Run Smurf Run!!!

I don’t remember seeing this episode when I was a kid…

Smurfs used as shock treatment in UNICEF’s fundraising drive
(David Rennie, Daily Telegraph)

It opens with the Smurfs dancing, hand-in-hand, around a campfire and singing the Smurf song. Bluebirds flutter past and rabbits gambol around their familiar village of mushroom- shaped houses until, without warning, bombs begin to rain from the sky.Tiny Smurfs scatter and run in vain from the whistling bombs, before being felled by blast waves and fiery explosions. The final scene shows a scorched and tattered Baby Smurf sobbing inconsolably, surrounded by prone Smurfs.

(via Fark)

Of course, one day when the ice maker wasn’t working properly, we found out it was because there was a smurf caught in the crushing blades. So that is sort of similar I guess.
