I have a really good one coming out soon. I'm at this table at a fancy restaurant with this bi-racial dame who is ostensibly my granddaughter. They're trying to hit a demographic here, but I was a little confused, I mean, I'm half Irish/half Swedish, I never married a Black man, and the twins married white girls. Anyway, she's crapping on about her period and says she refuses to wear a pillow, so I pull some of those Tampax "Pearl Girl" things out of my purse and tell her that even though it's too late for me to take advantage of the "Pearl Girl" tampons, that they're the best thing I've ever seen and she should try them. Then, the last ten seconds, the scene cuts to us sitting by a big pool, and I'm in a robe on a lounge chair, and she comes up in a bathing suit, hugs me from behind, and says, "Grandma, you're so wise, I couldn't be happier or more comfortable." We share a knowing look and smile, and the ad ends.
It's brilliant. Maybe I can get an Emmy for best tampon ad.
