Funny Commerical Gets It
April 30, 2010
If you’re a girl, you already know it, and if even if you’re a guy, you probably have a good sense of it: Having your period is not fun. Girls deal with their periods because they have to.
I don’t wear white or frolic through fields of flowers on my period. I’m guessing that most other girls don’t either, but that’s exactly what you see in commercials for tampons and pads. It’s these images that make these commercials so ridiculous.
Kotex’s commercials for their new line of tampons, pads and liners called U are great because they challenge the images of women on their periods dancing through a flock of butterflies. The commercials are totally hilarious. And while I may not have rushed out and bought these particular tampons, the commercials definitely caught my attention. And what more can you ask of a commercial?
