Wow... I didn't see that coming, in the sense that I wouldn't have realised what it was about without the text, however its probably one of the better public service ads I have ever seen. Any specific reason you were sharing this, Philipp?

No specific reason David, just felt it's very share worthy...

I prefer this a lot to the shock tactic they're currently using in the adverts in the UK.

Off topic Philipp, but do you really hate your job *that* much?
One upvote for your most popular submission, sir :)

It reminds me of the ads for Sky+HD in Ireland and the UK "True Colours"

And regarding the "Shock tactic" Mrrix32 speak about, I don't think they get much more shocking than this Irish road safety ad (Rebranded and shown in the UK also) "Always Expect The Unexpected"

The current ads being shown on our screen are actrually showing the effect your death would have on other people "Crashed Lives – Coroner"

Heh. No, that (referring to the Reddit post) was a strictly humorous and fictional submission (I quit my job in 2005 and love creating websites & projects as I do now!)
