Because nothing is funnier than PMS

February 19th, 2010 by Elizabeth Kissling

Print ad for Kitadol Período Menstrual (PMS medication)Ha ha! It’s funny because PMS turns women into hideous monsters! Just like Mexican wrestlers! Get it?

Yeah, I’m not laughing either at this ad for Kitadol. Neither is Copyranter.

    What’s wrong with being a Mexican wrestler? I happen to think they’re awesome. They’re funny and campy like American wrestlers, wear cool masks, and they even have one called SuperBarrio Man who fights evil capitalists. Man, if PMS turned me into one of those guys I’d be PSYCHED.

    Unfortunately, I think the process is a bit more involved than that–at least if you believe Jack Black 😉

    Ha! Excellent response, Sarah. Do you suppose the makers of Kitadol are afraid that if PMS turned a woman into SuperBarrioMan she’d never return? That’s probably why they’re selling the drug to heterosexual men instead of directly to women – note that the slogan says, “Get her back”, not “get yourself back”.

    This is one of the more clever, humorous, and thought provoking woman’s ads I’ve seen in a long time! Its about time
    a little humor was used for advertisements dealing with menstruation!!!!
    Most commercials or magazine ads that I’ve seen are over-acted (and poorly) not funny, and boring!
    Way too go !
