"Share the Road" by Leo Burnett Norway (Kitchen)
We all hate 'em: overly-aggressive drivers who force bicyclists off the road. They're dangerous, rude and, more than anything else, obnoxious: Who the (insert explicit word here) do they think they are anyway?
To raise awareness around this ever-so-annoying issue, Kitchen Leo Burnett created a campaign called "Share the Road" for Statens Vegvesen, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.
The campaign includes four hilarious videos that depict bicyclist-driver interactions in everyday situations - shopping in a grocery store, taking an elevator, walking in a park and sitting on a bench.
Each video features a scenario in which a man or group of men acts as either an aggressive driver or biker. From crowding one's personal space to pushing someone off a park bench, it becomes evident that aggressive, self-centered behavior is not acceptable - not in everyday life, and especially not on the road.

Bottom line: Sharing the road is a two-way street. (No pun intended.)
