Glee Joins Anti-Texting & Driving Movement in PSA
Glee has been making headlines recently and it has been all good for them luckily. They have been in the most news headlines for a surprising PSA that uses scenes from Quinn’s car crash that was a result of texting and driving. They teamed up with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the PSA called Don’t Text and Drive, which reminds people that it only takes a matter of seconds or minutes to get in a car crash due to taking your eyes off the road. You can catch the PSA down below via Entertainment Tonight, which aired the PSA first for everyone to see how it turned out. No word on when it will make its way onto actual airwaves yet.
I am glad that they are taking the issue seriously. A lot of people are killed or seriously injured by texting and driving. So if it takes for a beloved character goes through because of the risk, then so be it. At least the PSA doesn’t show anything that gruesome, which will likely help their own cause. The short and simple PSA will hopefully have enough of an impact thanks to pop culture connection, that maybe just maybe, we will see it actually work. That is the only outcome anyone can hope for from a powerful PSA like this one.
How do you feel about the PSA? Is it too much or just enough to make that large impact needed? I hope it makes the splash that we need it to, but I am not going to hold my breath. That seems to be not in the books based on how the media is spinning it as shocking. If that was the case, then why was it allowed to air on Glee? I doubt it and it certainly isn’t as shocking as some things in other shows are, so I am rooting for the PSA to receive plenty of air time.
