Now that's a great commercial!
I couldn't take my eyes off the video. Why isn't that our commercials (in the US/Canada) can't be as hard-hitting as those?
Good grief. That was bloody horrible. I'm a little shellshocked.
Aww, how sweet…
GOD. Was that really necessary? Seriously. What if we're eating while we watch that? What if we're eating and watching it in the car while we're driving? Remind me not to sit on any walls from now on.
The fast the speed, the greater the mess.
It is great isn't it Sir Jorge, hits home everytime it shows up on the telly.
Christine, RTE and NI telly has been showing these style of adverts for a while. Don't really know if they are having any effect, but I suppose that even the tiniest is a good thing.
Quixotic, reasonable response I think.
Kelly, you have a strange definition of sweet :)
"What if weâ€™re eating and watching it in the car while weâ€™re driving?"
Genius Kelly. Just genius. You could sue RTE – I crashed my car because I was watching your ad while driving. Brilliant.
who sings the song?
The song was written specially for the ad campaign, according to the Belfast Telegraph. If you really want to know more about it, you could always ask Lyle Bailie International, the ad company.
Although that's kind of missing the point of the ad. "Oh look, people die cause of speeding, I think I'll slow… oooooh, song pretty!!"
It reminds me a little of Damien Rice. Although that may be because he has that section in one of his songs where is sings "can't take my eyes off you" over and over again.
ladz who sings that song iv been tryin to find it evrywhere nd i cant nd itz stuk in mi hed!savage song tho.
The video NOT show the velocimeter (Mph) , but the
tachometers (RPM-Rev per min) raises very fast, that means he must be
in certain Gear: 3, approx 50mph…… IS IT "VERY" FAST ?
speed isn't the number one factor in that crash
Its the person on the wheels,from the video its clear its driver error.
If the speed was the case then all cars would be capped at 55mph :S
dont bother to me, is the trailer from TheFast&theFurious4:penis operation?
1st guilty: the owner of the dog,to leave him loose near the road.(i think:is the creepy old man with a black hat in the back of the girl,the Reverend Henry Kane from Poltergeits(sec18=dogtail)
2nd:The corky face who drive the gray car with plate ECZ3067,because the moron must restrain and not to turn to the left.
3rd:engineers of the Blue car because the air bags dont work
4th:The surgeons for medic negligence
Red car Driver: colin Mc rae
Gray car Driver : Corky(life goes on)
Oldman: Reverendo Henry Kane(Poltergeist)
Girl: Victoria Adams de Beckham (spice girl)
Wallet robber: Tio Lucas(Addams Family)
Fireman touching tits: Kurt Rusell
Policeman: inspector Clouseau
Psycho surgeon:Doogie Howser, M.D
litle child with her mom (The Others)
On some roads 50 mph is too fast Jose. The whole point is that unexpected things can happen, if you are going to fast then you can't react.
This video is the best I have ever seen. Viewing this should be a requirement for Drivers Ed or speeding ticket class or DUI.
Does anyone know who sings or band that does "I can't keep my eyes off you"? We all need to slow down!!!!!!!!!
