Breast Cancer Foundation of Singapore: Are you obsessed with the right things?

Three clever ads with real body painting. The Breast Cancer Foundation of Singapore wants women to become obsessed with the one which is mostly forgotten: breast examination.

“Are you obsessed with the right things? The difference between a pimple (big butt/bad hair day) and breast cancer is that of life and death. Regular breast checks are the best way to fight cancer. Show support for the women in your life by purchasing a Pink Ribbon.”

As a Stage 4 breast cancer survivor and someone who is now having to decide about mastectomy. I LOVE this art work!  Clever way to get the point about breast screening

For God’s sake this is not sexist. It makes a good honest point. I think painting the inside of someone’s rectum is a little different, and wouldn’t be as affective bachman.
