It should be the other way around. The worst tailgaters are always the truckers, and they actually kill people every year doing it because they can't slow down as fast as a car can, and they run people over. If the car hits the back end of a semi, the car driver still dies... so what's the deal with this silly ad?

Another great piece from OOH.. OOH may not be as sexy and glamorous as TV writing, but the medium allows infinite executions.

the earlier bill boards were pretty ok. not all the that impressive, seemed like just another ad.

this one seem to have struck the chord. a definite attention grabber.

what's so creative about a literal translation of an accident? i'm sure the tax payers in colorado are ecstatic that this agency was able to talk about car accidents by showing a car accident.

It's a billboard! Billboard have to be simple as possible with a quick attention grabber. You know why? you're attention span on billboards is a very small when driving.

If i was driving down the road, this would grab my eye a lot more effectively than any other straight foreword product advertising billboard.

This I guess was meant for an instant REMINDER while driving down. And thus I feel the execution is effective in terms of disseminating the core essence.

Besides, if a car that little would've hit THAT truck, it wouldnt have had wrinkled up that way, not in a million years. The car, for sure would've ended up total wreck. The truck would have been spotless! So...

Now that is too close. Whatever, for a good reason and for a bit different reason (tailgating) it's okay I guess.
