Here’s How to Scare A Movie Theater Full Of People Into Not Texting and Driving

Driving and texting is now one of the leading causes of auto accidents.  We all know it’s dangerous but how do you get that point across?  A major car company recently did a pretty amazing job of doing just that.

Here’s a pretty brilliant way to get people to stop texting and driving.  Volkswagen played a new ad before the previews at a movie theater in Hong Kong recently.  The first 10 seconds were of a car driving down a road, from the driver’s point of view.

Then they sent a text message to everyone in the theater at the exact same time.  And when people looked down to check their phone, the car CRASHED.  Then a message about texting and driving popped up on the screen.  Even watching this on my little computer screen made a pretty big impact.

 

Make sure your kids see this.
