Kotex Reality Check to Break the Cycle

Kotex in the USA is challenging women to get real about their periods with “Get Real”, an interactive campaign online at ubykotex.com and YouTube. The site includes a gallery with candid personal stories, eye-opening social experiments, snarky ad parodies and sharp observations that reveal how girls really feel about periods. The most popular video on the site is “Reality Check”, a dig at the unrealistic images and emotions used in advertising.
