Land Of Chlamydia: Norway Angry At 7-Eleven Condom Ad

Submitted by: dm2754 7 months ago in News & Politics Weird
If the goal of advertising is to get noticed, 7-Eleven has succeeded by creating print and video ads that portray the country as a place riddled with venereal disease. A video posted online shows Norway's famously gorgeous scenery alongside some unexpected words.

"Norway. Land of the fjords, the mountains, the midnight sun, and chlamydia," the text reads. "Norway has one of the highest rates of chlamydia in Europe. Visiting from abroad? Protect yourself against the locals! Get your condoms at 7-Eleven."

In 2016, over 26,000 cases of chlamydia were diagnosed in Norway and Norwegians are not good at using condoms. The consequences can be discomfort, irritation and in worst cases it can lead to reduced fertility. Furthermore, you can infect others and become more susceptible to other sexually transmitted diseases,” he told the newspaper.

Most of the cases are due to older generations not using condoms. 
But funny commercials are funny
