Clever Ad for Breast Cancer Awareness Evades Censorship Rules
An Argetinian breast cancer organization came up with a way to sidestep facebook and instagram’s censorship rules by posting a different take on Breast Cancer Prevention PSAs.
Using an unconventional approach, they managed to get 8 million views in just four days.
Since social networks prevent photos or videos showing female nipples, Buenos Aires-based nonprofit Movimiento Ayuda Cáncer de Mama (MACMA), or Breast Cancer Help Movement, decided to use “man boobs” instead.
Yes, you read that right. The results are hilarious but no less informative.
“Women’s boobs, particularly their nipples, are censored in certain social networks, even when showing breast self-examinations to detect early breast cancer,” says a narrator as the video begins, showing a topless woman whose breasts are hidden behind social media logos. “But we found boobs that aren’t censored: Henry’s.”
Then “Henry” steps in front of the woman who wraps her arms around him and begins to demonstrate how to properly perform a breast cancer examination to check for lumps.
On cue, a shirtless “Henry” steps in front of the woman, who wraps her arms around his body and demonstrates how to conduct a self-examination to find cancerous lumps.
The video and campaign have receieved rave reviews, with many netizens praising the creativity and brilliance of the people behind this campaign.
Watch it in full below.
