MTV’s Odd Advertisements About Safe Sex

MTV is known for debuting racy music videos and controversial reality TV shows, but their safe-sex announcements are equally titillating. Their latest campaign features a series of cartoon drawings of a flaccid penis equipped with tiny wings—sometimes wearing a hat or round spectacles. Even more edgy, the member is personified doing mundane things like watching TV or playing chess. The slogan for the campaign reads, “There’s no sex in heaven. Stay alive. Use a condom.” [How do they know there’s no sex in heaven?] While we appreciate the message, the mixture of all these elements seems a bit bizarre. What other advertisements have controversial or confusing messages? Take a look at the strangest ads promoting safe sex.
