Home is full of bad things that can hurt you very much... Today's video lunch has a message, and that message is that your house is trying to kill you. Like a 1970s Paranormal Activity for the under 10 set, the green-faced Mr. Yuk poison prevention PSA warns little humans about the dangers at home through the use of bad-trip imagery, a menacing (yet catchy) song, and cartoons of dying kids. Enjoy the traumatic flashback. And dont' drink chemicals.
