Bodyform is a feminine hygiene company out of the U.K. The line feminine hygiene usually sends men, like myself, running. The topic makes us uncomfortable and uneasy and there's not much we can do about it.
One man – Richard Neill – decided to take a stand against the feminine hygiene ads he had been seeing, complaining that they show women having great adventures while masking the horrible, terrifying truth. He probably expected his somewhat comical complaint, which you can see after the jump, to fall on deaf ears. Surprisingly, Bodyform came out with the honest truth and produced one of the most awkward, yet brilliant, commercials a man might ever witness.
Lesson learned. Keep your mouth shut. Well played, Bodyform. Thanks to IDisposable for sending this gem our way.
Curious what Richard Neill actually said to cause such a stir from Bodyform? Read on below.
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 …..you 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.
