Nothing says “Hit me Cupid!” like New York City-distributed prophylactics. The City today debuted a newly-redesigned wrapper for its condoms, along with a refreshed ad campaign called “Get Some”.

I think I prefer the design they used last year, as pictured above. Much more subway-inspired with the oval-enclosed letters than the new batch.

As always, the timing of these releases — Valentine’s Day — tells me that someone in the municipal health department has a sense of humor. Then again, they broke records last Valentine’s Day when they gave out 3 million of these rubbers, to the joke’s on us.
