WATCH: Entire movie theater scared into not texting while driving (VIDEO)

Here's a pretty brilliant way to get people to stop texting and driving. Volkswagen played a new ad before the previews at a movie theater in Hong Kong recently. The first 10 seconds were of a car driving down a road, from the driver's point of view.

Then they sent a text message to everyone in the theater at the exact same time. And when people looked down to check their phone, the car crashed. Then a message about texting and driving popped up on the screen.
