This week’s Fun Video Friday features a topic that is, well, uncomfortable for most people. But that is part of the ingenuity behind it. HelloFlo, a tampon subscription service (I warned you), teamed up with writer/director duo, Pete Marquis and Jamie McCelland, for a hilarious long-form spot that brings some comedic relief to an otherwise taboo subject.
The video is chock-full of any pre-teen girl’s worst nightmare: feeling socially ostracized, getting your first period (or faking it), and dealing with your embarrassing mother. It’s awkward; it’s amusing; it’s hilarious.
Racking up more than seven million YouTube views in three days, this video is sure to make you jealous (or glad) that your mother never threw you a “First Moon Party.”
