Disturbing TV Commercial Uses Cover of This Rock Classic [VIDEO]
A bizarre PSA commercial for road safety in Northern Ireland is drawing attention (and maybe criticism) for it’s very blunt and graphic nature. The spot is considered so disturbing to some that it’s been banned from airing on North Irish television anytime before 9pm.
The commercial was developed by the Department of Environment to show the potentially tragic consequences of speeding. Road Safety Minister Mark H Durkan told the Belfast Telegraph.”It is a particularly sensitive and compelling message”
Judge for yourself. Does it get a strong message across, or is it a little too much?
Yeah, not sure how Axl Rose is going to feel having a cover of one of his old songs being used to show a bunch of children being crushed. Hmm…Okay, if that’s too much then here’s a more light hearted version of Sweet Child O’ Mine that we can all sing along to.
