More Nurse Boobification

‘Tis the season, apparently. After Dr. Oz, we have our very own Canadian example, from a beer company based in Calgary, featuring scantily clad nurses attending a physician. Here’s the ad — it’s already been flagged on Youtube, so you’ll have to login to to see it.

And here’s the letter of complaint from Judith Shamian, president of the Canadian Nurses Association (and whose blog is enrolled on the right.)

The thought occurred to me, as I was writing this up: from the beer companies perspective, the old truism might be true after all: there’s no such thing as bad publicity, and here I am, enabling them!
