New Short - "Read On! From Left to Right" Now Available

The "educational films" made by the lunatics at ACI Films have covered some dubious subjects: County fairs. "Doing words." And of course, making terrible crafts out of garbage. But still, we held out the faintest hope that when they tackled a legitimate subject like ‘reading’, they might reign in their insane tendencies and NOPE! That sure as hell did not happen!

Read On From Left To Right doubles down on the madness by throwing puppets into the mix. Just let that sink in for a second: an ACI short with puppets. Their names are Lem and Mel, and they make reading fun! And if you believe that, ACI has a fancy headdress to sell you.

The lesson of the short is basically, don’t try to read things backwards. Most teachers simply find it easiest just to tell their students that, without subjecting them to the mind-warping powers of ACI. But if you do choose to watch it, you’ll be treated to the trademark ACI cutaways, disembodied limbs, confused children, and puppets who loathe each other. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

This short is obviously racist against many eastern cultures.

Also, shouldn't children who can watch and understand this short ALREADY know to read from left to right?

There is another short, called, "Read From Top to Bottom, Right to Left" that is for the Eastern kids. Fortunately, Unfortunately, it's filled with tentacle Hentai, so it doesn't get a lot of air time here in the U.S.  (though it does with the American Anime Community...myself inexcluded, of course!)
