HelloFlo’s Commercial is Not Your Average Menstrual Product Ad


Compared to the terrible tampon ads that are out there (full of women running on a beach and laughing with salad while the narration discusses the torrent of blood evacuating your ladybits over pictures of mysterious blue fluid) it’s always nice to see something novel in the world of period equipment. Enter HelloFlo, a tampon delivery service that sends along candy and Midol and the things that you really need when you’re on your period, and their adorably funny commercial featuring the youngest gynecologist we’ve ever seen.

    This is what a collaboration between Chuck Palahniuk and Judy Blume would be like.

    In my head, I was pronouncing it “hellaflow”
    Which would also be a good reason to need such a service.

    She’d make a great personal trainer. I’m no stranger to whining and moaning and rolling on a bed when my flow hits me like a bat out of hell.

    This is seriously the best tampon commercial ever. And that company has a great idea, too.

    The only odd thing about this is that tampons are frequently uncomfortable or painful for virgins to use – I assume that most of these 12-year-olds are virgins.

    Haha, this is hilarious and brilliant. I loved it.

    Tampons don’t go up that far. They work fine.

    I can only assume:
    -you use a unique type of tampon or
    -you have an incredibly long vagina
    in any case, you seem very confident speaking on behalf of every woman who has every been a virgin. Are you a Ob/Gyn?

    Tampons are about 2 inches long, about the width of a finger. And yes,my doctor said virgins can use tampons, as did my mother. You seem to be very confident speaking on behalf of virgins. What makes you right and I wrong?

    If tampons hurt, you’re doing it wrong.
