Hey, at least he gives oral.

(click ad) "His name's Vlad. I like him, but he only wants to date me every 28 days..." You may say 'ewww,' but blood is blood to the undead. Not at all surprisingly, the creative team from Switzerland that dreamed up this bloodcurdling o.b. tampon ad is all-male. But at least, like this French shark-infested Tampax ad and unlike every American tampon ad ever made, they've acknowledged that blood does in fact come out of a cooter.

update: The ad agency contacted me to report that this ad was never published. Also, a rep from o.b. responded in the comments.

ok, for serious. as a woman this makes me involuntarily cringe and cross my legs in imagined pain.

sooo... what the ad is saying is that a scary aggressive undead man is going to *puncture* my vagina with his um, "teeth". yeah, that totally doesn't make an already messy and painful monthly event seem more messy and painful. *rolls eyes*

jeebus! did the ad team not even *know* a woman, like, anywhere?

between this and the shark ad, which carries the horrifying connotation of a shark fricking ripping apart a woman's crotch with its sharp sharp teeth... I'm afraid to go into the feminine hygiene aisle.

"That's fantastic, Bob, fantastic. But wait 'til OB sees the one with a mosquito with a tampon as a proboscis, perched on that chick's bare ass! Keep it up Bob. You're not fired anymore, for now."

I’d like to clarify that this image is not one of our advertisements; it was drafted by our ad agency in Switzerland and was rejected, as it does not reflect our values and standards.

Hilarious. Shouldn't have been rejected.
