This PSA Matter-Of-Factly Tells You What To Do With Your Dead After A Nuclear Attack
Now that there are a few decades between us and the Cold War, people forget that Americans once lived in constant fear of nuclear attack. Public service announcements (PSAs) were shown on televisions all over the country to address this concern, and some of them did so more dryly than others.
One particularly morbid PSA that was shown throughout the ’70s and ’80s taught people how to dispose of their loved ones’ bodies after nuclear attacks, and to keep the terrible vibes going, they enlisted the help of a creepily calm narrator.
It’s probably a good rule of thumb to keep dead bodies away from your living family members, but I guess that would’ve been difficult, since people would’ve been huddled in cramped shelters during nuclear attacks at that point.
