    Opinions on this advertisement?

    This is an advertisement for Prevent It, a Canadian workplace injury awareness/prevention thing. The intentions are good, it illustrates clearly and very effectively how easy accidents can happen.

    ...BUT. It's aired during times when little kids are home and watching TV.
    My 7 year old nephew is having a lot of trouble sleeping over it =(

    What do you guys think, is it a bit too much for the timeslot it airs durring?

    It's short, just watch...kthx.

    Damn, yea that is a bit graphic. Though it does make it's point. I think they should reconsider when they show it and if they show the face after the dumping, that would make it more "friendly" to younger kids.

    It's graphic, but at least it's brief. I guess it wouldn't be as effective without it.



    I never add friend codes.

    Well.. the advertisement is almost comical without it. But, it's creepy with it. Opinion: Don't go with the heels over head trip in a serious commercial.. ever.


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.

    Mm, yeah I think it's time slot is pretty messed up. If they aired it at like 10pm - 6am, then that's fine. Or air it on a channel that children will most likely not turn to. That shit looks like it came right out of a Final Destination sequel.

    Well it's obviously aimed at adults with jobs, so, I don't know what is wrong with airing it later. But in the middle of the day, damn, way to traumatise the poor kid.
    I love you, Adam.

    Will kids who see this be afraid to get jobs that could be harmful in the future?
    (Almost every job?)

    I don't think little five year olds will be thinking about their future that deeply.
    I love you, Adam.
