Casper Van Dien, best known to scifi geeks as "Johnny Rico" from Starship Troopers, has filmed two short PSAs for Childhelp, an anti-child-abuse organization. The weird part is that Van Dien does them in character.
I'm all for celebrity PSAs that aren't prompted by plea agreements that require public service, and some of them can even be effective. But I'm not sure that using Casper Van Dien and the costumes/sets from what is, at best, a fringe-y SciFi movie that he is promoting is helpful to the cause of eliminating child abuse. I guess free publicity is free publicity, but I don't know what these ads are intended promote other than the existence of the organization or the movie franchise, such as it is, but it does feel a little exploitative to promote a movie franchise in the guise of ending child abuse.
