Interrupting This Blog Is a Public Service

This weekend, I was reading about the CW's latest Black Lightning Boys and Girls Club public service announcement on ComicBook.com. Naturally, as webmaster of the Internet's premier Booster Gold fan site, I thought to myself, "Booster Gold could do that."

And he has.

It might seem weird to see Booster addressing AIDS awareness so bluntly in this 1993 PSA, but both entered the public awareness in the 80s and both have been largely misunderstood over time.

Booster wasn't the only hero spreading the word — the series of AIDS awareness ads featured appearances from heroes across the DC Universe, including both Hal Jordan and John Stewart reading from the same script — but only Booster Gold and his Justice League teammates Blue Beetle and Fire were so serious about the issue that they returned to it one year later A.D. ("After Doomsday").

Booster was man enough to learn his lesson so that you would, too. Knowing is half the battle.

Ego Booster

It's immature and lame and can be very NSFW, but I'm linking to Meme Generator's Ego Booster anyway, because I can't stop playing with it. So sue me.

To balance my kharma, Boosterrific has been updated to include the 1992-93 DC Comics AIDS PSAs. Thanks to Shawn Baston to pointing out this hole in Boosterrific's comprehensive Booster coverage, and thanks to PoliteDissent.com for pointing out the variations.
