    Yep, we'd all burn if we were made out of cardboard!
    I also seriously think a simple forest fire would turn a human family into ashes, unless they were cut out of a cardboard box.

    Yeah we would all catch on fire like that if we were immobile or made of paper

    Even the Ad Council's recent PSA with Smokey Bear, "Fuse," doesn't compare to the extreme terror-bone tickling of this one...

    this scared me as a child

    I agree with Blade On. You need a good combination of two to make a much more effective PSA.

    I like the way the music changes toward the end of this ad, at the point where Smokey Bear's image appears on screen. The ad has a nice, sinister feel to it, which I like in ads of this kind.

    Um....Did that family just spontaneously combust?

    I don't remember this one, and I'm glad. It really is creepy, seems like most PSA's from the 80's were.
