I saw this billboard yesterday and I had to stop and take a picture of it. (Actually, I had to park, cross the street in the rain, and stand there like an idiot taking a picture of it).
Is it just me or does this ad bother you?
I can’t help but think it’s from Smart Tan or a similar organization. If so, I’m appalled that they’re using the pink ribbon to promote their cause. Now, if the message was just “Vitamin D helps decrease your risk,” I’d have no problem with it. But the fact that they say “from the sun and tanning beds” makes me a bit suspect.
I’m all for Breast Cancer Awareness month, but why use it to promote your own cause? And isn’t this kind of like trading one cancer for another? I realize skin cancer is less deadly, but still.
What do you all think?
