Cheeky New Bodyform Ad Strikes Back With the Truth About "Happy Periods"

Cheeky New Bodyform Ad Strikes Back With the Truth About "Happy Periods"

  • The team behind Bodyform brand feminine hygiene products took to their YouTube channel to respond to a man's critical Facebook post in what became brilliant, viral, marketing move.

    Richard Neill's original Facebook post from 8 October reads:

    Hi , as a man I must ask why you have lied to us for all these years . As a child I watched your advertisements with interest as to how at this wonderful time of the month that the female gets to enjoy so many things ,I felt a little jealous. I mean bike riding , rollercoasters, dancing, parachuting, why couldn't I get to enjoy this time of joy and 'blue water' and wings !! Dam my penis!! Then I got a girlfriend, was so happy and couldn't wait for this joyous adventurous time of the month to happen lied !! There was no joy , no extreme sports , no blue water spilling over wings and no rocking soundtrack oh no no no. Instead I had to fight against every male urge I had to resist screaming wooaaahhhhh bodddyyyyyyfooorrrmmm bodyformed for youuuuuuu as my lady changed from the loving , gentle, normal skin coloured lady to the little girl from the exorcist with added venom and extra 360 degree head spin. Thanks for setting me up for a fall bodyform , you crafty bugger

    The YouTube caption for Bodyform's rebuttal reads, "We are always grateful for input from our users, but your comment was particularly poignant. If Facebook had a 'love' button, we'd have clicked it. But it doesn't. So we've made you a video instead. Unfortunately Bodyform doesn't have a CEO. But if it did she'd be called Caroline Williams. And she'd say this."

    We just dare you not to cringe when she drinks that blue liquid.
