Dangerous Minds recently dug up this retro PSA from 1977 that completely takes the fun out of Halloween. In the safety video, the narrator explains how everything about Halloween is dangerous, and you should just do the opposite.

Some of the safety precautions include:


  • Cut larger eye holes in your mask so you can see better. (Ruin your costume.)
  • Wear brighter colored costumes, as to not get hit by cars. (Or just stay out of the street.)
  • Be sure your costume won’t catch on fire!
  • Eat food before you go out, so you’re not tempted to eat your candy before having it examined!
  • Always walk!


Check out the video below, and let us know your thoughts.
