Hot girl in Lamborghini safety ad

    The shock of the cleavage footage in a road safety campaign is almost outweighed by the ‘death’ scene.

  • Video

Can sex sell safety? The UK seems to think so.

The UK has released a road safety message that relies heavily on the car-plus-cleavage meme.

The internet abounds with video showing pneumatic young women riding in supercars, but with the camera focusing on their abundant cleavages rather than the cars.

A new anti-speeding advertisement in the UK has picked up on the meme, showing a buxom blonde in a high-powered Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, which the driver takes at high speeds over some twisting country roads.

When the Lamborghini crashes, you see that it was never an Italian supercar being driven – just an everyday passenger Peugeot.

The shock of the cleavage footage in a road safety campaign is almost outweighed by the ‘death’ scene. But if the ad is designed to grab the attention of the young male demographic, it may well be a success in that regard.

Whether or not they take on board the safety message at the end – or even notice it – is another matter.

  • That's a 206. How come the 4 airbags didn't go off? I do like the use of the meme, but I think the target market for the advert would be aware of such things and be able to dismiss the message.

  • The message is quite obvious, but the direction, editing and acting are rubbish. The final scene has no damage to the car, and no dead people, they're BOTH breathing and squirming, not just him.

  • 'What is the song'? Road safety message received loud and clear, obviously. Ad was rubbish, btw - young 'uns aren't so stupid as to fall for such poor editing and stodgy presentation.

  • Hi, I directed the film. The music is from AudioNetwork, called 'Crashing' and it's written by Bob Bradley, Matt Sanchez, Steve Dymond & Giuseppe De Luca Glad you like the Ad, hopefully it will slow some lads down! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks, Simon, for letting everybody know. Obviously AudioNetwork has a potential hit on their hands. - Karla Pincott, Editor.

  • Does anyone know the name of the song??

  • They don't appear to be injured and the youth will notice this and then see it just 'parents' writing this add. Males, not all, but some like to take risks. Perhaps more facilities and events for young male drivers will allow them to satisfy this thrill and not on the road. Finally, they would have forget it quicker then I wrote the first line here....

  • I'd love to watch the video, but because it's the same media player piece of rubbish that NEWS.com has I cant. When are you going to build a new one? This one is over 10yrs old and has never worked properly.

  • Nice job, your video player doesn't ever stop "loading". How much money are you paying annually for this hopeless video player service?

  • The crap music lessens the impact of the deaths.

  • She doesn't look dead, so no that won't work.
