I couldn't find a video, which might actually be a blessing.
Been seeing a lot of this ad lately, some annoying 'fashionista' chick, dancing around talking about how her hoo-hah hygiene doesn't get in the way of her 'busy lifestyle' because she uses Tampax.
The broad reminds me a bit of a skankier Lisa Bonet, mostly because the dance steps she does are like something out of the 'Cosby Show' '80s. She does it all with one of those stupid 'stuck a finger in a wall socket' hairdos, a 'bored/smug/sneering' expression on her face, and, typical for a 'fashion expert, sh*tty, technicolor polka-dotted crap that only looks passable on actors who play 'Batman' villians, or 'Doctor Who'!

What's up with these stupid songs and the oh-la-la?  Didn't they sing oh-la-la in a yogurt commercial too?  Tampons, yogurt, blah, blah, blah.

"Purple is in", implying they're actually trying to stylize tampons? I'm not a woman, but I'm trying to visualize a scenario where a girl would actually brag about what color of tampon she was wearing that month. Do they have girl "pull and compare" nights where they show each other how their tampons look and how absorbent they are?

I might be stupid here, but why do they need a RESEALABLE wrapper?

Maybe they're using "in" in the literal sense of the word. 
 
I see that, at the end of the video, Youtube is offering a whole bunch of these commercials starring this same woman.

For some reason, I'm getting a lesbo-vibe from the girl in this commercial. Anyone else?

I mean, if you're advertising a feminine product, you probably should try using a woman that's more feminine, right?

They're tampons for Christ sakes!!! We all know what they're for and where you stick them (regardless of what color they are!), so Madison Avenue, please stop making advertisements for tampons (and for that matter, things like sanitary napkins & other menstrual products, baby & adult diapers, douches, poo-poo medication, pee-pee medication, dick medication, pussy cleaner {NOT CAT SHAMPOO!!!}, yogurt that makes you leave a shiit regularly, etc.)!!! AngryDeadAngry
 
Next thing you know we'll be seeing adverts for enemas, proctology practises, vaginal surgery, etc.) ShockedOuchShocked

Don't we already? I remember older commercials for Fleet and Preparation H plus a recent one for defective trans vaginal mesh surgery. Whatever TVM surgery is?

See, deep down I KNOW TVM is a serious medical item used for serious operations....

But for some reason the name makes me think of a giant ballon sack they stick in post-op trannies to simulate a vagina. XD

Why is she dancing around and being all happy? Hasn't Kotex already made it clear that that's extremely unrealistic? Girls on their periods most likely don't want to jump up and down and have tons of energy bursting from their pores, like this skank - they just want to wear comfy pants with a sweatshirt and slippers, watching a movie at home eating chocolate until their body stops bleeding. At least, that's how my friends and I are.
I like purple a lot less after it being related to a tampon. You know, a tampon, that thing you put in your vagina to soak up all that blood? EW. It's not an accessory to show off, and it's not attractive.

I've identified the most annoying part of the commercial. It's that claw-dance she starts doing around 4 seconds in (right after she wheelbarrows the "Purple is In" circle off the screen). Who the hell dances like that? It's made worse by the fact they obviously digitally altered the speed which makes it look even more unnatural.

THIS! Who writes these ads, men? Ask an average woman and she will tell you that she does NOT feel like dancing a jig when she's bleeding like a stuck pig for five days. Besides, all that jumping up and down could dislodge the thing and that wouldn't be a pretty picture.

I'd say more a troglodyke.

So you can wrap the used one when you throw it away...otherwise you have a nasty used tampon just laying in your bathroom trash can

That's what I thought. Where would you dispose of those things?

In public bathrooms, there is usually a metal or plastic box in each stall for disposing of them, but at home, they go into the bathroom trash. Unless you have a dog who gets into the trash--I have been lucky enough to have had dogs who didn't care about the garbage cans, but I have heard stories from my friends involving pets and used feminine products. Yuck.

i've heard so many horror stories from friends about stuff their dogs have eaten. i'm a cat person. the strangest thing my cats do is go through my kitchen garbage and munch on chicken bones (if i don't block off the door). don't think they're well-behaved though, i have two cats who have broken so many things.

the moral of the story i suppose is if you have a dog, don't use tampons (or pantyhose, that's one of the things i've heard about from a friend).
