When I think bike safety or car safety video, I mostly think about boring instructions on how to ride a bike or drive a car in the most conservative fashion. But what if the kids in the safety video had monkey faces and curly tails? That would make even the most Ritalin deprived kid pay attention, right?
This seven minute sampled video I found on Monoscope is pretty great. The first two minutes are a bit of an artsy “My Lunch with 10 Year-Old Andre”, but then a pack of kids with monkey faces and curly tails and funky hats join our young friend on their bikes. It’s weirder and better than it sounds. If my parents had shown me this when I was a kid I think I would have ridden into a lot fewer open manholes.
Monoscope, by the way, is a great site for design enthusiasts.
