Embrace Life

This is the new "wear your seatbelt" ad the UK is doing - started by some dude not hired to do it, but because the cause is important to him, he came up with this idea, and now it's being hailed across the world as a 'beautiful' commercial. The video has become so popular with the general public that people are forwarding it to friends and family on their own so quickly that it has spread all over the world in a very short time.

  1. I saw this quite some time ago. Yes, it was beautifully done. Eloquent without speaking a single word.

    I've always worn my seat belt, decades before it became law because... duh?!

    big hugs :)

  3. Wow. This is a great message and so simple done, too.

    Years and years ago long before seatbelts became mandatory my Dad always told us "This car doesn't leave the driveway until everyone has their seatbelt on." That's always stuck with me and I've always worn my seatbelt as have my kids.

    Thank God I've never needed them but you just never know.

  4. wow, I loved it--it actually gave me goosebumps. Loved the music that they paired with it. We ALWAYS wear our seat belts. Fortunately that was a must with my parents and I learned at a very early age.

  8. Yes it is nice. But the idiots don't watch or listen to PSA's - pretty or practical.

    Have a great weekend!

  14. I saw this quite a while ago as well, but it still gets to me. We've always worn seat belts. I used to tell the girls that the car wouldn't start if they didn't have their seat belts on!

  15. Wow! That was a powerful message. Going to share it on FB. I admit to not wearing it as often as I should. I was raised right, and wore it all the time until I ended up working less than 2 miles from home and just stopped because it seemed by the time it was on, it was time to take it off. Such a stupid reason. I know. :(

  17. Talk about your goosebumps! Me, too. This is such a moving ad I wish we'd use it here.
    I remember driving with my kids laying in the back window, or with one of them standing on the seat beside me, my arm around them. God was certainly with us! I never go anywhere w/o mine on now.
    (You understand - that was 100 years ago!)

  20. I usually don't watch videos in blogs or those sent to me. Glad I watched this one.

    An important message beautifully conveyed.

    Now we just have to get folks to realize that cell phones and texting while driving are just as dangerous as not using seat belts. The results can be far more dangerous than no seat belt use.

    Join the effort to make your vehicle a phone free experience while you are driving. Let your passengers use the phone, you keep your eyes on the road.

  21. This was really great. I forwarded it to my children, and asked that they forward it on, especially if they know of anyone not wearing their seat belt.
    Thanks, Sandee!
