Halloween has passed, and Ad Nut didn't see any legitimately scary movies. The film above, however, is truly bone-chilling, showing how a sexual predator 'grooms' a young victim for exploitation. Ad Nut encourages parents to watch the whole thing. It may seem slightly unrealistic, but that's because you're watching a compressed, three-minute representation of a process that could easily take months. Predators can be extremely patient, diligent and insistent.
The social campaign, by VMLY&R Brisbane for the Queensland Family & Child Commission, also includes the poster below for distribution in schools. The agency worked with a QFCC committee and the Queensland Police to establish the storyline, and consulted with real teens to ensure the scenario was believable.
