Behold, the fabulous “butt bus” currently making the rounds in Toronto and Laval. We launched these extra special additions to our GetYourButtSeen campaign to celebrate Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month 2011. Can’t wait to come up with next year’s cheeky scheme!

Many thanks to Ogilvy Montreal, the creators of this daring (and fun!) campaign; to our partners at Hill & Knowlton for assisting with media outreach; to the Toronto Transit Commission and the Societé de Transport de Laval for approving the risqué designs; to CBS Outdoor and MetroMedia Plus for your impeccable service ; and to Dr. Alain Sotto, a true trailblazer in the world of workplace colon cancer prevention and screening programs (can’t wait to tell you more about the work he’s done for the TTC!)

After the cut, see some pics of our media events in each city and just a glimpse of the press we got!
