This came to my attention the other day and I thought it was interesting. The ads are targeted towards men - telling them not to be "that guy", instead of the more common messages telling women how to stay safe. I haven't personally seen them around nor have I heard from people who have, but I'm hoping they're out there, that people are seeing them and that they'll have a positive impact.

Here's the website for the people who started the campaign: http://www.sexualassaultvoices.com/

Thoughts? Do you think it would be effective? Something you'd say/do differently? Has anyone seen similar ads?

I really like those. They remind me a bit of this Scottish campaign I really liked, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h95-IL3C-Z8&feature=player_embedded
