are contained within the index itself, not the table".

(You can actually teach some very interesting database management lessons via fingerpainting. I'm surprised they don't include that in the classes intended for grownups.)

[1] Not really - I grew up in Philadelphia; they wouldn't have dared.

Some day I will sit down with you and get an explanation of that.

It'd get more hits if they titled it "Two Hands, One Sink" :>

It beats the one the county sheriff put out about finding illegals in your neighborhood, hands down.

And that got pulled by the ACLU.

And just think, they spent state taxpayer dollars to make that video! Someone sat down and wrote the script for that, story-boarded it all out, and all the people up and down the chain said "Great! Let's do it!"

The people running that video production company must be connected to someone in the state health department, no doubt (unless it's done in-house, in which case....well, bless their hearts).
