Darn it, you can always count on that little bastard Butch the Bully to do the wrong thing. At least that’s what we’ve gleaned from “Cool Cat Finds a Gun” and the other samples selected by Filmdrunk. And those were pretty much all we could take. Good advice for kids if they come across a gun? Sure. But you have to wonder at what point hiring D-list master thespians like Viveca Fox, Erik Estrada and Eric Roberts, combined with writing that wouldn’t pass muster for a Teletubbies episode begins to negate the desired lesson. Blech. [h/t Allen V.]

  1. I find it highly unlikely that some kids are playing with sticks in the backyard and just HAPPEN to find a revolver laying there. Sure, it’s possible. Wouldn’t it be easier to try and have some more likely avenues that kids are much more likely to come across?

  2. EASY on Eric Roberts! As Mickey Rourke pointed out, he really IS a fine actor, and since when is not being in favor with Hollywood bigwigs a BAD thing?

    He was very good in RUNAWAY TRAIN, a great picture with a Kurosawa script that could EASILY have been ruined by H’wood asshats, but wasn’t.

  3. More disturbing to me is that the ahole who put this together thought that the arriving cop should immediately get into attack mode with a 10 year old kid. Notice when encountering the kid he puts his hand on his gun in apparent “ready to draw” mode and command voice. The kid’s friend tenses up and you can tell he understands the situation. “the cop is going to kill you”. Great message for kids.

  4. *Whew* It’s a good thing this wasn’t McGruff the crime dog, or he might have been unloaded on when the cop arrived.

  5. Didn’t the NRA do this better with Eddie the Eagle back when Charlton Heston was knee high to a Pharoah?

  6. Y’know, I always treat kids as though they were small adults.

    They appreciate the respect, and return it. It works.

    This applies to driving, dating advice, firearm safety – everything.

  7. Lets change the scene a little like say south philly; “hey mofo look there’s a throw down”,” I wonder who’s punk ass got capped?” One kid picks it up and says “man I can get me some rock fo this” and the other kids says “F-u N%$$&A, I am gonna use that to do a drive by and hold up the liquor sto’.

  8. If you scroll a little past Vivica, the next videos are for Plaxico Buress. Even YouTube has a sense of irony….

  9. I posted this on the comments on YouTube:

    Y’all did this entirely wrong.

    1) Leave someone behind to watch the gun and prevent someone taking it.

    2) The dad should have confronted “Butch” and used Parental Authority to confiscate it.

    3) A cop should not have been needed unless the gun was an unknown element: not the man’s, and not anyone in the neighborhood’s. THEN you call the police and have them take the gun.

    Poor video. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.

  10. This is bad in just so many ways, and it is RACIST! How you may ask, first it is a white kid with blonde hair picking up the revolver. Need I say more?

  11. So they see a gun, go to find adults, see “Butch the Bully” pick it up and run off, and then forget about it for what appears to be at least a day. Did they figure Butch would take care of it and decide to not tell anyone? That’s they only way the following situation could have happened.

    Stupid all around and teaches kids to be ignorant. An educated kid would have picked up the revolver, safely cleared it, and taken it to their parents, instead we should teach our children to be helpless and have others do everything for them. That’s pretty consistent with the left-leaning lifestyle. I guess they want to teach ’em young.

  12. The Problem here is it teaches fear about firearms and not respect for firearms. You can teach your kids to do things in a calm manner.
