It seems innocent enough.

A guy friend requests a girl on Facebook, and suddenly we are transported to the night they met at a bar where they drink and inevitably end up having sex.

Created by Poland’s Red Cross, the commercial seems a bit extreme for HIV-prevention advocacy. Maybe a pro-condom commercial would be better than this wild, scare tactic propaganda.
