The sketch comedy troupe 'Hammerkatz' created this hilarious tampon ad, which claims to be created "by the all-male advertising team at Tampax." The ad seeks to show women that, while periods are annoying and confusing at times, every other women shares a similar experience. The ad claims to be made by men, in order to address the most common misconceptions about periods in general.
The tampon ad satirically addresses common questions and annoyances such as why and when women get periods, what tampons are used for and how often periods occur. While most women seem to have an understanding of their own bodies, many mainstream ads disregard common language and proper descriptions of the process a women goes through during that time of the month.
Women can relate to this ad because it uses millennial actors who address tabooed topics in an open and engaging way. This commercial addresses the most unattractive, yet honest outcomes of the female menstrual cycle.
