    New graphic UK commerical

    I, personally, am getting sick of these UK commercials to stop texting, wearing no seatbelt whilst driving or the whole railway crossings adverts. They keep getting more and more graphic, this one gave me goosebumps!

    Im sure that was banned in the uk? But they get worse because people dont listen. So the advert is like that to drum it into peoples head. Plus as the years go by the better software comes along to do such things.

    Btw yes it is not a nice clip.

    I saw it on Dave yesterday and managed to find it on YouTube too.

    "People don't listen" - I think people do, but it's not a call for these damned adverts to get more and more graphic.

    That was crazy! I got the goose bumps just watching that...Its scary because you may not even be the one texting yet your the one who loses your life because of someone else being stupid...Seeing that little baby made me definitely rethink about texting while driving because I have a 3 month old daughter and I would never want anything bad to happen to her! She is my everything and I cant lose her!

    Decades ago, the mirrors in the works 'cloak rooms' had stickers on asking:
    Have you had an accident today ?
    Have you caused an accident today ?

    Simple but effective, no graphics and as 'cheap as chips'.

    Love to see them introduced in the motorway services

    This is no worse than the videos they've been showing in Driving Schools across the US for decades. I applaud the production quality and the overall poignancy of the work.

    If a little fancy camera work, a good script and some ketchup result in less texting accidents, I'm all for this. Very realistic - strong work!

    Good!! Looks like this advert may have changed one persons mind. I still think any use of a cellphone without a hands free kit should lead to license revocation

    Not doubting the adverts work, but something a bit... less graphic would work?

    Keep in mind, this was shown at about 2pm yesterday - not late at night.

    if things less graphic worked, they wouldnt go to such extremes.

    Whoa, that is a pretty graphic commercial indeed. It is very true though but it still is pretty crazy..
