The Smurfs Get Bombed

[Media: Video]

This Smurf video has been around for a while but I didn't posted it because I didn't find a a working one until now. UNICEF made this video of the Smurfs to talk about the effect of war on children, and to blow up the damned Smurfs.

The short film pulls no punches. It opens with the Smurfs dancing, hand-in-hand, around a campfire and singing the Smurf song. Bluebirds flutter past and rabbits gambol around their familiar village of mushroom- shaped houses until, without warning, bombs begin to rain from the sky.
