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

It's time for an in your face DISGRACE : Yes, because hiding under a newspaper will save you from an atomic bomb.

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

Becca Berglie : My history teacher showed this to us and now he randomly tells us to duck and cover

urinmand : You guys ready for Fallout 4?

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

TopFurret : Now thanks to ducking and covering you'll only get 2.9 degree burns instead of third degree burns!

Ray Liu : This is absolutely chilling...

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

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.

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

Gonkz : Burt is probably so careful because there are FUCKING KAMIKAZE MONKEYS

Exaturate : War, war never changes.

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.

Darkness Serpent : instructions not clear, ended up on the roof

Patrick Roach : I want an atomic bomb proof newspaper!

Tom Buhr : amazing, guess I'm safe now

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.

hereonly2comment : Every time I see a bright flash I run to a wall and stop everything thing I am doing, accidentally bang my head, and duck and cover.

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

yourcatrex : Propaganda at its finest!

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

NonSequitur : atom ant anyone? lol. But if I saw this during school back then, I would shit myself.

PlasmaCoolantLeak : 7:57 Yep, a newspaper can save you from a bad burn from the detonation...but not so much from the second and third degree burns it will produce when it ignites from the heat from the flash.

Austin B : 3:55 "That signal means to put your head between your knees and kiss your ass goodbye!"

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

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

Armin Arlert : 6:47 Why smash your face into the bricks when you're already gonna die?

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.

sanfran dartgun : 4:03 Gotta love how casual they're walking when there's a fucking nuclear threat. xD

Raviolist : Yes. A newspaper will help you from a nuclear explosion, because they totally are not flammable.

Crystal Jackson : who would have thought this would be relevant in 2017 🙄😡
