Pictures of You

I just cried. I am watching the Gruen Transfer and for those who haven't seen it, it is a great new show about advertising on the only channel not allowed to sell advertising space. They have just showed an ad campaign that ran in Victoria. When they released it, the Victorian government bought the space in primetime across all the channels, and played this full edit, effectively causing everyone watching TV at that time to see it. If this doesn't get the message across I don't know what will. Beats shock tactics for me every time.

I am never speeding again.

Oh Pip. Me too. I saw it. It is so real and so true. I'm so lucky to have never been touched but this kind of tragedy, but this makes you feel an eighth of what i can only imagine it must be like and that is enough to make me feel so filled with loss and grief.

I cried too. Most effective ad ever, way more than the grusome ones I always hide my face from.

I agree Miss k. Those ads make me sick and I change the channel (just like the smoking and skin cancer ones)
