Ya know, I would have had no problem with the lyrics in this video talking about contraception, which was put out by Midnight Beast in combination with Marie Stopes international, except for two lines.
“One up the bum, and it’s no harm done.
One up the bum, and you won’t be a mum.”
But ya still could catch stuff. Did they have to put that in there? And why did they bleep bum? Kids are going to spend more time focusing on what that word was supposed to be than the whole rest of the video.
I love how people at Marie Stopes focus on the fact that the video is promoting condom-use, but don’t really mention how those lines got in there. Did they just give Midnight Beast creative license and that’s what they came up with? Why didn’t they stop it before it hit YouTube?
And apparently there’s one point where someone’s eating a banana and finds a condom in his mouth. What’s up with that?
I have no problem with a fun video to grab kids’ attention to teach them about condom-use, but…one up the bum? Excuse me?
