Sorry for my first aggressive comments. This absolutely a different from the rest of so-so TVCs in Vietnam. Quite impressive and strong visual. But I'm still think it too literal, honestly, I prefer something lateral and subtle.

What horror! It really makes you motivated to do something about the issue like right away.

No, I just sa, I can't bw a coffin maker and two people going there with no helmet. I knew the hole thing going on... plust the acting of the man making the coffins that was like " oh! who's this crazy man I can believe it... how crazy he is..." But that just how it was for me, if you prefer to think I saw a title and I figured it out, it's your choice. For me remains an easy idea.

Hey little boys from Ogilvy Vietnam. Do you have any Vietnamese insight to do this ad ? Your ad is based on untruth, this could make Vietnamese angry. And the expat guys, you're not sent here to get awards, you sent here to work for us.

A big hit for Todd McCracken, but a big shame for Ogilvy Vietnam and AIP dudes.

I loved it.
My only minor nitpick would be the line at the end, it seemed somewhat wordy, maybe it could've been better, but still, great idea and very well executed.

We all know that helmet saves lives, but not wearing a helmet is not really the issue to many motorcycle accidents. Come on people! Especially the one who thought about this concept. Watch the street of Vietnam and learn how many people disregard the traffic rules & traffic lights, and disrespect fellow bikers on the street. Texting , or using cellphone while driving, driving with one hand, driving while smoking, driving on the opposite lane, and etc. Don't you think these kind of problem must be addressed first? Using helmet is just a band-aid or plaster to a real problem in Vietnam street. You are not targeting the real issue. Wake up!!!

if so, the only way to protect your child seems to let it wear a DAMN HELMET. what's wrong with you guys?
