Anyone see the new PSA commercial about MC riders?

It was cool, showed a guy in a car pulling onto a road after checking the on coming traffic only to get hit by a motorcycle. The jist of the commercial was look twice and be certain the way is clear ... never seen a commercial like that before and I wonder if accidents were up enough nationally for someone to actually make a commercial about it.

sorry, no links to youtube or livevideo that I know of.

theres this ad i been seeing where the car pulls up to an intersection. then the voice over guy tells u to look once, and look again. and a motorcycle cruises by at the second look.

then says something about watch out for motorcyclist.

this ad is played during 6-9pm i think.

That's the British one ... the one I saw was specifically for Americans, seeing as how the driver was on the right side... still a very good commercial, apparently a copy of the one you posted ... just from American audiences ...

Ok, at least I'm not the only one...

I saw this commercial the other night, around 1am, and thought "It's about time!" then I realized what time they were playing it at and then haven't seen it since... the people that pull out in front of you, I would say, are not up at that time (Soccer moms and business guys on the phone)... Sorry, for the generalization, but...

Anyway, at least someone is trying to help us out!

I was trying to find the link, so thanks to all that posted it up. I'm going to forward it to as many cagers that I know... may create a email virus so that everyone finds out.
