  • Willie Mays Blasting Caps ad now viewable online!

    Say hey -

    Many of us who were kids in SF during the 60s remember the awesome public service announcement made by Willie Mays, exhorting us kids to avoid construction explosives (blasting caps). amazingly, it's been found after all these years, and here it is:

    Wow!!! What a great link. Thanks.

    Is it just me or is that one of the most surreal things you've ever seen? Don't get me wrong, it's good advice. It's just in an era where I'm used to seeing PSAs for drugs and domestic abuse, seeing Willie Mays talking about blasting caps seems very strange.

      I totally agree... don't remember hearing about a huge "blasting caps" issue going on during the 1960's. I would have been more expecting to hear "give a hoot, don't pollute!"

            Yeah, I was just five years old when Mays retired. :o
