The Not-So-Bright Ideas Department

Always' own marketing department has put my brand loyalty in serious jeopardy. Because dude, even without considering your customers who might be trying to get pregnant? Whoever told you it was a good idea to put "Have a happy period" on the backing paper was on SERIOUS drugs.

Yeah, that was the cause of serious double-takiness in me too.

But then I had the happiest period ever!

Re: OMG...
I'm really, really not. It's printed as a pattern on the little backing paper for the wings.

Apparently the campaign is supposed to be empowering. Waaaaaay off the mark, IMHO.

Fertility issues aside, I cringe every time I see that. But I love the product, so I try not to dwell on it.

Yeah, I won't actually be switching any time soon. It was just not something I was in the mood to have staring me in the face yesterday!
