The federal agency responsible for promoting the safety of consumer products has employed plenty of tactics over the years, from recalls to regulations to PSAs.
Now, the Consumer Product Safety Commission is trying a new — and catchier — approach: It’s released an album.
We’re Safety Now Haven’t We packs in six genre-spanning, safety-focused songs (seven if you count the one that also got a Spanglish version). There’s an EDM banger about wearing helmets, a K-pop number about firework safety, and even a reggaeton track about smoke alarms. The artists are officially anonymous, but more on that later.
I remember a few agencies trying to do the “pop song” thing, but realistically all I can remember are PSA advertising jingles like the theme song for Woodsy Owl.
“Right now it’s like living in some sort of sci-fi movie or horror film,” local resident Erin Bourinski wrote in a Facebook post. “Everywhere you look, there’s minks — running through the fields, standing in the roads, trying to find shelter in random houses.”
I wonder if the people who did this are thinking at all about the impact on local wildlife an horde of hungry predators will have. And they probably think it’s evil to let domestic cats roam.
Do people never learn?
I feel like it should be a negative score… like -13/10…
