Girl Regrets Faking Her Period In Hilarious Tampon Commercial

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / June 19, 2014

I have a distinct memory of being 12 years old and seeing one of my closest girl friends go off to huddle with another girl at school. “What were you talking about?” I asked her later. “Oh, we both just got our periods so….” she explained, her voice trailing off in such a way that indicated that I just couldn’t understand. I was so jealous, dying to be part of their special menstrual club. Of course, when my period finally arrived for the first time a few months later, I was horrified and burst into tears. Ahhh, hormones! This ad for Hello Flo — makers of menstrual care packages — does such a perfect job capturing the confusion of puberty, where all you want is your period … until you finally get it, that is. [YouTube]
