There’s nothing funny about Reye’s syndrome. Actually, I didn’t know what it was until I Goggled it a few minutes ago. Any disease article on Wikipedia that ends ‘Stage Five: Death’ is not a good one. That being said, there is something funny about this unbelievably cheesy PSA starring some unnamed, generic rock n roll star with a bad perm and even worse shirt — even by 80s standards — taking time out from his cable access show to warn his unsuspecting viewers about the dangers of taking aspirin with the flu. The whole production just seems sad; like the fine folks at the Food and Drug Administration couldn’t get a real celebrity to take up their cause, so they just made one up. The family isn’t sure how to take the news. Sort of solemn indifference. While he was at it, our bargain basement rocker should’ve warned that punk kid about the dangers of not using a coaster.
