If it bleeds, it leads.


#3

There’s a Megyn Kelly/Trump mashup with this that is just waiting to be born.


#4

I would buy this product, whatever she was selling.


#5

I like it, it’s going to be HUUUUUGE!


#6

Hmm. Women shouldn’t be in positions of power because their biology makes them temperamental, amirite?


#7

I’m just confused about the “Not affiliated with Warner Bros.” disclaimer at the end.


#8

I see a missed opportunity:

Imperator Furiosa: You wanna get through this? Do as I say. Now pick up $tamponName and run.

Sigh, guess I’m gonna have to watch Fury Road for the 50th time…


#9

Because they didn’t pay to use the character?

Well this makes me think they should do a Tampon ad featuring guys in the good 'ol USA.

Many people will carry tampons in their first aid kit for ‘heavy bleeder’ type wounds - here is the pitch:

"Two guys in heavy combat gear - bullets flying - bombs going off

  • Guy 1 gets hit by bullet/shrapnel - starts bleeding horribly
  • Guy 2 says “hold on buddy I got ya”
    Guy 2 proceeds to pull out tampon and apply

Flash - 2 months later - guys are having a 'good ‘ol American beer’ at a bar
Guy 1 says “man you saved my life - what did you use to stop all the bleeding”
Guy 2 says “tampax pearl active - dude nothing stops blood better”
Guy 1 says “wow you’d think they’d show that in a comercial”
Guy 2 says “no way man - they can show people getting blown up but female blood is worse than cuss words”
Guy 1 finishes the shot with “Well if I need to stop bleeding Tampax will be my go to from now on”
Clink bottles of beer and go to product voiceover.

Pretty, lame, but here is a commercial completely produced by guys:

I tend to see a lot of Furiosa posts in my newsreader feed…
This was a nice compare and contrast to typical powerful female characters.

You sound a bit irritable… Moonsickness?


#14

Good thing that tongue of yours is planted cheek wise, Bucko! :slight_smile:


#15

Does it include a coupon for a kevlar vest for her boyfriend?


#16

That’s excellent… did you read the follow up about Max? Good stuff.


#17

Who should they get to advertise Dude Wipes?


#18

Amy Schumer.
