"The Truth"

The UK is where it's all happening... On 8 October 2012, Richard Neill posted the following text on Bodyform's Facebook page:
Hi, as a man I must ask why you have lied to us for all these years. As a child I watched your advertisements with interest as to how at this wonderful time of the month that the female gets to enjoy so many things, I felt a little jealous. I mean bike riding, rollercoasters, dancing, parachuting, why couldn't I get to enjoy this time of joy and 'blue water' and wings!! Dam my penis!! Then I got a girlfriend, was so happy and couldn't wait for this joyous adventurous time of the month to lied!! There was no joy, no extreme sports, no blue water spilling over wings and no rocking soundtrack oh no no no. Instead I had to fight against every male urge I had to resist screaming wooaaahhhhh bodddyyyyyyfooorrrmmm bodyformed for youuuuuuu as my lady changed from the loving, gentle, normal skin coloured lady to the little girl from the exorcist with added venom and extra 360 degree head spin. Thanks for setting me up for a fall bodyform, you crafty bugger
So, being right crafty buggers, Bodyform released a video response, addressed to Richard, explaining things a little more fully; not thinking for one moment that the rest of us might be watching. Oh, no, not for one tiny moment. 
"There is no such thing as a happy period."
"...the blood coursing from our uteri like a crimson landslide."
Who knew?

This is a gem! I guess for all the wrong reasons, it's so well done!
Loved it!
