If this campaign goes well, what other types of "secret messages" will governments be giving to children in the future?


government? wait until pedobear's "Free Candy" vans implement it

So the kid's supposed to stop & write down the number? "Hold on, Fagin, I need to take down these digits" A nice effort, but needs fine-tuning.

It is a sad world we live in when something like this is thought up.

@Canoas

I know what you mean, but trying to put myself in the child's place, I think that if I were out with my "aggressor" and saw that poster, I would assume they had seen everything I had seen. And since you can't exactly call child abusers rational people, I'd be afraid of being punished for looking at it.

too bad that in spain child abuse by parents/adults is not that much of a problem, it's the kids that hurt each other, rape each other, commit crimes and burn down their schools and generally are violent and disrespectful because they know that until they are 16 they can not be punished by law for their actions

text isn't dark enough for the child and now the aggressor knows to avoid that failure of a poster.

good job losers.

Not clever enough. I mean they did all this publicity to make sure adults know about the stunt... but how do kids who probably don't watch the news to hear about this know that they are the only ones that can see it. Or explain to their parents who haven't heard the news that they see beat up kids.

"LOL canoas, reading isn't something that you just learn to do, and then it's done. I knew the alphabet in Kindergarten, but I would hardly consider that the ability to read anything practical."
What do you mean consider it practical? The moment you learn to read then, by definition, you can read. It doesn't matter if they use it or not, the moment a poster with a beaten up child catches their attention, and it will if someone's hurting them, they will read what it says. They're not going to think "Hmm.. There are some letters there and I know how to read, should I look at them or not?"

@iLove
I don't think it really matters to the kid if the adults see it, tbh. The only reason it's hidden from the adult is so he's not aware his child can call them at any moment, because if he knew then he probably would ensure they couldn't use a phone whenever they want.

I can't stand people who hurt children but this is creepy stuff.

That's really clever, but how is the kid going to know they're the only one who can see it? Any child who hasn't seen this video ad will assume the adult with them can see the phone number as well, making them less likely to call.

"What's not so clever is most kids that height and under can't quite read yet."
In my country we learn how to read at the age of six.
