I think this is well done.
Really makes you think. I hope this message will get across to many many people.

Embedding for you.

Great idea for a safety advert. Very clever. Sadly it was done by a car company (VW), nothing against them at all but these sorts of clever advertising should be being done by your countries road authorities. In Australia we have this amazing road safety ad that hits me hard each time I watch it. No actors, these people are gone. Really hits home.

Nothing like driving the point across! Audience interaction is the best eye opener. Great public awareness campaign, who ever put that together was a genius. The only question I have, is how did they get the phones in the theater to ring? Unless the people are part of the entire ad.

Before It became illegal ... and very illegal... I would take a self made cellphone jammer into every movie I went into... those were great times.

Easy to make. And if you guys don't mind breaking the law ( a lot, now) you should do it.

Well, they say in the ad they used 'location awareness'. So, basically admitting to tracking these people down by the position there phone was reporting. A tad sinister personally I think, creepy even. But even though it's a great ad, I'd say it most certainly looks mostly staged. Although entirely possible, but only if those involved had location awareness turned on. Dodgy though... hmmm.

I love the message, but I do not love the way it was given quite as much.

I suppose I'm torn straight down the middle with it.

As with anything concerning safety one could always make the argument that the privacy aspect doesn't matter. Safety trumps all? I don't feel like it necessarily should. Giving up any privacy for things like this remind me of the days, weeks, and months following 911.

Again... I'm torn. I love the message and it was a new way to give it... But I do understand the concerns surrounding the whole thing.

This serves as a reminder, that apparently needs to be illustrated more often. That is because of witnessing this behavior when driving even though as it's common sense not to and is banned locally. While the video message is a effective method by cell phone call, 1) can't see every theater having the means unless donated to them by an outside source(such as VW here) to conduct it as such. Also that, if we as a people using technology don't monitor ourselves it leaves for invasive measures a free for all under the guise of protecting us.

Very clever. I must say though, the videos of people falling over things while texting and walking are very funny. I'm sure the youth of today will eventually develop hunches from staring down at their mobile phones all the time.

That many people left their ring tones on in a theatre? How rude!
