1963 Bike Safety Video

Monday mornings I usually try to cheer you up by posting something funny on this blog. Well today's selection is more creepy than funny. It's a 1963 film on bike safety and it's unusual to say the least. To start with, the children in the film are wearing monkey masks. And they get picked off one by one when they make bicycle-riding mistakes. And the title is 'One Got Fat,' which you will understand by the end of the film. Happy viewing and pay attention if you're a bike rider!

I think I may have nightmares tonight. Lol. Of course, some of the kids might have been saved if they had been wearing helmets.

Can monkeys wear bike helmets? I'm not sure they'd fit over the ears. I found the whole thing disturbing, yet strangely facinating. Can't look away.... -Staci
