Safe Happens

This commercial stopped me in my tracks the other night. It's the first time in a long time I can remember a commercial that really got my attention without using humour. When the guy said "Holy...", that's exactly what I was thinking.

Good nevertheless. I love the fact that the 'beautyshot of the car at the end is the smashed one. Them dudes at Crispin Porter + Bogusky is smart peoples.

Now that you're in the mood... Here's some ones for drinking and driving done a while ago by DDB Canada using basically the same concept (albeit much more graphic).
