This fairly powerful video clip is a real wake up call.
It's up there with some of theVictoria TAC ads.
Tredegar Comprehensive School and Gwent Police (Gwent is located in south-east Wales,UK) present a half hour drama entitled 'COW' --The film that will stop you from texting and driving," with SPECIAL EFFECTS BY ZIPLINE CREATIVE www.ziplinecreative.co.uk (this is a trailer video)
COW: Its all about Cassie COWan a nice girl from a Gwent valleys family who kills four people on the road because she used her mobile and lost her concentration for a few seconds. Gwent police is proud to have helped Brynmawr filmmaker Peter Watkins- Hughes in the production, which stars local drama students Jenny Davies as Cassie, and Amy Ingram and Laura Quantick as her friends, Emm and Jules.
It is hoped this film will become part of the core schools programme across Wales and the UK and ultimately worldwide.
Gwent Police facilitated the films crash scenes because we want to stop ALL drivers, but particularly young and new ones, from causing accidents.
Over 300 teenagers from all over Wales were auditioned to take part in the film, nine police vehicles were involved and both the police and air ambulance helicopters featured.
State of the art digital special effects were utilised to show the impact of what would happen inside the car during impact.
Lyn Samuel, School Liaison Coordinator for Gwent Police said: We worked closely with the production team including the University of Wales Newport, Tredegar Comprehensive School and local partners including the council and Probation Service. The result is a very impactive road safety educational tool to help reduce the number of collisions involving young drivers across Wales. Chief Inspector John Pavett from Gwent Police Roads Policing Unit hopes the serious message in this film will hit home to viewers:
Making and receiving calls and texting whilst driving is still happening on roads not just in Gwent but all over the country"
Seeing a scenario, like the one Cassie goes through, played out right before your eyes makes you realise how extremely dangerous it can be and what devastating consequences it can have.
I hope that after watching this film motorists will think twice before picking up their mobile phone when behind the wheel and realise that a quick reply to a text message or answering a phone call is never worth putting theirs and other peoples lives at risk.
It should be noted that here in Wales, we use the word "taster" instead of "teaser" as we're giving you a "taste" of what the full 30-minute video is like.

In Transylmania, a motley group of college students embark on the wildest, sexiest, most outrageous semester abroad ever at Razvan University. Located deep in the heart of the cursed land of Transylvania in a centuries-old castle, Razvan isnt your typical institution of higher learning and the black leather-clad professors, three-foot-tall dean, instruction in crucifix-wielding, and topless vampiresses lurking in dark corners are just the start. It seems Castle Razvan was overtaken by a band of vampires led by the feared Vampire King Radu in the dark ages whos come back to reclaim it.
A bubbling cauldron of wacky horror spoof, vampire action-adventure, and naughty college comedy, Transylmania culminates in a hilarious climax that just might leave our bumbling heroes not Euro-trashed, but Euro-slashed. Transylmania will be sure to slay audiences with its biting wit and bring a welcome levity to the air of heavy drama typically found in the midst of awards season.

LYRICS (and dialog):
(Pan the room...)
Random use of candles, empty bottles and cloth,
and can you see me through this fan?
Creepy doll, a window, and what looks like a bathrobe.
Then, a dim-lit shot of dangling balls.
Close-up of some candles and dramatically posing
then stock footage of a moon in the sky.
Messing up my close-up with a floating blue curtain.
Now let's see who's coming in from outside ...
(Double doors open...)
Why aren't I reacting in this shot?
(Ringo Starr? Lined eyes.)
Guess I should be acting but I'm not ...
Wander through a hall with doors that magically open
and this classroom has a fan ...
Now it's getting creepy.
You can tell by my staring
it's a long time since I've been with a man.
(Stupid chair ...)
Emo Kid is throwing Slo-Mo Dove in my face,
I guess that means that he just flipped me the bird.
(Locker room ...)
Staring at the swim team gets you killed by a gang
of dancing ninja men who know how to twirl.
(Spin around ninjas!)
Then a bunch of preppies make a toast.
(Drinking wine, douchebags!)
Most of it just ends up on the floor.
And they shouldn't fence at night,
or they're gonna hurt the gymnasts.
Why do they play football inside?
Here's another shot of fencing.
And I've mostly been lit from behind.
Watch these shadows run off.
I walk onto a terrace, where I think I'm alone.
But Arthur Fonzarelli's got an army of clones.
(Fonzie's been cloned!)
They do the Macarena, but I'm still not impressed.
They beg for me to dance with them,
but not in this dress!
I'll pose like Rocky tonight!
I'm running up a bunch of stairs.
(Strip football and surprise mirror!)
Here's where I pretend to be Eva Peron.
Look at me, I'm lifting my arms.
There's nothing else to shoot,
so zoom camera under this arch.
Leaning on myself 'cause there's two of me here.
But now there's only one in this shot.
I pull my feathered hair, whenever I see floating cloth.
Oooh, oooh, ooooooooh, I gotta use the bathroom but the door's locked. Can you help me?
I'll open the door for you! HOOOOOOOAAAAAAH (phbbbbbbbt).
Oh, thank you, sir. How can I ever repay you?
How about a towel?
Hey, guys, check this out -- waaaaah! Wait, it's supposed to take the cloth and leave everything else on the table -- I don't know what happened, and it's not like that, it's the other way ... no, stop, you're making it worse!
Alright, which of you preppies put gold dust in my fencing mask?
Hey, this isn't the ladies' room!
(Blind possessed choir boys...)
Get out of my way! I've gotta pee!
(Zombie cult?) Agggh! Flying altar boy!
Never mind, I just went on the floor!
Now I need to find a mop!
(Look at me now!)
Emo kid wears too much make-up.
Now, watch a bunch of half-naked guys--
...as they dance around in diapers.
And I've joined the Glee Club of the Damned.
Look, the fog machine's on!
What kind of private school would let in these kind of guys?
It started out as Hogwarts, now it's Lord of the Flies!
(I hated that book.)
I'm swaying side to side.
These dancers need to stop.
The gayest man on earth would call this over the top!
I whip my head to the right!
I'll never go to church again.
(I think I lost a contact lens.)
When did spazzing out qualify as a dance?
Kneeling like I want to throw up.
What the effing crap?
That angel just felt me up!
Here's a line of guys,
I was wearing a dress.
But now they've got me wearing a suit.
One kid's running late,
I think he's too young for this school.
I'm totally shaking his hand.
Mullet with headlights?
