To The Max(i)!

Warning: The contents of this blog post refer to "feminine hygiene" products, so if you have some squeamish males around, you might want to give them a heads up before playing the video.   It's nothing gross, just sort of creepy. . . .

I found this ad so incredibly creeptastic and weird, I could hardly stand to watch it (which of course, is why I'm making all of you watch it!).  It was completely awkward, and if I ever met a man who was like, "Hey, do you want me to show you how maxi mads work?"  I'd be running for the hills (no matter how cute he was).  I can see what they are trying to do, but I think we should let the Old Spice guy keep his own little niche without impostors trying to crash the party.
What are your thoughts? 


  1. Holy moly I laughed so hard at this!

    I agree, creepy, to the max(i).

  2. Okay, this is hilarious! I don't think maxi pads are the appropriate product for this approach.

    Definitely creepy.

  3. very creepy. and he reminds me of that big vampire dude from Twilight (not in a good way).


    Thanks for that, Courtney! :p

  4. I burst out laughing. I think my husband would rather die than film a commercial like that.
    In happier news, whenever I want to hide something from him (like cash) I stick it in my tampon box. He NEVER goes in there!

  5. Hahahaha wow. if you turn off the sound and play the "medical degree" and "taking the shirt off" part in slow motion, it's not so bad. ;)

    But I have to give him props for being brave enough to talk about pads when all his bros are gonna see it. lol
    Love you.

  6. Rebecca - Right?!

    Nicole - I agree. This is not the way to sell me pads!

    Holly - He kid of does remind me of the scary vampire! Ha!

    Sarah - I made Jimmy watch it when he got home and it was like he was watching someone cut up a body or something. He kept cringing and looking pained. I like the idea of the tampon box safe. I might have to borrow that idea. . . .

    Kels - True, he is cute. It's just awkward acting and everything. I bet he made enough money on it to shut up his boys for a while. : )

  7. Hahaha! My husband would rather stab his own eyeballs out with a fork than appear it an ad like that. He goes red if I mention time of the month....very reserved Englishman.

  8. Seriously? He's explaining the fine art of wearing a maxi pad? I couldn't actually watch the video because I'm in a hotel room with my 15-year-old son.

    Wow. Just wow.

    And by the way, I love the title of your blog. Visiting from the LBS bbq.

  9. I couldn't get the video to play, but I'm pretty sure I know which one this is. Super creepy!

    I was just stopping by from LBS. Hope you have a fabulous Labor Day Weekend!

  10. Facing50 - That's hilarious! I got a great mental picture from your comment. Hahaha!

    Grace - Kind of. He's does a test (you know, the standard blue liquid thing), and then talks about the various reasons you should be using Stayfree pads. It's disturbing. Thanks for visiting!

    Karen - Uber creepy, right?! Thanks so much for the comment!

  11. Ok, that was creepy. But at least I know now that Always works better. I just grab whatever's on sale at the moment and never noticed a difference. :D
    THANKS COURTNEY!!! hahaaa
