This video looks like many other comedy fail videos... but it's got a biter sting in its tail that will make you think twice.

The video clip shows a number people of looking at their phone and walking into lampposts, crates and even a pond.

A caption appears saying: "You can't even text and walk".

The video then cuts to a woman sending a text while driving a car. What happens next will stop you texting and driving forever.

It's part of a campaign entitled It Can Wait by the Western Cape Government in South Africa.
