Do all countries have to put do not attempt at the bottom of their commercials or is it just America because of all the freaking idiots in this country?

Do not attempt ( to drop a piano on your head )
Do not attempt ( to drive your car up a building and fly it around town)

Etc etc....

If there are people dumb enough to notice the ads, there are even more people dumb enough to NEED them, so they too can play in the 'gene pool' yet another day...maybe..

Japan does some clever commercials that range from simple idol appearances/endorsements, to ancient culture references to theatrical to...just plain humourous.

Korea does a LOT of celebrity commercials, but this isn't as bad as America, becasuse when big singers do commercials, the songs are written especially for the product. Better than changing a few words of another song, or just shoe-horning a reference in.

The U.K. does some really good ads as well.

They don't put that warning there because they necessarily think people will do those things, they do it because the lawyers tell them they have to.

As most times. I am kidding! All of the safety laws defeat natural selection. Except for children! Today I viewed a tragedy in Texas. A full size SUV with resraints for seven passengers left the highway. entered a ditch and rolled, Two adults were in the front seats. Ten children were in the back. The SUV had seven seatbelts. No child or booster seats were present. The driver, front seat passenger and five children survived. Five (we have to assume) children did not have safety restraints. If adults choose to not use safety equipment that is natural selection. If adults choose to not use safety equipment for children, that is criminal! They need to be hung!
