Are you one of those people that text all the time?

No matter what you’re doing…you’ll pull out your cellphone and send a text.

Well, Volkswagen is looking to change that.

They decided to show and ad with a clever twist during the previews of a movie.

The ad starts off with someone getting in the car, and driving down a rural road.

Then, after a few seconds, a mass text was sent to everyone in the theater using location based technology.

While everyone was looking at their phone, the car in the ad hit a tree causing a startle. Everyone picked up their heads from their phones and read the message: “Mobile use is now the leading cause of death behind the wheel. A reminder to keep you eyes on the road.”
