Australian TV Ad's.... Scarring or Encouraging?

Hello guys! So below is a Australian TV ad that if you're on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr (like we are) you will have stumbled upon this PSA (Public Service Announcement) called "Set Yourself Free." For those of you that haven't it is an ad by two comedians for a foundation called "Learn for Life Foundation of Western Australia." There have been a lot of reactions to this video and many people have spoken out about it. After you watch it, tell me what you think.

WARNING: THIS AD HAS BLOOD AND GORE


Furthermore, this is just an addition to a lot of PSA's that companies have been releasing to get a message across. For example, Metro Trains in Melbourne have a PSA that has been made into a well known game called "Dumb Ways to Die" (the PSA is below)


WARNING: THIS PSA HAS CARTOON DEATHS


Furthermore Do you guys think that they took it too far or that this over-exaggeration is needed to the severity of the issue across?
Tell me what you think!
