"The Ad Council and it's continuous commitment to promoting AIDS prevention in 1991 partnered with the National Institute on Drug Abuse with the launching of a new campaign; that would help inform individuals with emphasis on teenagers that drugs negatively affect ones judgement with regards to sexual behavior which often place them at risk for AIDS."
The public service advertising featured cartoon characters that experience anxiety during the morning after party, and the tagline, "Get High, Get Stupid, Get AIDS."
In thinking of a throw back cartoon I decided to have a more serious nail talk with you dolls and gents from this advertisement that would always show while I was watching Sesame Street. (or some other cartoon on local television)
Janine and Barry surely had my interest with their screaming "What About AIDS?"
I sure do remember as a child I did not want to get whatever they were scared of and that mindset has not changed. It's a bit disappointing that they don't show ads like this anymore for today's younger generation and generations to come.
Although there are various mediums that raise awareness to HIV/AIDS I think ads like these should continue at the intermissions of cartoons kids are so addicted to watching.
Hey! Let's get to those pics. Huh!
