Tampax

Irish Lady Products

Agency: TBWA

Description

In response to the recent banning of Tampax’s ‘Tampons & Tea’ advert on Irish television, the agency has created its own brand of ‘Irish Lady Products’ – taking aim at the complaints made by members of the public. The original Tampax ad, which features a talk show host instructing viewers on the correct way to insert a tampon, received 84 complaints. As a result, the Advertising Standards Authority of Ireland pulled the advert on the grounds it had caused ‘widespread offence’. TBWA\Dublin’s response advert for ‘Irish Lady Products’ features a parody tampon pack with warnings that the product may cause ‘pearl clutching and disapproving glances’.
TBWA\Dublin’s response advert for ‘Irish Lady Products’ features a parody tampon pack with warnings that the product may cause ‘pearl clutching and disapproving glances’. The idea came from a frank video chat discussion among staff about the ASAI decision and what it says about the treatment and censorship of women in Ireland.

This professional campaign titled 'Irish Lady Products' was published in Ireland in August, 2020. It was created for the brand: Tampax, by ad agency: TBWA. This Digital medium campaign is related to the Health and Personal Accessories industries and contains 3 media assets. It was submitted over 2 years ago.
