So you would be happy for a video of Dennis Kemp being killed at Araps going viral and being posted as entertainment in a "top ten climbing fail" montage? With a graphic at the front of the video stating no-one got killed? You watch this video as an outsider who hasn't been near one of these accidents and experienced the trauma. I have. It made me sick watching the girl fall off El Cap as I saw it happen in real life.

Having worked on these campaigns myself I can assure you that the family agreed to the use of any footage used in the commercial - and that 99% of it is manufactured fake footage of crashes/blood/death.

I understand a video being created as an educational warning. But this video was made for light entertainment.
