A funeral home in Grand Rapids said it wants to raise awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.

Cook Funeral produced a video campaign warning of the dangers of texting behind the wheel.

Organizers said they want to get out the word just before high school football season kicks off by debuting the campaign at a game Thursday in Grandville.

Marking director Bob Kreter says the campaign is targeted specifically at new teenage drivers.

A video in coordination with the campaign shows a high-school football player sitting up in a casket warning funeral goers of the risks.
