Charley says: Scream if you have the wrong pram

Posted on October 22, 2013 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

To some extent, these public information films we've been looking at were works of art. Small wonder then that the occasional one would draw on actual works of art for inspiration*.

To warn mothers (only mothers pushed prams in the 70s) about the risks inherent in overbalancing prams, this public information film uses Munch's 'The Scream' to fill its viewers with horrors. I'm not entirely sure it works, but it's a nice try.

* Yes, I'm aware that was probably the clunkiest intro to any article ever. Sue me

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.
