Embrace Life

Absolutely moving, huge concept and simple yet brilliant making, this online ad to enforce the use of seat belt while driving is one of the most wonderful things i've seen in the latest times, brought in by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership. The happy consequences of using it, instead of the usual rawness showing what happens if you don't, made my day.

Aditionally, and not as a part of the campaign but because some users created it, a Facebook group gathers people for the cause, Embrace life, trying to get the most people involved trying to get the video on tv.

Aside from the very powerful visual impact of this Public Service Announcement ( PSA ), the "second part" music is hauntingly beautiful. Where is this sound track available.

The creators of this PSA, in taking this totally unexpected approach to seat belt usage, have taken the campaign to a higher, more responsible and personal level.

This merits at least, an Emmy Award . Well Done
