Vader on street crossing safety. (The Green Cross Code)

Here is David Prowse, the “body” of Darth Vader from the original trilogy, letting this little “dumbo” know that if he doesn’t cross properly he’s in for one hell of a force choking. The whole Green Cross Code was big stuff in England from the 70s all the way up to the 90s. Plenty of celebrities (and sorta-celebrities) lent their fame to trying to keep British kids from getting run over. Here’s a list of a few with links to their laughably awful PSAs:

Alvin Stardust (PSA)

Les Gray (PSA)

Joe Bugner (PSA)

Kevin Keegan (PSA)

John Pertwee (PSA…SPLINK!)

Dad’s Army (PSA)

and of course, this wonderful updated 90’s version.
