    Has anyone else seen the new bridgestone tyres advert?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOWH_9-KriM

    I think it is horrible and hate it every time it comes on, I think it is a bit harsh playing on people's minds like that by using a newborn baby in the advert. I mean I know we all will try to keep our babies as safe as possible but this advert plays on that for marketing purposes implying that if you don't have their tyres your baby won't be as safe grrr

    I felt really sick the first time I saw it, I turn over if it comes on. I can't bear things like that now.

    I hate this advert, it upsets me every single time I see it.

    It's so close to what happened to us that it brings back a lot of bad memories for me and really upsets me.

    And it's just on TV right now, third time tonight. I hate it.
