Let GODZILLA Teach You How To Be A Better Dad In This Classic PSA

Teaching Your Hell Spawn To Blow Smoke Rings is Parenting Done Right

Godzilla and Father’s Day. Two seemingly unrelated things that, for whatever reason, become chummy when turned into a PSA for the National Fatherhood Initiative’s “Be A Good Dad” campaign.

Now, I don’t know the exact date when this weirdly oddball commercial first made its debut, but I do seem to remember that I was a kid when it aired and was severely confused by its very existence. Even more so when whoever lifted most the footage from the 1967 film Son of Godzilla paired it with the theme song from The Courtship of Eddie’s Father.

Of course, I can only guess that it made some kind of perfect sense to that person seeing that Japanese actress Miyoshi Umeki played Bill Bixby’s housekeeper Mrs. Livingston on the show…remember kids, anything Japanese = Godzilla.

Unnecessary racism is so sad…

PSA after the break.
