Bodyform is a feminine hygiene company in the UK. That means that they make pads and tampons. When you mix that with the internet, bad… or sometimes funny things, are bound to happen.
As with similar companies in the US, their commercials tend to rely on metaphors and sugar coat what women go through while going through their periods. One man on Facebook decided that he would mock the imagery of these ads and have some fun at the company’s expense.
Well, Richard learned the same lesson that I learned growing up in a house with my mother and two older sisters: You do not mess with a woman about her period or you will pay the consequences.
The CEO of the company decided to call Richard out and respond to him via Youtube… the result was pretty frickin epic:
Official Video Description and the Comment that started it all:
i Richard. We loved your post on our Facebook page. (https://www.facebook.com/Bodyform/posts/10151186887359324). We are always grateful for input from our users, but your comment was particularly poignant. If Facebook had a “love” button, we’d have clicked it. But it doesn’t. So we’ve made you a video instead. Unfortunately Bodyform doesn’t have a CEO. But if it did she’d be called Caroline Williams. And she’d say this.
Do let us know if we can help you further…

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
