One of the rights of passage for American high school students is getting their driver's license and getting a car. That's where the trouble starts. I'm not even going to get into the wisdom or utter lack thereof of letting kids start driving at 14 years and 9 months. When kids get a car they need to put gas into it and at $3.50 a gallon that gets old fast.

Four students from Churchill High School in Livonia, MI created a public service announcement video for a class denouncing big gas-guzzlers like the Cadillac Escalade. The original version only got a C in class but after reworking it, their teacher entered the spot in the 2007 Michigan Student Film & Video Festival where it got one of 32 best in show awards out of the 284 entries. It's good to see that not every kid wants to run around in a big SUV.
