Has anyone heard the controversy over new public service ads "going too far"? The most recent uproar was over a domestic violence PSA done by Keira Knightly. Towards the end of the clip, there are also 2 other PSAs that are considered too "in your face". (They deal with workplace accidents and -I think- smoking) IMO I think that these ads may make viewers uncomfortable, but that they are no more shocking than when the actual events depicted happen. I think this is a valuable service and we can not always "sugar coat" these issues and still expect them to get noticed and encourage people to take action.

I was watching the Today show ,they were talking about the smoking commercial. How they are traumatizing the young boy to get their message to the people. I don't see anything wrong with the commercial..
