|Young People Against Heavy Metal T-shirts|
This program is a parody, listen to it before you complain
Young People Against Heavy Metal T-shirts (YPAHMTS) is a grass roots organization determined to fight the perception of young people's moral decline as epitomized by Heavy Metal T-shirts...Or is it? In 1992, Matthew Thompson decided it was time to fight back. He aimed to give the media a different image of youth, one that was disciplined, ordered and strong. From a single letter to a tabloid newsletter, YPAHMTS was born. However, when YPAHMPTS developed into a media juggernaut that threatened to run him over, Matthew discovered how difficult it could be to argue a sophisticated message in an era of sound bites.
Young People Against Heavy Metal T-Shirts was produced by Lea Redfern of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The program originally aired as part of the international documentary exchange series, crossing boundaries.
This association of schools, communities and organizations promote character education for today's youth based on trust, respect, responsibility, fairness, care and citizenship.
