Speeding – no one thinks big of you June 26, 2007Posted by dorigo in humor, internet, news.
Thanks to the web site of Il Corriere della Sera, one of the leading italian newspapers, I got to see this brilliant video, aired in Australia to instill in youngsters the concept that driving fast as a means of self-assertion can actually backfire.
The message passed by the video is clear: You drive fast ? You probably have a small penis, and you dump on the gas pedal all your frustration.
I cannot express strongly enough my admiration for the matter-of-factness and bold free hand of the authors of the campaign. Like the ad against smoking by Yul Brinner dying of lung cancer, this one is destined to save hundreds of lives. Well done folks!
By the way: strangely enough, I do drive fast, but… Oh well. It is a well-known rule in statistics that you can’t compute a meaningful correlation coefficient with less than five penises.
