HelloFlo has created the funniest tampon ad you’ll ever see. Period

Well, have we got one helluva viral video for you this afternoon. It’s clocked up more than 21 million views on YouTube, it’s made headlines all over the globe, but it doesn’t feature quirky cats, crazy stunts or talking babies, it’s all about tampons.

Yep that’s right, HelloFlo has created a brand new viral video for its tampon subscription service and period starter kit, called ‘First Moon Party’, which puts an entertaining and laugh-out-loud spin on the often awkward subject of periods.

We won’t spoil the fun for you too much, but in the video a girl’s mum throws a ‘First Moon Period Party’ for her because she lied about starting her period. It features unforgettable quotes like, “hiiii, do you do make vagina cakes?”, “do you know how hard it is to find a uterus pinata?” and “periods don’t have glitter in them.”

We love the fact it’s made the whole office laugh, share the video and… most importantly… go find out what this quirky tampon company that laughs in the face of convention is all about.

If you’re a fan you HAVE TO check out HelloFlo’s original video, Camp Gyno, which is nearly as awesome.

One YouTube commenter summed up HelloFlo’s viral video idea perfectly when she wrote: ‘Guys, you are awesome. Thank you for not shaming us women for our period, thank you for making it fun, and relaxed and awesome. Especially for young girls because so many shame them and make them feel embarrassed and like there’s something wrong with them.’ AMEN TO THAT.
