This blog is just writing itself tonight... and I'm not making it up! CNN reports:
Out of an idyllic blue sky dotted with birds and butterflies come warplanes that carpet-bomb the Smurfs' forest village, killing Smurfette, leaving Baby Smurf wailing in distress and sending Papa Smurf and the others bolting for cover.
The scene from a bizarre commercial featuring Belgium's lovable blue-skinned cartoon characters is so upsetting it can only be shown after 9 p.m. to avoid scaring children.
Smurfette is killed and the others go running. Baby Smurf sits crying at the edge of a bomb crater.
It seems like a strange approach for a very worthy cause.
