Tampon Subscription Service Is ‘Like Santa for Your Vagina’

Period talk can be a little taboo at times, except for in this viral advertisement for tampon subscription service, HelloFlo.

The video was created without an agency by two former BBDO team partners, Pete Marquis and Jamie McCelland.

This hilarious video shows a young pre-teen girl becoming the ‘camp gyno’ when she gets her period for the first time.

“It was beginning of summer, and no one knew me at camp,” she begins. “I was a just a big random loser. Then, things changed. I got my period. The red badge of courage!”

“We came up with this idea over a bottle of wine and a bunch of Thai food one night,” HelloFlo founder and CEO Naama Bloom tells Adweek. “I was listing out my insights about the period experience and shared the story of the girl at camp that my friends and I all turned to for advice. When Pete said ‘You mean like a Camp Gyno?’ we basically knew what we had to do. Only humor could tell this story in a way that would be relatable, endearing and shareable.”

The video definitely has some great lines that is ridiculous and funny. What do you think?

Top 40+ Creative Ads Made to Stop You Smoking

To tell you the truth, I don’t believe that even the most creative anti-smoking advertisement can make you quit smoking after you see it. It’s just not  how the things work.

When a smoker runs into another anti-smoking ad, often the reaction is – “yes maybe it is cool, but it won’t make me quit – it’s a waste of time and money”. Well of course, one single ad won’t change your mind in a second, but it does create the awareness that smoking is a BAD thing, and when a message is being repeated over an over again – it find its place somewhere deep inside your unconscious mind.

It takes time, but some day it may build up, and it will seem as though as YOU have an idea – “smoking is really a stupid thing to do, I quit!”. What may seem as your own idea, could be a huge job of those creative antismoking ads you used to see everywhere.

So, if you want to help those hooked on smoking, make this list of “Top 40+ Creative Ads Made to Stop You Smoking” VIRAL. Digg it, blog it, share it on Facebook, give thumbs up on StumbleUpon, etc.. – the more people will see it, the more people we will help.

The Making Of Heinekens Amazing Soccer Swindle

Heineken Guerrilla Marketing Soccer Example

If you’re a soccer fan, you’ll understand. If you’re not, well, suffice it to say that Europeans (Italians, especially) are (in general) crazy about soccer.

So when Heineken staged a fake classical music concert at the same time as a crucial Real Madrid vs. AC Milan game on October 21, there was no chance that any real soccer fan would be there…except if their girlfriends, professors and bosses convinced them (by any means necessary) to attend.

What happens next is sheer hilarity, and a nice example of a high-budget guerrilla marketing campaign from Heineken. Suffice to say that more than 1,100 soccer fans got swindled, 1.5 million people saw their reactions on live TV, and Heineken received five million visitors to the site devoted to the event — and a great deal of news coverage for their troubles.

As far as what happens in the video itself, we won’t spoil it for you; see it below and enjoy.
