(PCM) Talk about an advertising fail! We hope someone lost their job over this one, either that or people in the Philippines have a really sick and twisted sense of humor! The Dionisio M. Cornel Memorial Medical Center in Antipolo is using an image of the “X-Men” character Wolverine (claws out, mind you) to advertise for their circumcision service. Ouch! Wolverine doing a circumcision! That is something we never ever, every want to think about!
Something about adamantium-claws and circumcisions just don’t seem to go hand in hand! The ad features actor Hugh Jackman dressed as the Wolverine character he has portrayed in both the “X-Men” and “Wolverine” film franchises. The text featured next to the image explains the clinics circumcision services. The text translates out to read: “Cheap, doctor, hospital… this is where you get painless circumcision!” And get this! The price is only a whopping $28! Well, at least we don’t have to worry about going broke on a circumcision in the Philippines, but for that price maybe a Wolverine character really is doing the procedures!
Let’s hope they have some kind of licensed medical staff, but who knows? There has be some kind of law against using licensed characters for advertising, but sometime the rules are a little shady when you are travelling overseas. Either way, using a claws-out Wolverine to advertise your circumcision service is an epic fail all the way around!
