Abstinence is the only sure way to avoid pregnancy and STDs, yet this fanny pack condom campaign will make you question the best method to use. This marketing scheme is comical and incredibly clever because it explores a rather obvious way to evade sexual attention: by looking utterly unappealing.

In the end, this fanny pack condom campaign will end up selling Sir Richard's Condoms instead. Stats for Unfashionable Prophylactics Trending: Older & Chilly
