One of those insipid sci-fi cautionary tales about new technology and not playing god (ie. things like "Frankenstein", "Jurassic Park", "Event Horizon", "The Lazarus Effect", "Forbidden Planet", and any movie where a sentient AI computer takes control of the world's nukes), except about some already existing and well established and more-or-less uncontroversial technology (such as air travel, or blood transfusions, or motion pictures) that everyone already knows to have no such issues, but which is presented as having serious and omnipervasive moral and safety issues of a highly dubious nature. A recipient of a blood transfusion might start exhibiting all of the donor's negative personality traits for example, or an airplane might somehow leave the atmosphere and drift off helplessly into space, or somethong like that.

While yours would be different because it's intentional, the best example I'm aware of of this being *unintentional* is Alrune, a German movie from the 30s about how children conceived via in-vitro fertilization are evil sadistic sluts because they don't have souls.

It was me, like two years ago, being annoyed by people posting snickers ads and pretending they're funny.
