A compilation of video clips featuring stop signs around the world being buffeted and battered by storms, wind and waves makes a powerful statement for environmental group Conservation International in a new PSA.

Created by its Colombian agency MullenLowe SSP3 for World Climate Day on March 23, the ad used real journalistic footage of floods, hurricanes and storms around the world. "By putting them in a different context, we were able to use the signs to convey messages to humans from nature and the earth so people stop and think about the impact their actions have on the world," says Carlos Andrés Rodríguez, chief creative officer at MullenLowe SSP3, in a statement.

The ad will air on Colombian and TV and on outdoor and social media across Colombia.
