Smurfs: UNICEF succeeds where Gargamel fails

Bringing whole new meaning to "Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?!?", UNICEF's latest campaign to draw attention to the plight of ex-child soldiers in Africa is a little, uh, unusual. Apparently they believe that depicting the destruction of beloved childhood memories is an effective way to raise money.

Next up, how the beating death of ALF can help raise AIDS awareness.

Garrett Update: here's a clip.

Of course, Smurfette shouldn't be popping out all of those babies anyway - isn't it her fault that she can't feed her kid and decides to live in a war-torn area? She should stop sleeping around and try to get a job. Lazy smurfs.

I'm a big fan of ALF, as i'm sure everybody else is...

but I'd beat him with a sack of nickels for a cause such as that.

He is, after all, just a puppet.

and a kinda creepy one at that.

Damn you, St. Joe's, for blocking the site that hosts the clip.

I'm forced to draw the conclusion that the hospital is against helping save ex-child soldiers in Africa.
