Considered 'too graphic' to be aired in the United States, this shocking United Nations commercial which relocates landmines into 'our own backyard,' powerfully hammers home the horrific consequences of inaction on the issue of landmine eradication.

The commercial ends with the poignant question: If there were landmines here, would you stand for them anywhere?

It's a shame it wasn’t allowed to go to air, as this commercial would definitely have been effective in sending shivers up the spines of US soccer moms. Stats for Shocking TV Commercials Trending: Older & Mild
