Tonight's APTN (Aboriginal People's Television Network) "Friday Night Flick" was the 2002 movie Insomnia starring Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank.
It was a great show, interspersed with campy commentary from APTN program hosts Chantelle and (dog puppet) Kernel before every commercial break. However, the moral lesson they pushed during the final part of the movie was certainly strange:
"Be good, because someone is always watching!"
Really, this dialogue was repeated (with a serious and sincere tone) several times during the video clips of Chantelle and Kernel discussing the most dramatic events of the movie. Example:
Chantelle: "So what did you learn from watching that, Kernel?"Am I missing something? Because I find it hard to believe anyone would send such an wrong message to their television viewers.
Kernel: "Be good, because someone is always watching!"
Or is there some esoteric aboriginal irony I'm not getting here?
