Terrifying Tampon Ads (To Go With This Okay One!)

Look! No, look! It’s a red dot! Red, not blue! Not blue water! It implies that you might bleed down there if you’re that kind of person. Copyranter points out that this is “a historic advertising moment!”

Okay, it’s tragic that this is a historic advertising moment and that up until now ladies in advertisements have been having alien blue periods. Like, this shouldn’t be noteworthy. But, let’s just take a moment to consider how far we’ve come.

      I really, really like the shark one as a picture but not as a tampon ad.

      The vampire one kind of makes sense? I mean, vampires bite you & his fangs are made of tampons which would theoretically help absorb/suck the blood out…?
      okay, no.

        Maybe it doesn’t make sense because he wants to just suck the blood out, not block it from coming out, which is what those tampons are presumably for.
        And that’s probably the grossest thing I’ve said today.

      Aaah this reminds me of the “Tampires Tampons” spoof. “I vant to suck your period blood!”
