The 'Safe Sex for Seniors' commercial is perhaps the most odd thing one may see in a long time. That being said, this public service announcement does its job because by clearly getting its message across.
The commercial is a montage of senior citizens demonstrating numerous positions from the Kama Sutra, each position making one cringe more than the clip before. When the advertisement wraps up, text comes onto the screen that read "In Florida alone STDs in seniors have risen 71%." This is followed by a reminder to always wear a condom, although some people who see this will never want to have sex again.
At least the seniors have clothes on, otherwise that might take shockvertising to a level no one ever wanted to see.
