Government ad features exploding frogs

DETROIT (AP) - A new television ad from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration featuring frogs apparently exploding on a hot road is aimed at teaching motorists about tire safety.
The spot, released Monday by NHTSA, features parody of a nature TV show with a narrator describing the "perilous journey" that frogs face crossing the road - especially in the summer heat. The frogs then appear to explode.
Another narrator says that although frogs aren't really likely to explode in the heat, it's important for drivers to check their vehicle's tires.
No frogs were harmed during filming, and NHTSA said a Humane Society observer was present while the commercial was being made.
