GUNS N' ROSES "Sweet Child O Mine" Used In Disturbing Anti-Speeding Ad

The DOE of Northern Ireland uses "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses in their new PSA about road safety. It's a folk cover of the song, which I guess fits to an extent. "Sweet Child o Mine" a love song about Axl Rose's girlfriend at the time, so I guess we can stretch this here and say "oh they're using it as a metaphor of caring about someone!" Which is a lie. They used the song because it was "child" in it and there are children in the video.

I say we just throw in "Pull the Plug" by Death next time for drunk driving videos. Let's scare people in being responsible.
