Deb Linda Finds PSAs Thrilling

What? You don’t think a public service announcement can be thrilling? Well, take a gander at this one and see if your mind is changed:

Uh-huh. Makes you want to go feel yourself up, doesn’t it? *wicked grin*

Which is, of course, the whole point. Because you need to feel yourself up to make sure you don’t have any unwanted lumps. Trust me, nothing in this world is more thrilling than keeping yourself healthy, so please let these helpfully half-clad boys remind you to take care of your girls.

You owe it to yourself to watch it. *cough* Over and over again, if necessary.

And, because I’m an equal opportunity blogger, here’s a little eye candy for those of you who might prefer looking at something other than half-naked men:

Kind of gives “public service” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

P.S. I was going to do a thriller post on this franchise:

Since it is Friday the 13th and all. But . . .Β  well, I haven’t actually seen any of them. Those kinds of thrills give me nightmares.

So, what do you find more thrilling? PSAs or scary movies?Β  (Or both.) Got any favorites? (Of either.)

  1. Linda, I will admit I am a big fan of 80s horror films (I know–the shocks just keep on coming, right?) and I was schooled well by an ex-boyfriend on the classics–so that said, the first Friday the 13th is the only one I have and will see. So yes, I do like the scary movie thrills. But that said, I have a genuine concern (and is the part where everyone sees how old I am?) that today’s horror movies are just plain sadistic and so disturbing it makes my skin and soul crawl just to see the posters. Gahh. I miss those innocent days of Jamie Lee Curtis walking through the fallen leaves on her way to a babysitting job…

    1. I can handle a good psychological thriller (though it still might give me nightmares), but not the bloody stuff. Even the title of the movie “Saw” makes me shudder, and not in a good way.

  2. Do you think the Komen foundation could get Edward Norton to do one of those PSAs? You know, since it’s for a good cause and everything?

    I, too, am a sucker for good horror movie. The key word here, though, is good. In the 80s, I worked in a video store that allowed the employees free rentals. I must have watched the whole horror section in six months (it was huge). I was always more partial to A Nightmare on Elm Street. πŸ™‚ (I’m with you and Erica on the new movies like Saw. I don’t know what that is, but it’s not horror.)

      1. Not to worry, Delia!

        I scoured those same video shelves and we went through them all too. Nightmare on Elm Street is a classic. And I was always a fan of the New Nightmare (was that the one where the actress is revisited by Freddy years later–thought that was a good twist on the usually uninspired sequel…) John Carpenter could do no wrong in my book, either.

        Boy, do I miss those shelves! All those clunky VHS cases lined up.

    1. We could start a petition about Edward Norton. Maybe we can convince him to do it. You know, for the sake of the ta-tas.

      Re horror movies: the odd thing is, as long as there’s humor involved somehow, I’m okay with them. Like the Evil Dead movies with Bruce Campbell. Or Shaun of the Dead (really cute zombie movie). It’s when the blood is too real that I can’t take it. Squeamish stomach. *grin*

        1. Eek! The pencil! Of course, I saw the first Evil Dead right here in my den, surrounded by my family, under the influence of good red wine. Perhaps that’s why I giggled through it.

  3. That was hilarious!!! I have tears in my eyes, especially when the nurse looked at him and tripped on the chair. LOL!!

    I don’t care for scary movies but the original Halloween is a favorite and I recently watched The Blair Witch Project and thought that was FREAKY–in a good way. πŸ™‚

    1. I’ve never seen The Blair Witch Project. Not so much because of it’s scary rep, but because of the shaky camera. Every preview I saw was wiggling all over the screen, and it made me dizzy to think of watching a whole movie like that. *grin*

  4. Sorry, I just noticed there were 13 comments. And seeing as it’s Friday the 13th, I just couldn’t let that one stick for too long.

    Whew. Feeling better now.

    (Which is code in horror films for: And now the guy with the hockey mask is there when you turn around!!!)

    1. Of course not! You were merely seeing to your health, so it was the responsible thing to do. It’s good for you! (*snicker* I said “good for you.”)

  5. What a valuable and important post. Thank you for sharing with us today, Linda. I’m going to watch this daily as a reminder of both the important message and your thoughtfulness.

    1. Precisely! Which is why we owe it to ourselves to let these guys remind us to do our self-checks every single month. Maybe even several times a month. πŸ˜‰

  6. Is it just me, or is it hot in here? Gotta say, that was the hottest PSA I ever saw. As for horror films, I liked some of the old cheesy ones, (Like “The Blob” or “I Was a Teenage Werewolf”) but don’t have any interest in seeing a bunch of people hacking other people up just to see the blood and gore fly. yuk

    1. LOL! No, I’d say it’s definitely a little on the warm side. πŸ˜‰

      And, yeah, there’s something almost innocent and endearing about those old horror flicks, especially compared to today’s ultra-realistic gore flingers.

  7. I’ve seen that PSA with the hot dudes a *cough* few times. Just for educational purposes. Genius marketing! I’ve seen a few FT13 movies. Meh, kinda boring. Thanks for the check reminder. Long live the ta-tas!

  8. Love the PSA. Not at all what I was expecting. But Dolly seems to be everywhere these days with that new movie…..

    I was a Friday the 13th junkie. The kids climbed in to bed with me this morning around 6:45 (I know, I’m lucky they slept that late) all worried about today’s date. I told them when they were 13 we could watch those together. In order. Fun times.
