breast cancer advert

Once you've picked your jaw up off the floor, you may be surprised to learn the aim of this overtly sexual ad is to encourage women to have more breast examinations. Sorry, scratch that, it's aim is to get men to encourage women to have more breast examinations. Created by Chilean agency Lowe Porta, Santiago, the ad features a montage of breasts being soaped, fondled and suckled before displaying the tagline: "Si tanto nos gustan, deberiamos cuidarlas. Incentiva a mujer a hacerse un examen de mamas." Translation? "If we like them so much, we should take care of them. Make a woman get a breast exam."

    Boats and docks damaged by Hurricane Sandy are seen at the Mansion Marinia on the shores of the Great Kills community November 7, 2012 on Staten Island, New York. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Tuesday announced a limited evacuation of some neighborhoods ahead of harsh weather barreling toward a city still recovering from superstorm Sandy. The national weather service forecast heavy rain and likely snow on Wednesday and Thursday, accompanied by gale force winds gusting as high as 43 mph (69 kmh). Though barely half the strength of Sandy, the autumn storm will lash already damaged buildings and bring lower temperatures for tens of thousands of people still struggling without electricity. Bloomberg told a news conference that parks and beaches would close. The worst-hit patches of waterfront neighborhoods, including Rockaways in the Queens borough, and in Staten Island, were being asked to evacuate again. AFP PHOTO/Paul J.
