Australian non-profit Learn for Life have unleashed this gruesome advert that attempts to encourage kids to stay in school and not to bunk off. It's a warning for those that do.


This is a public service announcement about the importance of staying in school which contains very graphic, violent scenes. There's a sentence we never thought we'd say. Australian non-profit Learn for Life are behind this rather threatening advertisement. The video has already gone viral even though blowing up school children in the name of advertising has been done before.
