7-11 Just Infuriated Everyone With Disturbing New Warning Sign Liberals Demanded

Now I think we’ve seen it all.

An advertisement for condoms by the worldwide convenience store chain 7-eleven has pissed off Norway’s tourist board with its rude message about venereal disease in order to promote its business.

The offending ad says “Welcome to Norway! The Land of Chlamydia” and shows a young Norwegian couple dressed in the traditional bunad costume in front of a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and fjords. Visit Norway, which is the nation’s official tourist board has said in an official statement that the ad puts Norway in a bad light.

“(This) makes Norwegians seem like uncouth, lewd, sex-mad people,” Visit Norway marketing developer Stein Ove Rolland told Dagbladet. “This is not a good advert for Norway, and as a depiction of Norway and Norwegians it is a disaster,” he added.

The Local reported:

An advertisement for condoms by convenience store 7-eleven has irked Norway’s tourist board with its message about venereal disease.

“Welcome to Norway! The Land of Chlamydia”, pronounces the poster, which shows a young Norwegian couple dressed in the traditional bunad costume in front of a backdrop of snow-capped mountains and fjords.

Visit Norway, the country’s tourist board, has hit out at the ad for depicting Norway in a negative light.

“(This) makes Norwegians seem like uncouth, lewd, sex-mad people,” Visit Norway marketing developer Stein Ove Rolland told Dagbladet.

“This is not a good advert for Norway, and as a depiction of Norway and Norwegians it is a disaster,” he added.

The poster advertisement is currently displayed at Oslo Central Station, making it likely to be one of the first sights to greet tourists upon arrival in the Scandinavian country.

But Tore Holte Follestad, assistant manager with sexual health NGO Sex og samfunn (Sex and Society), praised the provocative ad.

Follestad said that Norway’s own health authorities should run a similar campaign themselves.

“I think this conveys an important message in an unjudgmental way, and it will be noticed,” he told Dagbladet.

The claim as to the prevalence of chlamydia in Norway made by the campaign is also an accurate one, he added.

“In 2016, over 26,000 cases of chlamydia were diagnosed in Norway and Norwegians are not good at using condoms. The consequences can be discomfort, irritation and in worst cases it can lead to reduced fertility. Furthermore, you can infect others and become more susceptible to other sexually transmitted diseases,” he told the newspaper.

7-eleven’s press spokesperson Thea Kjendlie said that, by ‘warning’ tourists against Norwegians, the campaign played on national pride.

“As with all slightly controversial campaigns, there have been both positive and negative reactions. So far, we have seen both types, which is expected when the aim is to get our young target audience to talk about the topic. It was not our intention to offend anyone with this campaign but we do want to create engagement and awareness around this topic,” Kjendlie said to Dagbladet.”

The ad is currently being displayed at Oslo Central Station which makes one of the first things that greet tourists upon arrival in the Scandinavian country.

But on the flip side Tore Holte Follestad, who is an assistant manager at sexual health NGO Sex og samfunn (Sex and Society), praised the controversial ad. In fact, Follestad said that Norway’s own health authorities should run a similar campaign themselves in order to raise awareness.

“I think this conveys an important message in an unjudgmental way, and it will be noticed,” he told Dagbladet. He added that the claim as to the prevalence of chlamydia in Norway made by the campaign is an accurate one so he has no issue with it whatsoever.

Whatever you might think of the ad I think 7-11 is doing the right thing by raising awareness to a health crisis which can easily be avoided by the use of a condom. But I guess not all Norwegians see it that way.

Here is more on this crisis via The Local:

“Norway is Europe’s ‘herpes hotspot’, with the country’s inhabitants making more Google searches on the uncomfortable sexually transmitted disease (STD) than those of any other country in the continent.

The study, carried out by the chemists Superdrug, using Google Trends, ranked Montenegro second in terms of herpes searches, followed closely by Norway’s neighbor Sweden.

No country in Europe, however, came close to the United States in terms of how often residents sought information on the irritatingly persistent virus, with only residents of five countries in the Caribbean, the world’s unrivaled herpes hotspot, making more searches.

HIV and AIDS are by far the most searched for STDs globally, with African countries massively leading the way in per capita searches.

People in Switzerland made the most searches about syphilis in Europe, while those in Albania made the most searches for HIV/AIDS.

Russia and Belarus, meanwhile, made the most searches about Gonorrhea.

In the UK, there were more search about chlamydia than any other STD, indicating that the Google Trends-based study may throw some light on the actual prevalence of STDs.

According to official figures, chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STD in the UK. “

Former Facebook Security Chief Just Blindsided Google CEO With Earth Shattering Claim

Many have been critical of Google’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, now a former Facebook executive has called out Google’s CEO for lying about the company’s motives.
Facebook’s former security chief Alex Stamos took to Twitter recently to attack Google CEO Sundar Pichai for his comments defending the company’s decision to move into the China market with its censored search engine known as “Project Dragonfly,” Silicon Beat reports.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pichai stated that Google was “committed to serving users in China” and compared Chinese censorship laws to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union. Pichai received severe criticism for this comparison, both internally and from those outside of Google.

“Tech companies constantly walk a difficult path between complying with local law and protecting human rights,” Stamos tweeted Thursday. “For Sundar to compare the “right to be forgotten” (which I agree is problematic) with censorship in China is, at best, amoral and mendacious.”

Stamos further added that: “China’s censorship regime is a tool to maintain the absolute control of the party-state and is in no way comparable,” to the right to be forgotten law.

Google software engineer Colin McMillen tweeted: “It is extremely bad that Sundar appears to either think that RTBF is morally equivalent to government surveillance & censorship, or that he appears to think that nobody will notice this analogy is extremely inaccurate.”

The Eagles offense struggled on Sunday night, and put up their fair share of bad plays. However, their celebration game was definitely on point.

The defending Super Bowl champs hosted the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Which, also happened to be on Veterans Day. While the first part of the game brought forth precious little in terms of offensive output. The second half saw a burst of scoring from both teams and, a salute to our veterans from the entire Eagles offense:

The NFL has certainly done its fair share of damage in tarnishing the celebration of our flag, anthem, and military, by protesting during the national anthem. However, with those protests having all but disappeared, it would be good for the NFL to work towards resuming its former place as the primary celebrators of our flag and country, in American sports.

Sunday night was a good start.
