    WOW!! This is something else!!

    This needs to passed around to every human being who has the keys to a
    vehicle and the capability of driving while under the influence with
    impaired judgment and the possibility of causing a life changing incident to
    happen to everyone he or she comes in contact with while in this condition.

    This is perhaps one of the most intense commercials that I've ever seen and
    it's well made. I hope that by passing this along to others, that it will
    make a difference and if just one life is saved, it will all be worth the
    effort to simply hit "send" and maybe save a life today or tomorrow or in
    the future.. I think that Australia should be complemented on having the
    guts to "tell it like it is" and get this campaign out to all of it ' s
    licensed drivers and to air it on TV...it is very moving and very lifelike
    so it has a very strong impact.


    Extremely Graphic Content. Not for Anyone Easily Shaken!

    when I took drivers ed. they made us watch "mechanized death"...a compilation of highway patrol/state police footage of accidents scenes.....it shook me then, this shakes me now, I think of my kids.



    ( inho the music detracts from the message, silence delivers an even grimmer message, no knock intended on you Intense... )

    Excellent commercial. I wish it could be shown often on our tvs here in the states. The best friend I ever had was killed by a drunk driver so DUI is a sore subject with me.

    It is for me too. I don't need a tv ad to tell me what it's like. Personally, I think anyone convicted of a DUI - irrespective of whether they've harmed another person - should go to jail for a very long time.
