🔴 "Get it up there girls" this advert should be removed

Before the 9pm watershed, I had just finished my evening meal and saw this Tampax advert. I say saw, I just listened, but that was enough for me. I'm sorry, I think this should be removed from our screen under the grounds of bad taste. Does the fake audience really have to join in with "Get it up there girls"?

Seems I am not the only person who found this advert cringe worthy

Re: 🔴 "Get it up there girls" this advert should be removed

Young girls just starting out on life's journey need all the help and info they can get, things can be very confusing for them and need straight-talking to advise and educate them, as a male, yes cringe-worthy, but there are several `products` that are advertised that can make one blush somewhat. As for the product advertised here, a lot of users (apparently) do not use them properly and this is probably a way saying why.

Anyone remember when the time honoured manner of disposal was to chuck them up into the high level trough cisterns in the girls` toilets until they blocked the flush pipe? You could never have a lid on those cisterns that ran the whole length of the five cubicles,because one of them was always going wrong. And if you were not fishing for used sanitary products, you were trawling for fag packets & dead matches.
