This Russian Tampax Advert Is Slightly More Brutal Than Western Ones

Yes, Western tampon adverts might be full of lovely, gentle imagery - and complete and utter avoidance of, you know, what tampons are actually for - but not so much in Mother Russia.

That ad is both brutal and funny.

We were deeply disappointed that State TV there rejected our original Tampax ad, which we thought was bloody perfect for the Russian audience:

"Firmly grab your baBUSHka and Putin the tampon!"

Now THAT'S funny! I don't care who you are.

I look forward to the commercial that shows them being recycled as pacifiers for baby vampires.

It look like body parts went flying.

Ugh, it's a trick to watch a part of Movie 43! Are you a shill, OP, or were you fooled?

I'm interested to learn some people here find that part funny but not interested enough to watch.

Although it touches upon the myth that bleeding women are evil, dangerous, and dirty, and notice the 'dark' woman was killed not the paler 'white' one, —— It is funny.

Anyone know what the narrator says?

by Anonymousreply 806/20/2013

R8, the narrator is saying "We told you that you shouldn't go swimming during that time of the month...

The update says it's fake.

by Anonymousreply 1006/20/2013

It's a total fake ad.

It's "Movie 43". It says so in the title of the youtube clip. It's a movie. How else can I explain this to you guys?

That movie had terrible reviews so I haven't seen it.

I agree with R2 that it is brutal and hilarious.
