Look… call me a caveman, simple man, stupid-man, I don’t give a damn. Insult me all you want for this but…… as a man, the only thing I want to know about a period is when is that god awful shyt is over with and done so that we can get back to business.
I’m a nice guy… sometimes, and I’m very understanding… sometimes, and you ladies know how much I adore you. But I don’t have any desire to see, understand, talk about or listen to anything that has to deal with blood seepage and clotty clumps of matter coming from your body. If it was up to me, women would all be quarantined for 3-6 days a month in a blissful resort where your every whim is catered to and every imaginable recipe featuring chocolate is served to you at your request, 24-7 as you sit by the ocean and enjoy the crisp smell of fresh pacific breezes. All the martinis, chocolate and midol you could need. Not for YOU, but for those of us who have NO desire to be apart of the experience. The rest of us can go about or lives without ever having to even acknowledge the horrors of what happens below.
You can call it a beautiful scientifically natural thing all the hell you want to, fugg you, I’m not buying it and I’m not about that life, boo-hoo, cry me a river, im immature and aware don’t care bytch what.
Now from what I’m told, this advertisement is hilarious, ground breaking, a true awesome culmination of social media and traditional advertising married in wonderful example of coolness. To which I’ll take your word for it.
About periods? Not Interested, won’t find the humour, it’s all yours, thanks for playing and have a nice day.
Ad campaigns for maxi-pads and tampons tend to look like commercials for exotic resorts, replete with beachside strolls, yoga at sunset, and well-absorbed blue dye the color of a crystalline sea. With that Zenlike imagery on the one hand, and on the other the misguided stereotype of the crazy PMSing woman, it must be awfully confusing for men–or at least it was for one Richard Neill, whose amusing tongue-in-cheek comment about period confusion posted to the Facebook page of Bodyform, a British brand of maxipads, has now inspired a national campaign.
“As a man I must ask why you have lied to us for all these years,” Neill wrote. “As a child I watched your advertisements with interest as to how at this wonderful time of the month that the female gets to enjoy so many things, I felt a little jealous. I mean bike riding, rollercoasters, dancing, parachuting, why couldn’t I get to enjoy this time of joy and ‘blue water’ and wings !! ”
His clever jab at the brand got 80,000 likes. But it also got something unexpected: a direct, and even wittier, response from the company. [source]
