well, I saw this commercial

for Always feminine products and it was talking about how this girl in Africa would miss one week of school every month because of her period! At first I thought it was a joke but then it went on to say that Always helps her with this "problem" so she can go to school every day. Then at the end of the commercial there appeared this groups of words across the screen that I will NEVER forget for the rest of my life....

"HAVE A HAPPY PERIOD!"

WTF??!! ARE YOU SERIOUS??? ARE THEY FOR REAL??!! WHO THE F*CK TELLS A WOMAN THAT??? I'm sorry to get so angry but I can't believe the stupidity of some ad campaigns. I KNOW that there are women who work for this company...how could they let these MEN, and I know they are MEN, put something like this on TV?? Those two words don't even BELONG in the same sentence, talk about oxymoron to the NTH degree!!

AT BEST, we can hope for a "not too bad" period, but NEVER happy!!

what's HAPPY about ...

what's HAPPY about BLEEDING!!! from your VA-JAY JAY!!!

okay, I've calmed down now...

okay, I've calmed down now...

THANK YOU!! Of course, I ...

THANK YOU!! Of course, I don't have to worry about this -- I've had surgery -- but this commercial grates on my last "happy" nerve!

I'm assuming the gist of the campaign is that the girls will be happy because they don't have to miss school due to having their periods. Tacky advertising.

What I don't understand is why they don't just purchase the supplies needed for these girls with monies already donated by hundreds of thousands of people.

I know I've posted about this before, but why does the whole world have to know when a female is bleeding from her "va-jay-jay?" This is used to be "sacred" info -- in the "olden days" it was information shared usually just between a wife and husband. Now grandma knows, the preacher at church knows, your boss knows, etc. I just cannot get used to this new fad of letting everybody know when you're bleeding between your crotch. :(

is there nothing personal ...

is there nothing personal anymore?? geeeeze

Amen, sister!

Amen, sister!

Everyone needs to be ...

Everyone needs to be reminded of a woman's period at EVERY commercial break, just as much as we needed to be reminded about erectile disfunction, and the men that can not get it up when ever they want...but the pills that can make it happen. I am SO freggin sure a woman sits there watching tv, and says to herself "My husband could benifit from those", just as a man can sit through a tampon commercial and think " I wonder if my wife is out of stock...maybe she could use those" Why do they comtinue to put things like this on tv in commercial form? We already know the product is out there, as they have been in use for quite sometime, but just to be sure, lets show the commercials during EVERY commercial break and on EVERY station...including the kids stations. MORONS!

LOL

LOL

If I recall correctly the ...

If I recall correctly the company making the product is claiming that they are donating to the girls in Africa so that they can go to school full time.
Has anyone ever heard how much the company is donating? I'm sure it amounts to about one cent for every five hundred boxes of the product purchased in North America. Would one of the women on the list be prepared to email the company and ask that question?

and you think that they ...

and you think that they would give you a "truthful" answer? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
happy period! give me a break. the happiest of my life was the day the doctor took the uterus out. then i was really happy.

50 yrs old and not having too many periods now..yea!!!!

I guess having a "happy" period is better than having a "gay" period!

U crazy!

U crazy!

i saw that commercial but ...

i saw that commercial but halfway through it i drifted off from the tv. how creepy. theres one commercial i hate more than that. its a feminine pad commercial. it has some lady who is wearing this snassy outfit like shes a secret agent and theyre talking like theyve created a secret weapon of mass destruction or something. i think she even has a headset on. and they do a "test" on the pad to show you its leak protection. *shudders* i really dont want to see liquid poured onto a pad in a commercial.

<p>Wonder if the girls in ...

Wonder if the girls in Africa are taught to sing "If You're Happy and You Know It" when they get their pads.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)
If you're happy and you know it, then your pad will surely show it,
If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap, clap)!

Maybe these companies need ...

Maybe these companies need to look at the market they're advertising toward..and make their commercials TO that market instead of making the rest of us look at them like..

"WTF?"

Poor taste at the max!!

And then you have those erective disfunction commercials. Used to be a guy with a huge smile on his face either driving in a race car..bouncing off a high dive, etc. with his wife looking on (with a grim from ear to ear from her also).

The latest commercial is from the same guy with a smile on his face..with women standing in line to sit on his lap.
