Saberspark : 2:14 So THAT is where ManSlayer got his audio sample

TJ Hastie : So yeah kids the bomb can flatten entire buildings instantly but don't worry you'll be safe under your desk

Gran's Stuff : 3:07 You cover the back of your neck with your face.

Chris Alvarez : RIP innocent Citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

the Moon : 4:14   *hears horrifying siren signalling atomic bomb*  *walks inside casually*

BlueTeamPlayer : 7:45 THANK GOD we brought a table cloth with us!!

ulluubloo : Whats worse than a sunburn? A bad sunburn. Whats worse than a bad sunburn? The atom bomb. Whats worse than the atom bomb? A worse sunburn.

Colin G : Sixty years ago the threat of nuclear warfare was a distinct possiblity. *We educated our children on what to do when they see the flash of a nuclear bomb*. Let that sink in. Now, sixty years later, we see this video and think of it as a joke. Our kids see this as a cool tie-in to a video game.

CZsWorld : Directed by Anthony Rizzo? Maybe it should be called "Crowd the Plate" instead of "Duck and Cover".

Jayla Hollie : I like how they say sunburn instead of incineration

Uncreative Username : Yes, because hiding under a newspaper will save you from an atomic bomb.

first last : saw this air during the burps

TheSentientToast 1 : There's a reference to this in Fallout 3.

Spyro The Gerudo : he will come back this year when Trump becomes president

Bring Me More Booze : Rick and Morty brought me here for some fucking reason.

Gavin Hundley : Remember kids, when u hear the alarm, lightly jog to a near by house or school that could easily be destroyed if a bomb went off.

Inspector Nigel : Turtle= Capitalist Monkey= Communist

Driftadc : We watched this in history class and everyone was dying laughing... Even the teacher And the principal

cjeam : Watching this in preparation for the upcoming US election...

Oxidize : Now we have to learn this again

wulfe Argent : Newspapers, the perfect protection against nuclear explosions!

Kpop Maniac : i had to watch this in history :D

kernel w : fallout 4 confirmed

Luis Ogushi : Because cotton and paper can protect you against winds that can destroy buildings and temperatures that can melt steel.

Robert Matthews : you can almost tell that the narrator is trying to give the kids hope even though he knows once you here the sirens or see a flash its already too late

Samuel Rocha García : This kind of videos make me sad. To think that children were seeing this in times of war.

Dan Wepp : This message is brought to u in part by Vault Tec, prepare for the future!

Muhgateny : So this is where MANSL4Y3R got his audio from...

Nathan Dance : if only the Japanese had hidden their cities under a huge blanket or newspaper, so many deaths could have been prevented.

Friend_Zone : Lmao these peasants don't even have Vault entry clearance.

Larry : Of course there was no mention of fallout. I am sure the civil defense would recommend a broom and dustpan to sweep those radioactive particles away.

chicanochrist : I actually watched this when I was in High School, but first learned of the technique in Elementary School. The fact that this was a normal thing during the Cold War, is disturbing in retrospect.

Dan Bolivar : I came here thanks to Fallout 4.. ;)

Dauge Yo : "We must get ready for any other dangers around us" *focuses on black kid*

Dan Skelton : 3:06 "And very tightly, you cover the back of your neck." So she covers her head.

Destructerator : Isn't this primarily to comfort people? The flash and initial blast of gamma rays come before there is any shockwave or boom. The flash is the burn, there's no time to react.

Ashley Sinkel : For the comments that are mocking the information in this film, such as the use of newspaper as protection, I wish to inform you that the government most likely knew that if the United States was attacked by an atomic bomb, most of these people would die. The purpose of the easy to remember "Duck and Cover" is to show that the government is trying to seem as if they are providing protection the country's people by having a plan. If the government did not supply something like this, chaos would erupt and people would feel vulnerable and unprotected, thus turning against the government and living in fear. Even if saying that a piece of newspaper can provide a form of protection, people have faith that they can survive and trust that the government will provide safety which was crucial during this time period.

Oliver Pheonix : Who knew this would be so relevant in 2018?

ScottaHemi : ah the 50's a simpler time where hiding under a piece of wood can save you from a nuke XD

LGTheOneFreeMan : 288 Hawaiians didn't find this video very entertaining.

Janet McLeod : Time to dust this one off again, America.

April Jones : Did everyone just go crazy after world war 2? WHAT WAS EVERYONE THINKING?!?!?!

shaun griffin : I'd rather be killed in the blast rather then surviving and die a slow and painful death due to radiation poisoning.

Tom Buhr : amazing, guess I'm safe now

eng3d : The worst part is that the old government at least tried to protects you. The "modern" governments disactivated the sirens decades ago.

Denz : remember what to do friends, ignore the turtle and get ready to die

badreligion1231 : It's amazing the human race has survived this long .

LeTtRrZ : Man, the fear at this time must have been real. They forgot to mention one thing: if a pressure wave is coming, you should be yawning when it hits. If you do, the pressure inside and outside your eardrums would equalize. If you don't, your eardrums would get blown out. I suppose it wouldn't matter though, since anyone in that area would die of radiation poisoning anyway.

bobbyknightmare : Because somewhere out there is a monkey hanging from a tree holding a firecracker with YOUR name on it!

Catzilla : "Now we've all been to the doctor to get our chest x-rayed, right? Well, a nuclear bomb is just like that, but it's as if the doctor had to do the x-ray over . . . and over . . . and over."
