AMV launches Breast Cancer awareness drive

Shocking ad hopes to encourage women to check for cancer

AMV Breast Cancer Ad
AMV Breast Cancer Ad

The action begins in a darkened club as a pole dancer seductively performs her sexually charged dance to a re-worked version of Underworld's Born Slippy, which is slower and sung by a woman.
As the dancer moves through her routine she slowly begins to remove her clothes.
As the camera moves closer and she unclasps her bra the viewer is confronted with the shocking image of the results of a mastectomy, she only has one breast.
This is the latest cinema ad from Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO for the breast cancer charity, Against Breast Cancer.
The ad is designed to tap into our voyeuristic sexually charged culture to draw people in, and then use shocking images to jar the viewer into realising that breast cancer can affect anyone, and that women should check themselves regularly.
