‘Cars 2′ Public Service Announcement (Russian)

Walt Disney Studios has released the following public service announcement (PSA) featuring Mater and Lightning McQueen as Mater (inexplicably dressed as a zebra, perhaps in support for John Rich’s recent ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ win?) teaches a young forklift to pay attention to the walk/don’t walk signs when crossing the street, only cross at the designated crosswalk and to look both ways before crossing even when given the green light. If the fact that Lightning McQueen nearly proceeds to run the poor lad over, the real message of the PSA is that both pedestrians and motorists need to look out for each other. And then they all get ice cream.

Here, a sub-plot involving a falling out between Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater is revealed when Mater inadvertently gives McQueen bad advice during a leg of the World Grand Prix and causes him the race. Fortunately, as the tired cliche would have it when best friends/lovers have a major falling out and never want to see each other again, it all works out in the end and the two end up closer than ever.
