Michelin uses puppets to explain tire pressure – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We're all about supporting PSAs that spread the good word about proper automobile maintenance, but this is just creepy. Michelin UK has tapped the Puppet Broadcasting Company to create a video that addresses many of the important know-hows of tire pressure, including how often you should check your rubber and the negative effects of having tires that are too low.

These are important facts that every driver should know, but when it comes to this video, we just can't get past the puppets. They're just... creepy. See what we mean by watching the video after the jump.

Michelin has created a YouTube video to highlight drivers' attitudes to tyre pressure maintenance.

The video, which was created by the Puppet Broadcasting Company, uses puppets to highlight some of the worrying attitudes of people to tyre maintenance. These have been revealed numerous times to members of Michelin's Fill Up With Air team that tours the UK and Ireland each year checking tyre pressures.

It includes various characters including a boy racer, a sales rep and a middle class woman to try and educate motorists of the importance of looking after their tyres and how easy it is to get into the habit of never checking them at all.

The video can be found at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Om_dNhss3sw
