Wow. Want to see a perfect example of what can go horribly wrong with celebrity public service announcements?

Since it started last week, we’ve been profiling the new campaign “Burma Can’t Wait“, which features 30 days of celebrity PSAs urging people to support political change in the country and get involved. We’ve seen some funny and light-hearted messages from actors and actresses like Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell, Jorja Fox, and Woody Harrelson — but none of them have come across as completely insulting and scripted as this one from the Kardashian family.

As Dlisted points out, even some of the comments on Kim’s site have been scathing. Take this one,

Can we get some more hilarious video’s about say 9\11 or other tragic circumstances? I can’t wait until you hit 30 and no one cares about you anymore.”

Oh snap.

Check out the horror below:

    She couldn’t even pronounce half of the words in the spot! I know that some people find Kim Kardashian entertaining, but I think I’d rather watch paint dry. She should’ve just worn a sign that says “I have no idea what this cause is about, but I’m doing this anyway for the publicity”.

    I have no idea who those girls are (I’m English and live in Italy) but I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be avoiding anything to do with them in the future. That was truly cringe-worthy.

    what’s the problem with this video? they are clearly poking fun at themselves – and humor engages people who might not otherwise connect with the message.

    Jennae, I too thought people must find them entertaining (they’re on tv right?) but i’ve yet to ever meet one soul who likes any of them.

    such an embarrassment to the US (right up there with George W)

    A little harsh aren’t we? At least they are trying to make an effort.
