I was reading an article this week about some of the dangers that face our young people simply because they imitate what they see. The article told about the Reebok company pulling an ad which showed an athlete jumping over an oncoming car - because some teenagers in Kentucky were trying to do the computer-generated stunt for real. One of them broke his leg and ankle trying to perform the daredevil stunt. Other problems have arisen from teen imitators of stunts performed on an MTV show.

A 13-year-old in Connecticut suffered second-degree burns when he tried to imitate the trick.
