The members of Simple Plan have intensified their stance against drink-driving by adding a special message to the end of the sombre video for their song UNTITLED.

The clip shows the far-reaching effects of drinking and driving, and now the bandmembers have entered into a partnership with MOTHERS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING (MADD) and will attach a message from the organisation to the end of the video, reports MTV NEWS.

The message reads, "Traffic crashes are the #1 killer of teens, and nearly one-third of teen traffic deaths are alcohol-related. For more information (call) 1-800-GET-MADD."

In concurrence with the MADD partnership, Simple Plan wrote a letter to fans, asking them to watch the video and consider the impact of their actions if they choose to drive drunk.

The note reads, "When an accident happens, there are more victims than people think, and many lives are changed forever. Parents, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters... everybody feels the impact.

"One of the students at our high school crashed his car driving back from a weekend trip and killed his best friend. It was a very sad time that none of us will ever forget."
