Clever ad depicts iPod deaths -- look both ways, kids

Look, we're all about making fun of a nanny state trying to get us to drop our earbuds for street crossing, but we're also against stupidity and what Australian police call a problem of "epidemic proportions": teenagers dying from crossing the street while listening to an iPod. NSW Police commissioned these ads that we'd say make their point quite nicely -- and remind us of a contest submission from a while back. Obviously it's not the iPods doing these kids in, rather fast-moving hunks of metal and a near-idiotic lack of attentiveness, but if you're the absent minded type, perhaps unplugging your ears for street crossings would be a good habit to get into. Or you could, you know, look before you leap.
