More Free Tampons

// 27 May 2009

Lil-Lets have out-done themselves now. After last week’s “Free Tampons” offer, they are now offering a free box of tampons with some free sample packs to give to your friends. But this offer breaks new ground in also offering a do-it-yourself “dip test” – their brand and a rival brand of tampons with two test tubes and some suspicious-looking blue liquid for you to recreate the thrills and spills of being in a sanitary product advert! Really! I suggest take the freebee and use the test tubes as shot glasses!

But in the video… both brands absorb all the blue liquid! So who cares which way they expand?

And when would I ever need to mop up blue liquid anyway?! Ah, puzzling.

Well it’s handy if you’ve bought a bottle of Blue Curacao (or if you’re on a budget = window-cleaner) for cocktail-making…

Or what I should say is – why? What colour are your periods? Mine are blue…

Is it the same blue liquid they used to use on nappy adverts? Obviously our Victorian sentiments dictate that the other primary colours are far too close to bodily fluids to be appropriate viewing material.

I don’t have periods anymore (yay for free Depo Provera!) but wouldn’t mind the test tube shot glasses.
