WATCH: Volkswagen Scared an Entire Movie Theater Into Not Texting While Driving

Posted June 10th, 2014 @ 6:31am

Here's a pretty brilliant way to get people to stop texting and driving.  Volkswagen played a new ad before the previews at a movie theater in Hong Kong recently.  The first 10 seconds are of a car driving down a road, from the driver's point of view.


Then they sent a text message to everyone in the theater at the exact same time.  And when people looked down to check their phone, the car CRASHED.  Then a message about texting and driving pops up on the screen.  It's probably staged, but still.
