An Audience Was Tricked Into Using Their Phones To See What Happens When You Text And Drive

Volkswagen created a pretty impressive PSA for an audience in Hong Kong that shows what happens when you look at your phone while driving.

After they were seated, the audience was shown a first-person view of a car on the road.

Using a location-based broadcaster, a person hiding upstairs then sent a text to everyone in the theater.

See what happens next…

“Mobile use is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel,” the ad finished.

Good work Volkswagen. I thought this was a clever and thoughtful message.
