This one little thing will completely change the way you watch tampon ads.

What if maxi pad ads used red liquid instead of blue?

That’s the age-old question, isn’t it? We all used to roll our eyes when that weird blue liquid (cordial? juice?) was poured from a test tube onto a pad to demonstrate ‘flow’ and ‘absorption’, but does anybody really want to see a more realistic red version used?

Members of the UCB comedy group decided to find out. This parody maxi pad commercial is just like a regular maxi pad commercial in every way except one…

And it makes a big (and slightly icky) freaking difference:

Too much?
