Another reason not to trust the 60s. Or turtles.
The spot above is a National Association of Broadcaster's announcement circa 1965.
People tend to despair about popular culture - handwringing and fingerpointing how we've gone to hell in a handbasket and lamenting that our fall from clean living has probably gone too far.
Life was better, back then...or was it?!!
Sweet Jiminy, just as I was being Zombified by the stoner singing "BINGO," I awoke to realize that a turtle shot the kid!
Oh well. It looks like he and the turtle made up...and the kid went on to learn that crime doesn't pay because of what he learned on television.
Good old days, my eye! Obviously drugs were not only plentiful, they were considered PRODUCTIVE.
