Prostate cancer? A blood test will tell you.

no doubt about the cognition qualities of the entire campaign.

a prostate examination is no longer involving your ass, but the vein on your arm.

As wordnerd explained. The copy on the ad explains it.

Simple idea

I'm not sure if I'd like to see an entire arm next to the words prostate and blood.
And I know that is exactly the point of the campaign, ... but still....

I knew the Swiss were good with cuckoo clocks and chocolate. It seems creative advertising is another one of their talents. These are great!
