The Liecestershire Teenage Pregnancy Partnership recently put together a short ad reminding teens of the importance of using condoms. What did they turn to for inspiration for the ad? Old-school platformers, of course.

In the minute-and-a-half-long ad, a Mega Man-esque red-haired guy must make his way past various dangerous STI (sexually transmitted infections) to uncover the coveted condom power-up. Unfortunately for this fool, on his first run through the level, he drops the condom into a bottomless pit. We've all been there, right?!

Seriously, though, people, don't forget your condom power-ups. Check out the video below.
