Bodyform Maxipads Does Viral Marketing Right

Sorry for the short post, everyone, but I saw this, and just had to share.

I’ve rolled my eyes for years at the commercials for tampons, menstrual pads, and, more recently, yogurt.  They depict women experiencing an unreasonable amount of joy while engaging in activities that would leave me sobbing and snarling at anyone who came near if I were menstruating.  And while I enjoy yogurt, let’s be real, it isn’t actually that fun to eat.

The last time I laughed so hard at a viral marketing video was when the original Old Spice Man, Isaiah Mustafa, was doing response videos to random internet people.  Take a look at this video, and then the response video here.

The pencil snap and the flatulence at the end were what really sent me over the edge.  I laughed so hard I had tears, and then I watched it two more times.  My hat is off to you, Bodyform!

Thursday Links

Short post today, dear readers, but some great links for you.

After introducing the pill to the “abortion capital of the world”, the ladies of Georgia are no longer having quite as many abortions.  In other news, water is wet.

Carrying condoms can get you arrested, and are being used to profile women, both cisgender and transgender, as sex workers. As someone who used to carry condoms in my purse when I was going on a date, this is disturbing.

We already know that our elected representatives don’t like to hear the word vagina especially when they’re trying to regulate yours, but they’re grossed out by menstruation too.

One of my followers on Facebook was awesome enough to tag me when linking this blog post by Carsie Blanton.  It’s a fantastic read, and of course, I agree with all of it.  Take a look, tell me what you think!
