McCann Worldgroup Helsinki reminds you to check yourself before you wreck yourself with a stranger, because you don't know who checked in before you. The spots, for the AIDS Council, cleverly play off our fondness for social-media check-ins. The spot aimed at men draws you in with some seductive making out, and then, just as her panties are about to come off, a Google Maps popup appears that says, "Ryan Smith and 19 others were here," right over the lady's crotch.
