A nice day at the beach spoiled by rain

10 July 2009

Marketing and advertising – it’s a funny old hit-and-miss kind of a game. What works on one campaign will be an unmitigated disaster on another. Sometimes, rather than being subtle and clever, the best approach is to just bash the potential customer over the head with the message.

On other occasions, like this one in the Netherlands, the best approach is to just bash the potential customer over the head with thousands of tampons.

    It would be funnier if they were used ones.

    I don't speak Netherlandese but I'm sure the spokesman for Libresse is laughing at all the wildlife as they swallow them. "Oh look at that funny seagull..." he says. Incidentally, http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1535581/four_things_to_know_if_your_dog_ate.html

    How about a beautiful woman swimming in the sea, cut to a shark swimming along, suddenly it's scents blood (we see a thin red taint in the water) and the Jaws music kicks in, cut to woman being torn to pieces by shark. Camera pulls back, test appears "Don't leave it to chance, when you want a truly leak free solution use [x tampons]"

    Yeah, but I couldn't place the origins to give credit, I'm guessing early 90's somewhere.

    You were very close, Joff. The "Nederlandse Taal" (the Dutch language) is spoken in the Netherlands, Belgian Flanders and Suriname. Frisian is a co-official language in the Netherlands too but I heard none on this film clip!
