Happy and Period don't belong in the same sentence

Watching TV yesterday with my honey and I wasn't paying a lot of attention as I was folding laundry or whatever and I hear these two words in the same sentence: happy period.

I looked up and glanced at the TV. Yes, happy period.

I looked at my husband asked him if that is what it said or if I misunderstood it. Nope, he concurred. Happy period.

WTF?

Those words DO NOT EVER belong in the same sentence.

It seems Always pads paid some crack-smoking ad exec for this campaign. Now, I used to use Always until I discovered that WalMart's generic version works just as well for a fraction of the cost. But, the happy thing might have ooged me out. Looking at their website, it looks like the campaign is geared to girls and maybe it will work for them. It wouldn't work for me.

Happy period. Ha.

    I agree..happy and period are two words that DON'T belong in the same sentence.

    It was probably some MAN who thought of that crazy line.

    UGH!!!

    It is right up there with the "not so fresh" feeling commercials showing a mom walking with her daughter on the beach to talk about some "feminine deoderant" or whatever that crap was.

    I just picture a bunch of ad execs sitting around a table and smoking dope and coming up with this campaign. But, then again, some gals like the diva cup and that makes me cringe. *shrug* So, maybe there are gals who have happy periods. I don't know any of them.

    That was a commercial for Summer's Eve douche.

    I do not feel the need to defend how I know that, but will anyway. As AoM, Gadfly and most anyone else who has met me in person knows I have a near encyclopedic memory and have various random bits of mostly useless knowledge tucked away in my head.
