Singapore Anti-Groping PSA Features Terrible Puns, Victim-Blaming ‘Tips’


Singapore, which might be one of the worst places in the world if you’re looking to break the law, has apparently rolled out an anti-public-groping campaign, which would be very helpful and nice if its street-side ads didn’t features incredibly creepy pictures supplemented with a litany of instructions about what women can do — “Avoid walking through secluded areas alone”; “Have someone escort you home when it’s late” — if they’d rather not have some leering jerkface fondle them on public transportation. Also, Singapore residents could probably do without the punning “stiff penalties” threat at the bottom of the ad, which makes the whole thing feel less like a public safety announcement and more like an advertising intern’s misguided attempt to corner the impoverished irony market in Singapore.
