First one was great. The rest would have been better if they didn't keep reusing the same joke. But at least the Army has a sense of humor.

Could have been better, but I'll give them on the pass on the basis that these videos are primarily actual PSAs with valuable safety advice; the comedic value is just a bonus.

Some 46R and/or Qs are having some fun.

From the foggy memory banks:

There was a film from the 70's about M-16 safety. Featured a nerd called Crackpot Crackshot. To demonstrate the recoil of the M-16, he put the rifle up to his face and fired. He then spit out some teeth. He then put the rifle against his crouch and fired again. There were two very load gongs. The drill sergeant grabs the rifle away from him and says "That didn't hurt, did it Crackshot?" Toothless and high pitched, Crackshot replies "No drill sergeant, I didn't feel a thing."

That one and the Gamma Goat driver distracted to death by the braless disco dancer are favorites.

I had a guy in the comm squadron apologize to me for the AFN commercials. They're terrible.

But without AFN, how will I get my 20 anti sexual harrasment messages every hour?

I do to, turns out she is no longer poltically correct for a military that is still 85% straight male.

"From the 1950s through the 1970s, Connie and Bonnie were played up as "cheesecake" targeted at the mostly male GIs to help interest them in using PS. Following an increased presence of females in the Army since that time, and at the urging of Congresswoman Bella Abzug and Senator William Proxmire, the magazine updated the two characters in March 1980 to a more modest and professional form."

People used to mail VHS tapes of commercials to people we knew while we were stationed in Germany during the mid-80's.  I never quite understood why.
