Campaign Enlists Comedians to Curb Reckless Teen Driving

Posted By Brad Aaron On March 6, 2009 @ 12:17 pm In Ad Nauseam,Athletes and Celebrities,Car Culture | No Comments

The Ad Council has some new material in its campaign aimed at teenage drivers. In these spots, a comedic actor (Fred Willard in the ad above) in the backseat of a car with three teens cajoles or threatens the driver into slowing down or minding the road. The gist of the campaign, corresponding with the title of its web site [1], is "speak up or else" -- a name perhaps more suited to hard-hitting PSAs from overseas [2].
