Here’s a hard truth. Or not. Men who have had Covid-19 are 6x more likely to get, err, as Erin so gracefully puts it, ‘penial softiosis’. The Urologist Unit For Vaccine Education, or the UU4VA has appealed to the common, somewhat ignorant man to save his stiffy. One of the long-term side effects of Covid-19 has been Erectile Dysfunction. The warning comes in the form of a video for #SaveTheFutureBoners campaign and begins with guys talking about the first time they had an erection. How routine.
Someone had it during the Olympics, someone in the library. Different things do it for different people, huh? These men then talk about regularly getting boners, one admits it’s so common that he doesn’t keep track. When asked how important their erections are, a man excitedly admits that it’s a very important part of his life and that it’s the only thing he cares about.
Push comes to shove, Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows is told by a group of urologists that men who have had Covid are 6 times more likely to develop erectile dysfunction later. In all honesty, the truth seems to have slapped him in the face. And so he asks his fellow men to get vaccinated because, you know, it’s about their penises. That Urologists are present with the scary statistics only makes the appeal more convincing.
Advertising veterans Seidband and Sang belonging to Quality Meats Agency, the very agency that birthed this PSA, had noticed two things about the pandemic: that not everyone was getting vaccinated, and that studies were confirming the relationship between coronavirus and ED.
Because a number of young ‘invincible’ guys weren’t getting jabbed, the fear of a dark tunnel aka being a no boner loner would convince them to get their shot.
The Public Service Advertisement has taken over social media, especially Twitter, with close to 70K views. #SaveTheFutureBoners has become a campaign in itself; the warning comes just at the right time to save the world and ensure a continuous population explosion.
Well, ask a guy to get the vaccine to protect his family and friends. Might not work, though. Ask a guy to get the vaccine to protect his penis, and you’ll have a line of men outside the clinic.
