Be Very Afraid! (A GIF about texting while driving)
The advice (or to some people, a persistent warning): Do not text while driving!, is taken to a different level with this GIF.
Yup, Honda has done it again. In the past they have come up with advertisements or Public Service Announcements that have captured the attention of consumers, but this simple PSA has driven the nail, deeper than expected, into the heads (and into the hearts of the general public.) To a friend, at least, it has pushed her to admit–not in a casual tone, but, with a dead-serious look on her face–that she would never text again if she’s behind the steering wheel.
Here, judge it for yourself. How does this short GIF affect you…

The GIF does not contain bloody scenes with victims suffering from deadly wounds or fractures. Heck, it does not even show any totaled cars. But, mind you, it has scared the hell out of the consciousness of many drivers who used to text and drive.
Honda’s ad went live in April as a contribution to Distracted Driving Awareness Month: a National Safety Council’s campaign against the use of mobile phone while driving.
You can watch the video version of the ad here.
