What The Apocalypse Looked Like in 1986

I was over at Business Insider, wasting time, and stumbled across this great video.  The story - which was about commercials Ridley Scott made - said:
This ad's political content was considered so controversial at the time that the big three TV networks refused to air it.

Remember the good old days when a national debt of $2 Trillion seemed apocalyptic? Now we almost borrow that in a year.  As Bugs Bunny says, "My stars..."

(In case you don't recognize the name, Ridley Scott was the director of the first Alien, and has a movie coming out this weekend called Prometheus.  He has a talent for dark, scary, sci-fi.)
