FINALLY! A tampon spot with a beaver.


Not surprisingly, it comes from the Land Down Under (via Sydney ad agency The Brand Shop. Female creatives [yay!] worked on the commercial.) It's for U by Kotex, "for the ultimate care down there." First, France finally acknowledged that blood does in fact come out of vaginas (not some blueish liquid). Now this. How do we advertise tampons in the USA? Lamely. Very Lamely.

Wait, when you're down under, wouldn't "down there" be... up?

I think the next step in tampon ad evolution will be to (humorously!) acknowledge that periods actually really suck. I for one do not have friendly relations with my beaver at that time of the month. I just want it to ruin my life as little as possible. That said, this is super cute and a healthy departure from the usual crap.

No, no, Jessie. You see, in the Southern Hemisphere, down is still down. The difference is, the blood drains out counter-clockwise.

This is a ridiculous commercial and a total waste of time. Everyone knows that beavers don't buy, let alone wear, tampons.
