Rubber Lover: Best Condom PSA Ever!

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

What better way to support World AIDS Day than with this brilliant musical enticement to wear a rubber? This commercial is from France, but its appeal is universal. Especially in light of George W. Bush's recent appointment of anti-birth control nutjob Dr. Eric Kerouack to head the federal government's family planning office, it's nice to see realistic strategies for disease prevention and sexual health being promoted.

Is it just me or is that the catchiest song ever? The spot deserves repeat viewings for all the hilarious hidden tidbits that you don't get the first time around. Enjoy. :)
