Marketing menstruation (part two): Revolutionary Bodyform Ad Uses The Actual Word ‘Blood’

Finally! A campaign with the potential to make me feel halfway sympathetic towards the product. Witty, sarcastic and featuring (gasp!) a mention of the word ‘blood’ – I think you’ll agree it’s prettttty revolutionary.

Does this Bodyform ad (because it definitely IS an ad) mark the end of white shorts territory? Let’s hope so.

God, I hope this makes it to TV.

UPDATE: This excellent piece by Arwa Mahdawi in today’s Guardian demonstrates that the ad is neither original nor revolutionary. Oh well. I still think the jug of blue water is inspired.
