    Save The Boobs! Breast Cancer PSA

    Read more at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/09/24/save-the-boobs-is-this-br_n_298349.html


    This is sure to be controversial. What say you?

    If I we can be subjected to ENDLESS commercials for Cialis, Viagra, Enzyte, et al
    then certainly this PSA, though racy, should be OK. It is bringing a more modern awareness to a very important issue. I have no problem with it.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it, but it seems like they are just copying the "Save the Ta-tas" campaign

    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    I like the saying "Save the ta-tas" better, LOL. IMO it is not any worse than a Van Halen video, LOL.

    As Adnoid points out, the ad will certainly reach men.

    This pretty much says it all imo. If we have guys watching an entire breast cancer awarenss PSA we've got something there.
    My dh has it endless loop.

    Lol! You all have made me laugh. I really hate bringing this up but last yr at 33 yrs old I was diagnoised with breast cancer. I'm pretty conserative but I think this commercial is great and is attention getting. People don't realize how many young women it effects, it's an epidemic. Heck even men get breast cancer, a lot of people don't realize that. I do want to add that I really didn't like the end when she's in the pool, I thought that the point was made with out that though.

    Works for me! I don't find the ad racy or "low" at all. Do what it takes for awareness. For *any* perky age group. It's the beginning of what all young woman and older women should know. Our boobs are a part of us. No matter how high or how low (gravity sucks), we ladies need to be part of support and care. For ourselves and our sister's.

    BTW, I can do that "bob" walking thing. Just keep a safety space of 3 feet away.

    not a prude here but

    so many women have lost 1 or both boobs....and it says "let's save a boob"....

    It would be like saving a man's testicles or prostate....they lose more than just "that" when they have cancer.

    Maybe I'm wrong but let's see how many husbands start asking the wife when the last time was she had a mammogram???

    Do wives ask their husbands if they exam themselves?


    btw, I think Bob is dreamy...............................and has a lot to offer

    That reminds me of this [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-ofKMFj5vk"]YouTube - Support the breast cancer foundation![/nomedia]. It features this guy 'Cam' who is all smarmy and loser-esque in his offering to exam women's breasts, claiming to be 'highly motivated' and asking women to 'put your breasts in my hands.' The message of the ad is that women should be doing self-exams every month.

    Speaking as a woman who has a long family history of breast cancer, I applaud this commercial. Whatever it takes.

    My father has a very classy t-shirt that says, "Save 2nd Base".
