An EXTREMELY bizarre anti-hate Public Service Announcement that aired in December 1982. This scared children. Don't believe me, then take a look.

    Whoever posted this, would you mind sharing where you managed to find it? I would like to try to find the other version as well.

    I agree that this seems tame compared tp the one from @1974 that scared the crap out of me. Why (in this day and age of instant information) can't anyone find the original??!??

    Yes, please post if someone finds it. I think I remember both verions.

    I am not so sure this is the same psa as seen in 1974. I remember the person being much different looking, much shorter.I think it must have been redone in 82.

    I remember a song:
    Hate, an acid that corrodes...a little man walking closer and closer and then finally exploding with hatred. It was unforgettable.

    I remember this with a much deeper and haunting voice, speaking... not singing. But, this is the video I remember seeing late at night one night. Scared the cheese right out of me!

    I don't know what to make of this. It looks like someone crappily put this together in 10 minutes.

    I also remember seeing this in the 70s as a little kid and it unsettled me as much as anything I'd seen up to that point. I remember it being quite a bit longer, and ending with the guy's head exploding. This version seems to be truncated/edited.

    I think this is older than 1982. I remember this ad from the mid 1970s and it used to scare the shit out of me.

    I kinda remember it differently though - I thought there was a background or something.

    It WAS in the mid 70s, and it was narrated, not sung. The guy had a really really deep and haunting voice, and he said very loudly at the end, "Hate hurts YOU!"

    Right, that's my recollection as well. The original '70s version was longer and the guy was, well, "rapping," I guess. He was speaking in rhythm. And he had a much deeper voice. The "you" in "hate hurts you" almost sounded like a ghost "boo"! The original version was creepy as hell, and probably 30 seconds long.

    Right, I remember that deep voice.

    Wait what dafuq? To be honest I didn't find this scary (but I can see that this could scare some kids,) I mostly found it kinda confusing.
