The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Chicago have taken public service announcements to the next level by erecting this billboard ad near a freeway warning folks of the dangers of….hot dogs.
They are planning several futher ads in a campaign to warn people of the dangers of processed meats.
Wonder if the PCRM have been taking notes from those dumbasses at PETA who prefer this kind of approach at getting peoples attention.
“A billboard is bluntly telling Chicagoans that hot dogs cause “butt cancer” — and the hot dog industry is not amused.”
“The National Hot Dog & Sausage Council — which you can find at the wonderful URL hot-dog.org — reacted immediately to the billboard, which went up recently on the Eisenhower Expressway.
Calling the ad “outrageous” and “inflammatory,” the trade group dismissed the PCRM as a “pseudo-medical animal rights group” bent on turning all Americans into vegans.” [msnbc]
Would you stop eating hot dogs if you saw that billboard?
