    Link: Australia`s Anti-Kid Swinging Warning - Apparently, drinking and swinging your kid around is a problem in Australia and they need a public service announcement.

    Don`t drink and swing kids in Austrailia. At least they din`t say you couldn`t drive drunk.

    If you`re gonna swing, don`t drink. If you drink, don`t swing.

    Months ago I read something about an australian dude who was arrested because he posted a video on some site of him swinging his kid in his living room. Wonder how much controversy that generated around there.

    I thought this was an actual don`t swing kids advertisement, until I saw the vid. That would be the oddest campaign if it was an anti-swing ad instead of a drinking ad.

    O.K. what patent wasn`t watching their kid, and why were kids at an adult drinking party? I never let my kids near drunks. Hello, sorry, but a sitter will only cost you 20 bucks and it will save you a lot of grief.

    Um.. Maori`s are native to New Zealand, not Oz. Everyone in the ad looks Maori, not just her. And the website is ".nz". I think we`ve established that its from New Zealand, so that changes everything - that guy was just doing a public service by protecting future generations of sheep.

    "no matter how drunk he was I feel sorry for if that really happened because you know later they would truly realize and just be miserable as hell"

    I think it did really happen. And the camera crew were just filming random things in case something might make a good PSA. And the family of the boy didnt mind it being aired. And the fact that you cant see any cameras in any of the shots is most likely because they asked the man to do that drink thing again so they could cut to a new angle. Yeah that`s probably it.
