Whose hand are you holding?

I’ll admit it, I can be pretty lazy at times.  I always say I’m going to get up and walk to class, but it just never happens. I always end up taking the bus.. especially during the winter.

Parents tell their children how important it is to sneeze into your elbow, constantly wash your hands and try to stay home if you are sick. This has been especially popular advice since the beginning of the swine flu epidemic.

however, I am now committing myself to hand sanitizer every time I touch something that multiple people have the ability to touch.

This ad is visually informing.  It does not come straight out and say, “Think about who all has touched this thing you are now touching.” Instead it uses hands to represent slings on a bus with the slogan “Whose hand are you holding?” It may not say it in words, but this ad is very blunt.  You never know who has held or touched a bar in a bus or a door handle. You never know where that person has been or what else they have touched. The hand in the very front of the ad has band-aids all over it’s fingers. After actually thinking about it, public places are filled with millions of germs. The ad promises that Dettol Hand Sanitizer will instantly kill 99.99% of germs. How convenient is that?
