Association de Lutte Contre le Cancer du Sein: Do like me. Screening saves lives

This PSA from Association de Lutte Contre le Cancer du Sein says, simply: “Do like me. Screening saves lives.”

But instead of giving a demonstration of screening, it just goes straight to the sexually provocative nudity.

I’d give a more detailed critique, but I don’t think I can do better than the dry sarcasm of Adland’s dabitch:

Everyone likes them.

Sigh. Cancer isn’t sexy. Sex is sexy. Can we get over confounding the two now? Please?

See the video after the break.

There’s also a poster available for download.
