You know what this guy has?

A hipster beard?  A swarthy look?  Some pretty nicely airbrushed skin?


Nope. Well, actually yes to all of the above. But I guess also we’re supposed to assume he has syphilis.

I’m shaking my head at the concept behind this ad.  But it was fun laughing out loud.

  1. He’s very handsome! And so very Portland-y. I wonder what Portland men are going to do now that beards are on the way out? This ad reminds me of the Friends episode where Joey does a print ad without knowing what it’s for & finds out at an inopportune time that it’s for VD.

    1. I suspect Portlanders will keep wearing beards. It will just be a Portland thing. Sigh. That guy is good looking. I spent some time deciding if he was supposed to be gay. The poster didn’t say the problem specifically affected the gay community, but a lot of times STD stuff is gay-specific. (I know this because I read the paper.)

  2. Beards are on their way out? I thought they now have trendy things like glitter and ornaments for beards. Honestly, I think there are some people who just dig the beard and will always have the beard. And others will do it ironically.
