Farting CEO- A lesson learnt from last years viral video

banner-970x90f

Last year (October 8 2012 )a not  so bright guy named Richard Niell wrote to British feminine hygiene manufacturer, Bodyform, via Facebook. He felt he needed to voice his anger regarding how women hygiene product adverts were misleading and not true.

Below is a segment of his comment:
“Hi, as a man I must ask why you have lied to us for all these years . As a child I watched your advertisements with interest as to how at this wonderful time of the month that the female gets to enjoy so many things, I felt a little jealous. I mean bike riding , rollercoasters, dancing, parachuting, why couldn’t I get to enjoy this time of joy and ‘blue water’ and wings !! Dam my penis!! Then I got a girlfriend, was so happy and couldn’t wait for this joyous adventurous time of the month to happen …..you lied !! There was no joy, no extreme sports , no blue water spilling over wings and no rocking soundtrack oh no no no. Instead I had to fight against every male urge I had to resist screaming wooaaahhhhh bodddyyyyyyfooorrrmmm bodyformed for youuuuuuu as my lady changed from the loving, gentle, normal skin coloured lady to the little girl from the exorcist with added venom and extra 360 degree head spin. Thanks for setting me up for a fall bodyform, you crafty bugger”

The Facebook community quickly responded but Bodyform replied in  the best and funniest way possible.
