Now here's new campaign for Canada's Prostate Cancer Foundation BC, which is encouraging men to check for prostate cancer with a humorous stunt -- a pair of briefs that open in the back to give doctors easier access.
Agency Rethink created Checkup Briefs, an actual product replicates the traditional front closure on the backside to give doctors convenient access to the prostate during an exam. To get a pair of the limited edition Checkup Briefs, Canadian men need to let Prostate Cancer Foundation BC know that they’ve booked their exam by leaving a comment on their official Instagram launch post. The recipients will receive a box of Checkup Briefs which will also include tips on what to expect and how to prepare for their prostate exam to help them feel more comfortable.
"Prostate cancer is still the number one most diagnosed cancer among Canadian men," said Prostate Cancer Foundation BC Executive Director Leah Lariviere, in a statement. "Our goal with Checkup Briefs is to amplify awareness around the importance of having prostate exams through a more humorous approach. We hope that this more tongue-in-cheek direction can allow men to feel more comfortable about learning and talking about prostate exams.”
