Cover of Guns N' Roses' 'Sweet Child O' Mine' Featured in Insane Anti-Speeding Commercial
A bizarre anti-speeding commercial that features an acoustic cover of Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" has gone viral after appearing online. As Loudwire reports, the clip, made by Northern Ireland's DOE Road Safety group, shows an entire class of children being squashed by an out-of-control car. The Independent newspaper has compared the over-the-top sequence, in which the car flips about 30 times before crushing the kids, to the Sy-Fy cult film "Sharknado."

The purpose of the video is to illustrate that 28 children (the size of an average school class) have lost their lives due to speeding in Northern Ireland since 2000. "Since 2000, speeding has killed a classroom of our children," says the ad's narrator. "Shame on you. You can never control the consequences if you speed." Since being posted on YouTube, the clip has gone viral, amassing almost 2 million views.
