Qantas Supports Movember By Giving an Airplane a Mustache

Tom Selleck is probably jealous.

What is Movember, you ask? Formerly known as November, it all began in Australia when a movement recognized the lack of awareness for men’s health, especially prostate cancer. When men sign up to participate in Movember, they grow their best ‘stash, and campaign for a whole month to garner donations for cancer research, etc. It’s likely you’ve seen the famous “before & after” photo series via your male friends on Facebook. Ladies seem to either love the endeavor, or despise it. Personally, we’re crazy about it.

And it works – Movember has become viral. Nowadays, even airplanes are sprouting mo’s.

Yep, Qantas has painted a mustache on one of its Boeing 737s to show their support for the Cancer Foundation of Australia. This honorary ‘stash can be found flying domestic routes in Australia, but even Terminal 3 at Sydney’s domestic airport is donning a giant mustache with pride.

It’s not just a gimmick, either: Qantas CEO Alan Joyce is a survivor of prostate cancer and firmly supports the cause. He says if he hadn’t found the cancer early, he’d be dead within 10 years.

See? Mustaches make a difference. Plus the airplane just looks sexier now.
