Everyone is freaking out about Nationwide’s super depressing Super Bowl commercial about preventable child death.
Did Nationwide Insurance Just Air The Darkest Super Bowl Ad Ever? http://t.co/9H79pLtsl5

Here’s the commercial:
I don’t have a child so take my opinion for what it’s worth, but I rise in defense of this commercial.
I stand with @Nationwide. You people live in a fantasy. Your children could die. When they do, their blood will be on your ignorant hands.

The world is a dangerous place. If you freak out every time someone reminds you of that simple truth, then you don’t live in the world that exists. You live in a world of pure imagination.
