Girl Fakes First Period, Mom Throws ‘Full Moon’ Party In Wickedly Hilarious HelloFlo Ad

hellflo_full_moon_party


Last summer you may recall seeing an ad which featured a young girl who becomes a powerful counselor at a camp. Why? Because she just got her period and she made it her mission to help guide other girls as they, too, experience their first period. Sort of a drill sergeant for menstruation, if you will. The video has accumulated over 7 million views.


Fast forward to this summer and the brand behind that viral success, HelloFlo, is at it again. In a new video, a girl is worried she isn’t getting her period in a timely fashion so… she decides to fake it. A little red nail polish on a maxi pad and the adventure begins.


Mom, of course, sees right through her daughter’s little lie and decides to have a bit of fun. She throws her daughter a First Moon party complete with a menstruation-themed pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game appropriately called, Pin the Pad on the Period. Mom even got a uterus piñata, a boy band and, yes, a Vagician. Oh yes, and Grandpa bobs for ovaries!


As the craziness reaches schedenfuede-tastic heights, the daughter confesses it was all a lie and mom presents the HelloFlo period starter kit. The viral video approach works especially well for a product that’s sold exclusively online on a subscription basis.


The work, much like last summer’s, further removes much of the awkwardness surrounding this particular moment in a girl’s life. And let’s be honest, wouldn’t every girl experiencing her first period like to know everything she can and have a kit on hand when her period finally arrives?

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
