Following on the heals of the banned "roger more" ad in the U.K., there are now swelling complaints surrounding a commercial for tampons. In the spot, which follows a 70s children show format, a woman demonstrates the benefits of this new tampon while the older host gets all excited about it.

This morning, I made my regular daily vist to Apechild where there is always a treasure trove of the new, the bizarre, the hilarious, and the sexy. Today I find a link to a Danish Fanta Web site where you can add subtitles to a collection of film clips and end up with your own personalized commercial. It's hilarious. Try it. Become a creative director!
