The cheeky video ends with a reminder to ladies to not forget to check out their own breasts, too!
Come October, people deck up their homes to celebrate Halloween. They spend days planning to get the perfect outfit together, but what many people don't know is that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As per The American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in America. This makes the need for raising awareness about breast cancer important.
In a cheeky video that was aimed at raising awareness about breast cancer, 31-year-old Whitney Zelig conducted a fun experiment in 2019, where she wore a low-cut top and walked around New York City, to see just how many people would do a double-take at her ample bosom. To calculate the number of gazes she gets, she chose to fit her top with a hidden camera, too. The experiment resulted in a minute-long YouTube video calculating the total number of people checking her out!
The video starts off with Zelig securing a button camera on her top before leaving the apartment. She steps out into the streets with a confident stride, and that's when the show begins. The camera's clever placement manages to capture every single gaze that comes her way. People, people in costumes, and even animals couldn't help but be enamored by her breasts.
I mean, even Batman and the Cookie Monster couldn't resist looking. The Statue of Liberty simply lifted her glasses off to take the view in. It's not like they're all making it very obvious and staring right at her breasts, but there's this subtle glance, and they continue with their lives. All in all, close to 30 people glanced at the woman!
Zelig's amusing adventure came to an end with a rather important reminder appearing on the screen. "Ladies, don't forget to check out your own breasts too. Early detection saves lives," it reads.
According to New York Post, Zelig, who made the video with her brother Chris Zelig and friend CJ Koegel, wanted to raise awareness for early screening of breast cancer. The video description adds, "Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so establishing a regular breast self-exam is very important. These exams are simple and only take seconds to do. Caught early, breast cancer has a 99% survival rate."
There was also a subtle dedication to Zelig's mom, who is a cancer survivor herself.
Though Breast cancer is more common in women, men are also prone to developing it. The only way one can be absolutely sure they're cancer-free is to get regular checkups done. After all, prevention is better than cure, any day!
