A Freedom Lost
It’s a great speech, though somewhat undermined by the fact that you’re dead for part of the first second after impact.
I do like this commercial for seatbelts:
I remember my father describing to me a commercial about life jackets. It involved a couple of kids sitting on a boatzoomed-in like, holding each other and looking scared. The camera pans out, and you see that they are alone on a boat and their father is floating dead in the water. The argument being “if not for yourself, then for your children.”
It’s a pretty solid concept. One of the effects that fatherhood has had on me is a greater degree of safety-consciousness. Which is kind of a weird way to look at it, but it sort of feels like I don’t have the right to die stupidly, as much as I used to.
Updated: Some people are having trouble seeing the videos. So I included links to their presence on YouTube. Below each video.
