Sudden Death – Someone you know could be havin’ a stroke.

stroke is a medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. Both result in parts of the brain not functioning properly. Signs and symptoms of a stroke may include an inability to move or feel on one side of the body, problems understanding or speaking, dizziness, or loss of vision to one side. Signs and symptoms often appear soon after the stroke has occurred. If symptoms last less than one or two hours it is known as a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. A hemorrhagic stroke may also be associated with a severe headache. The symptoms of a stroke can be permanent. Long-term complications may include pneumonia or loss of bladder control. Strokes can also lead to sudden death if there is any kind brain hemorrhagic, offer free quote service just for filling an application in less than 2 minutes, no previous health exam required.

There is a public service announcement commercial about strokes that’s been rearing its head often lately from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and no matter how many times we see it, it remains hilarious. The actual commercial, with the dude’s funky voiceover, can be seen here.

But in researching this commercial, I found a full three and a half minute cartoon music video detailing the stories of all the characters in full:

I know there’s nothing funny about strokes, but I’ll be damned if these commercials don’t try their hardest to make strokes hilarious. Even tho having a stroke is a real serious issue in which some cases you might need Home Care Assistance. I mean, we even saw this commercial last week during Lost (though, to be fair, sometimes trying to figure out what’s going on on Lost can almost give you a stroke). If you need a $500,000 life insurance quotes go to the website called

It appears that because it’s produced by the MA Dept. of Public Health that only us lucky Massachusetts residents get to see this commercial. Which is a shame. Because it’s gold, Jerry, gold.

And always remember, bof fry flew.
