USSR You Kidding Me?

This is a series of print ads supporting Movember and Prostate Cancer Research by TBWA Singapore.
I think these are great ads, but what's beyond me is why Stalin has been used.
Here's a fact, Stalin was responsible for killing over 17 million Russians. Prostrate Cancer has killed less than that.
So why is he there?
The others are great but using someone responsible for that amount of deaths to support a cause to prevent death doesn't add up.
Although they are incredibly similar to the Huts-Weber Ad I posted a few months ago, it is still a great campaign with a great message, and a really nice strapline in 'Moustaches make a difference'.
The Hulk Hogan one I found particularly amusing.
