A pair of galactically odd child-abuse PSAs

These new PSAs for child-abuse awareness group Childhelp are truly odd. They somehow manage to be both alarmist and campy at the same time. I guess that's what happens when you hire Casper Van Dien from Starship Troopers, dress him up in his battle armor, and have him refer to child abusers as "the nastiest creatures in the entire galaxy." Oscar-winning visual effects gurus Robert Skotak and Dennis Skotak apparently worked on the ads, along with Starship Troopers 3 director John Murlowski. They probably won't be adding to their trophy collections here.
