I'd like to hear any thoughts on these commercials, just for the sake of discussion.

I find the first to be hilarious. The other two might be made more funny simply because the products are typical disposables. ^_^

These are ALL for Kotex. Axe to grind, perchance?

the company behind the videos are coincidental, i assure you. ^_^

what on earth is there to find funny about these commercials?

the commentary on marketing, particularly in the last 2. compare the the animatronic beaver.

idk, ever since switching to reuseables, everything related to diposables has seemed hilarious.

What I find hilarious right now is the recent Kotex promos.

Adverts that mock stupidity of tampon commercials...while they're still using the same tricks themselves.

Design your own pad - http://www.ubykotex.com/get_real/design/meet - because white pads are boring and coloured pads would make your period so much more fun. I'd suspect that this is Kotex trying to compete with cloth pads, only as it turns out Kotex are not actually going to make these coloured pads...so they're probably just screwing themselves over by suggesting that pads don't have to be bleached-white.

Pre-teen pads - http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/04/15/new-glittery-feminine-products-introduces-menstruation-tweens/ - great idea as normal pads are too big for younger and smaller girls, but it's just the fact that they're making these not to help girls but to get customers younger, brand loyalty and for as long as these girls are young they may have no choice but to use these pads.

"Adverts that mock stupidity of tampon commercials...while they're still using the same tricks themselves."
exactly!

Kotex likely wishes it could compete with cloth, but they shall never be the same things.

IDK about the the reuseables for younger girls. The fact that kids have periods before age 10 is tragic. Frankly, before 15 is way too early (I got mine at 12 and have never needed it, >_<). Pretty little things might help take a way the "ew" factor, but for self esteem and eco reasons, I don't see why these children shouldn't have some pretty little cloth stashes.

I don't understand what Kotex is trying to do with the video of the artist talking about colors. Is it just for the pad-designing game? Notice how everything the artist says can be applied to anything in marketing. *eye roll*
