Brilliant CPR advert

    I thought it was pretty funny, and a catchy way of getting the general public to know the absolute minimum for such situations. Granted, IMO, everyone should have some level of first aid training.

    I got mine via work and didn't think I'd need it, but have used it a few times (including pulling someone with a heck of a split head out of a canal!). So I'll also plug that, if you get the chance, take some first aid training, many employers will put you through it :bassist:

    Because i'm a lifeguard, i don't like how they teach this, but then i remember it's to people who really have no idea how.

    So... I approve!

    I've been lovin' that ad since they started airing it. They should do a whole series with him.

    On a serious note, some experts don't like this way of teaching because it focuses on the rate of the compressions rather than the quality (hence the broken rib comment). On an unserious note, very funny!
  5. Aye, it isn't quite to the level of what pro's get taught, but for a 45 sec slot, it's done in a way that makes it pretty easy to remember the very basics. :)

  7. If you didn't both work around water, that'd be a bad case of epic burn right there.

    It's good, they are not 'proper' shady geezers though, they would be likely to do the decent thing and to go through your pockets first :)
