Well, it is sad, but it seems that seeing tiny little cartoons killed by war, has more of an effect on us now than actually hearing about real children dying in war. Unicef has released a video of Smurfs being attacked where Smurfs (including Smurfette) die, ending with the Caption: Do not let war destroy the world of children. The goal of the video, created with the permission of the family of Smurf creator ‘Peyo’, was to raise awareness of children being forced into war in Africa. Read the full article at the Telegraph.

I haven’t been able to find the full video, but a QT video with stills of the Smurf ad is here.

BTW – did you know that the Smurf’s were Belgian??
