Have you seen this? (Updated links)

The 10:10 "No pressure" PSA that they had to remove shortly after posting it.  Warning the video is kind of graphic.

Article

Video

I think my favorite part is this in their apology:
“Oh well, we live and learn.”

And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    I didn't watch the video, but - good Lord. Hello, common sense.

    Beats, it took a while for it to load for me - it was graphics heavy.

    [QUOTE]The page won't load beyond the article title for me, but I think I got the gist. I'm kind of glad I can't see the video. What was the message they were trying to convey with that imagery?

    The way I saw it was "If you're not going to follow our rules we're going to blow you up."  I get that they thought it was funny, but I do not see how, and that comes from someone who laughs hysterically during horror films when they do the over the top gore.

    Gah, that's horrifying. And poorly thought out. What are they trying to get us to do though? Stupid article still won't load.

    What are the graphics/article/video? I don't want to click on it without knowing since I'm on a work computer.

    Yeah . . . seeing children blown up & reduced to chunks of meat (I didn't watch the second one) like terrorist suicide bombers wearing explosive-laden vests and seeing the other children screaming after being showered with the blood and guts of their classmates . . . not so funny to me.

    I guess they've never heard of catching more flies with honey.

    Wow. I would not have gotten that from the content of the ad. Persuasion fail, green folks.

    I saw this on a political list I am on. Way to play into the hands of your opponents.

    You're right.  It's not loading for me either.  I found the video on Youtube and another article about it that I linked in OP.  Unfortunately the only other article I could find was from Fox News.

    Sounds Faux News-ish. I'll try to look it up.

    Sesh, it was an eco-bloggers website.

    Message FAIL. Big time. Even without seeing the video. And, like Kelli, gore in movies doesn't bother me.

    Right! This kind of stuff is aggravating because IMO, the campaign itself is sound. I think people all over the world should make lifestyle changes to reduce their carbon footprint and it could make a huge difference. But now no one will take the message seriously.

    Another example is PETA. They have some good points. With many restaurants and meat packing facilities, the animals are not treated or killed humanely and they should change. But if you're acting like a complete lunatic, people will not hear your message.

    I don't understand how this relates to global warming at all.  Massive campaign fail.

    Maybe they're trying to say that if we don't comply the world will heat up to such a point that all of a sudden our blood would boil and we'd pop?  There I found a connection :D

    This is just a crazy campaign, and I say that as someone who thinks we do need to find more ways of being enviromentally friendly.  Crazy!  It's also weird that the teacher goes out of her way to say that it's up to each person if they want to follow the initiatives and then she blows up the ones who don't!!  The Fox News article was over the top, but it does have a point in asking if this is how these people really feel about those who disagree.
