The Greatest Tampon Commercial Ever Takes Place at Camp

Finally, someone has made the best. Tampon. Commercial. Ever.

Thanks to Hello Flo for creating the “Camp Gyno,” a lovely tale about the dorky girl at summer camp who happens to get her first period and is suddenly awarded the “red badge of courage.” And yes, while the standout line, “It’s like Santa for your vagina!” is not totally kosher, it’s easy to imagine this little girl would be a hit at any Jewish overnight camp. Watch the commercial below.

Also, can we talk about what a great idea the “tampon care package” is? Three cheers for Hello Flo!
