OMG. Remember the Always post from a while back? The genius letter I wish I would have written?
Well, they didn’t learn a flinging flanging thing! There is now a commercial where the pad is on a saddle like a bucking bronco and it’s a country theme and at the end it says “Have a happy period!”
What would be better marketing tactics? I’m personally thinking free chocolate with purchase. Cuz right now – I’m still buying anything but Always.
OMG they did it again? Who on EARTH has a ‘happy period’???
I love the idea of getting free chocolate with your purchase, that, and a heat pack would see me fine.
Arghhhh, these ads must be made by men.
I am sure they are made by men. My man laughed himself off the sofa when he saw that bucking pad commercial.

Yeah, because we all know how lovely, jolly, and wonderful having the red tide in is! Stupid effers!
LOL OMG I did somehow come across that letter some time ago! I laughed then and again now! Every time my husband sees that commercial he cringes! It’s fabulous!
They really need to come up with a new slogan before they piss even more women off!!!
I had to click the link cause I thought you were kidding…you weren’t kidding. OMG
Assholes. Luckily I stopped using that brand long ago, when they introduced dry weave. Blech. (Also lucky me – I haven’t had a period in over two years).

Haha! I just saw that letter for the first time yesterday in a forum I frequent. Hil-lar-ious!
I have yet to see the commercial. I guess they don’t run it on Nick Jr/Sprout/any of the like. 😉
Free chocolate – tee hee!
And guns. Guns to kill everyone who asks you quetsions like, “How are you feeling?” and “Are you pregnant again?”

We have Tivo..what is a commercial? I need to blog about that…how I never see commercials anymore!

I read during commercials… or just stare. It’s an art form for those of us without TiVo!!
I do use Always… maybe I should reconsider. Dangit… I hate having to actually think about that stuff! 🙂
Where’s this chocolate?!
