This House Paint Was Supposed to Stop a Nuclear Bomb
Subscribe to Dark Footage: https://bit.ly/darkfootagePlaced far enough away to still remain standing after the explosion, the interiors and exteriors of three homes were exposed to a nuclear bomb blast in this short film "The House in the Middle." The movie was released in 1953 by the Federal Civil Defense Administration as a six-minute black and white cut. A second edit, in color, was released in 1954 by the National Clean Up – Paint Up– Fix Up Bureau. Recorded during the Upshot-Knothole Encore test on May 8, 1953, at the Nevada Test Site, it may be one of the most extreme product placements ever produced.
