Warning: I'm about to talk about tampon commercials XD

Every time I see these ads for Kotex U, I literally laugh out loud.

I watched this twice just when I was looking for it to post on here, and I laughed both times. Okay, then there's this one.

And I saw this one in a magazine:

It makes fun of how awkward people get about it. You can't see it at the bottom, but it says something like "Why are 40% of people uncomfortable with tampons? Break the cycle." I think this is hilarious. Also effective advertising. There's a New York Times article here about this (also where I got the picture).

Dear Kotex,
Your commercials made me laugh, so to thank you, I might buy your stuff. You're funnier than Tampax.



  1. OMG... That first commercial is BEYOND hilarious!!! We all have weird thoughts and habits but those are especially funny because they are so common. Her tone of voice only makes this commercial funnier. The second commercial is a lot more serious because it brings up a lot of things to dicuss. It's still funny because it's a parody of those same issues. I know I'm stating the obvious, but I can't help but feel that way. The New York Times article was thought-provoking. I never noticed any of what it said until I saw this post and read it. People should be a bit more mature about the subject of periods.

  2. Haha I don't think either of them was serious. They're both so funny. And yeah, it's hilarious how awkward people get about it.
