Johnny Rico, lead character in the hit movie Starship Troopers
, is suiting up once again
to fight back against the evils of the galaxy. Hollywood actor Casper Van Dien has reprised the combat savvy character for Childhelp
to talk about fighting a different war – the war against child abuse
(via Ain't It Cool News, embarrassingly enough.)
Though the PSAs were produced with no doubt entirely noble intentions, one cannot help but consider the parallels between these and the propaganda films
and recruitment shorts
peppered throughout Starship Troopers
, as both are warning against a shadowy, largely unseen threat (and, needless to say, fashioned after fascist propaganda shorts of the past).
