Diageo has launched a powerful new anti-drink driving film, tied to its Johnnie Walker brand.

The online ad, part of a campaign to get a million social media pledges never to drink and drive, was released this week ahead of Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo, Diageo said today (22 November). It shows a F1 F1 racing car made out of 1,750 glasses crashing into an invisible wall. 

The campaign is “to remind consumers that, in life as in racing, control is everything”, said Diageo's director of corporate social responsibility, Carolyn Panzer.

“The Glass Car” features two-time F1 drivers' champion and Johnnie Walker responsible drinking ambassador Mika Hakkinen. It was made in conjunction with F1 team Vodafone McLaren Mercedes.

This week, Diageo announced a partnership with the NBA in the US covering three of its brands - Ciroc Vodka, Canadian whiskey blend Crown Royal and Baileys Original Irish Cream. The deal includes a series of public service announcements on responsible drinking starring NBA players.
