AN AUSTRALIAN NON-PROFIT has come up with a novel way of dissuading teens from going on the bunk.

They have produced this graphic video to warn students of the dangers of “slacking off”.

The Learn for Life Foundation ad starts as a typically glorious Aussie day. Unfortunately, it takes a turn for the surreal, and graphic.

One of the makers of the ad, Henry Inglis said that the online-only ad is proving popular.

“People seem to really like it. It has that WTF factor. People online are saying things like ‘What did I just watch?’” he told the Herald Sun.
