    This is my son. Some of these comments are insane! We told my son exactly what he was doing and that this would help people be safe. It was a great experience for him to learn how to be safe and why a seatbelt is so important.

    I have to admit I never thought of someone else not buckling up would have this kind of impact, this commercial is very good and a wake up call for those that dont buckle

    I thought it was a real accident photo, and wondered how the family of that poor child felt about using him to try to save other childrens’ lives. I decided the dad who hadn’t seatbelted himself (but probably survived) probably didn’t mind that at all, but was probably still punishing himself at the loss of his child because HE hadn’t done a basic, easy, noncontroversial thing like seatbelting himself. I’m a little surprised to see that it is a portrayal, not a real situation, but not upset, duh! I know it happens, and it may look just like this. I don’t have to see the real thing, though.

    I just realized that I assumed the “unbuckled parent” was a father–of course, it could’ve been a mom!!

    This ad does not bother me the fact tax payers dollars were used to fund a Super Bowl commercial does. This didn’t need to be done during the Super Bowl more goverment waste.

      You know the NFL is tax exempt right? Maybe if you care about tax dollars supporting the Super Bowl you can start there.

      Local time slots during superbowl are not purchased at a premium and are affordable. It is also federal money not local money. You are terribly wrong in your assumption of the dollars spent buying local spots.

    Seriously, I’ve seen a lot worse during regular t.v. programing time and on the news that this. This brought about a very important message of the importance of using your seat belt. The other blood and gore on T.V. is simply to increase ratings and sell commercials.
