A Russian tampon commercial is making the rounds that easily, hands down the greatest commercial I have ever seen.
Tampon commercials are usually so light, fluffy and full of pastel colors, rainbow romps, and smiling (leak free) young women who can do aerobics and gymnastics with ease! Hooray! So rarely do they ever mention the mess and general discomfort that comes from our periods. They don't mention the stained underwear and cramps and lack of predictability that comes with menstruation.
You would think our periods were all fun and games. But then there is this tampon commercial that shows the REAL danger of a leaky tampon. See below:
See how the shark attacks the woman with the leaky tampon but not the one wearing Tampax. Lucky break for her, no?
It's a side of menstruation few of us have considered, but seriously. More ocean safety comes with better tampons. Look into it.
Now, I would bet there will be those people who find this commercial offensive or bothersome in some way. To those people I say this: Have you ever been attacked by a shark while menstruating? No? Well, you owe that to Tampax. The end.
Do you think this commercial is funny or offensive?
