The Period Party of Your Dreams

by Emily Robinson

In the world of HelloFlo, girls are so excited to get their period that they fake it with glittery red nail polish on a giant maxi pad in order to win the respect of their equally adolescent peers.  

If you’re unfamiliar, HelloFlo is a company that assembles care packages geared toward preteens that are just about to get their period. And they include the works – tampons, pads, and snacks (yes, SNACKS). 

In this little video, a mom lets her daughter knows she is not to be fooled by nail-polished pads and throws her a period party to teach her a lesson. Their super cheeky and hilarious ad totally confronts the menstrual cycle in direct terms that brands like Playtex and Kotex shy away from.

Some choice quotes: 

“Hi, do you make vagina cakes?” 

“Pin the pad on the period!”

“Do you know how hard it is to find a uterus piñata?”

“Your grandpa is bobbing for ovaries like a champ”

Check out the whole hilarious ad below:
