I am defiitely PRO child safety and 100% PRO good parenting and WAY in favor of cool and innovative outside-the-box thinking …

… but does this pool-bottom billboard strike anyone else as, well, just plain creepy?!?

    OMG! I did not think it was possible for me to become more neurotic when in the presence of children and water. I think that did the trick.

    Whoa there Mr. forward thinking advertising stud-ents. This one crosses the line.
    I like the slogan, but the face down kid is not cool!!!!

    I was thinking exactly what “writechic) and “TypeWriter” posted.
    This advertisement is just plain funkatated. My kids may never freaking swim again…EVER! Between this ad and dry drowning…I may need to go find one of those beer serving Burger Kings just to make it through the summer months!

    Pretty sure my kids would get out of the ff’en pool. If we’re gonna have posters at the bottom of pools like this, why not have billboards closer down to the side of the road (so you can view them next to you while you speed by) with car crashes pictured on them….with bloody body parts, alcohol bottles, etc. all over? That might get the point across for drinking under the influence.
