Scary advertising

According to statistics 50% of the Finns die of heart related illnesses, and to make people more aware of the fact some quite disturbing advertising has been shown on the TV. Four people getting strapped in for a ride in an amusement park, but only two of them get their safety equipment strapped, and the other two just disappear during the ride. Well guess that is in a way true but quite awful to show it anyway.

And a Finnish electricity company has made an ad about global warming, showing a fictional weather forecast from the future with tornados and the disappearance of the Ă…land archipelago as a result of flooding, asking what your electricity company does do to minimize their contribution to it. And here we are now living the coldest winter after the longest and warmest summer I have experienced in Finland so far.
