Road Safety (Scotland): “Flush” - 30s

Road Safety Scotland have become adept at walking the line between serious PSAs and attention-grabbing comedy, and this latest ad about driving under the influence is no exception. It's a step up from the organisation's last grandmother-focused outing, mainly due to a strong central performance from the pensioner in question.

Indeed, a young man tempted by drugs finds himself so thoroughly dressed-down for considering a few lines while being the designated driver that we're sure he'll be put off for life, let alone the evening. A little toot up his snoot surely can't be worth having Gran's foot inserted squarely into his arse - a threat we fully believe considering how forcefully it's delivered from the depths of a toilet bowl à la ‘Trainspotting'.
