Embrace Life - always wear your seatbelt (video)


My grandma sent me this link; it's a commercial that is currently being played in the UK. I thought this was such a clever idea, and it's a beautifully-made clip.

The cool thing about it is this guy created this commercial because the issue was important to him. He didn't create it for a company. Further information: http://www.sussexsaferroads.gov.uk/l...making-of.html

Hope you all enjoy it.

Note: I am in no way promoting the use of seat belts. I just thought this was a cool commercial.

I'm glad the commercial had an impact on you. It's a great lesson to learn. Some of the best commercials I've ever seen are foreign.

I'll gladly argue with anyone about seatbelt safety. Then I will make them ride a long a few shifts with me till you see what an ejected patient looks like.
