Tube of the Day...Petrified Man Syndrome

Here it is, the moment you have all been waiting for... Tube Of The Day! It gives me great pleasure to share this with you all. This clip is a 1950's imitation of government educational propaganda.

The film is about the horrors of pre menstrual syndrome aka Prehistoric Monster Syndrome. We all know what PMS is right? Well the film depicts the perceived darker side of the mystery that is women.

Men fear this time every month, which is amplified by the exaggerated violence. The music, which accompanies the video, is the overplayed doom and gloom sort that you would see in the old black and whites.

The crazed female decapitates her beloved because her sensibilities were not suitably appeased. This short piece is well constructed and very popular at this point in time.

I can’t help but think that the male population will appreciate this heartily, and nod, groan and shake their heads in agreement of their united suffering at the hands of WOMAN

I did find this video entertaining, but had to ask whether the whole thing was a little to insensitive, well you know, it is that time… check your calendar!
