Commercial Break: Face up to the danger of fireworks
As New Year’s Eve approaches like a pissed horse on rollerskates, our attention turns to the nowadays-obligatory midnight fireworks and more importantly, the massive amounts of human damage they can cause.
This ad is taken from the Dutch ‘Don’t Fanny About With Fireworks’ campaign (as we’ve just decided it’s called). In it, a young man foolishly gets too close to a rocket which, as it is perfectly entitled to do, rips a significant part of his face off.
Cut to the hospital – the medics have done their best and the doctor is ready to unveil their repair work. Alongside him is Booby The Nurse, a huge fan of the patient’s original look and keen to see if he has been restored to his former glory.
Whatever will happen next…?
