This Is Definitely the Wackiest Ways to Promote Safe Sex

When a man in a giant penis costume ejaculates confetti on people, you pay attention.

But are you thinking about practicing safe sex?

That's the dilemma facing a wacky PSA in Norway to combat the increase in STDs there. "Penis can surprise you," says the tagline in Norwegian.

The PSA was produced by the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU).

The new ad campaign was launched in Norway after statistics revealed that almost 23,000 Norwegians contract chlamydia every year.

The idea behind the stunt is to let people know that – like the penis – chlamydia can surprise you, so use a condom.

The guy wearing the getup, 19-year-old student Philip van Eck, reportedly told a Norwegian outlet that he's happy to do his part. 

“I thought it was hilarious. If I can help others, just by being a dick, there is nothing better.”

While some people were outraged by the campaign, many also found favor and understood the humour behind the message.

You can't please all of them but at least you get the publicity you needed.
