EEERIE SPOOKY SHOTS OF AN EMPTY PLAYGROUND
Soon you will be running, running free.
Voiceover: Some bullshit about getting through this, over images of painting indoors.
Fuck off, Persil.
Screening shots of an empty playground in between kids programmes in the morning, especially slotted between the usual saccharine kids adverts, is totally tone deaf. And unnecessarily creates a scary atmosphere that kids are gonna find confusing.
(Mine defo noticed, and asked “What’s that?” - what can I say, other than “A playground” or “Dunno”, to a 3yo who hasn’t had a corona-briefing and seems generally content but then sees this and wonders why spooky out-of-context things are popping up in the middle of fun telly stuff?)
