The lesson ladies? 5" heels and stairs don't mix.


That's not the least bit funny, copyranter, you douche bag. This surrealistic, brutal domestic violence awareness video is for BFF (Bundesverband Frauenberatungsstellen und Frauennotrufe), a German non-profit women's counseling and rape crisis organization. Copy: "Thousands of women are falling down the stairs every day. Do you really believe that?"
Never an easy subject to address in a PSA. It's better than most of the efforts I've seen in recent years. Two of the ladies are stunt women Milka Kekic & Anqi Nimbach. Couldn't find the song on Google. By the Frankfurt office of Y&R. Previous stops of the Worldwide Domestic Violence Video Tour: LondonThe UK (watch Keira Knightley get the shit kicked out of her) • South AfricaTurkey.

The YouTube poster says that the song was arranged solely for the commercial

Ohhhhhhh. I found it pretty funny until that one woman's finger nails were scraped off.

From some random website...

"More than 400,000 adults ages 65 and older were injured in falls in 1997.
Falls are the leading cause of injury death in persons over the age of 65. One in every three adults in this age group falls each year.
Childhood falls account for more than 2 million emergency visits each year."

So, to answer the question about falling women, yes.
