hello flo

  • The kid in this commercial for mail-order tampon company Hello Flo pretty much kills it as her summer camp’s menstruation major domo. (Jezebel)
  • Why, it’s a flying carpet for doggies, of course. (PSFK)
  • The time Norman Mailer was on Gilmore Girls, and other amusing examples of literary figures appearing in front of the camera. (Flavorwire)
  • Well, you can’t say the folks at Coca Cola didn’t ask for it in this 1970 exchange of letters, in which they requested that Grove Press stop using the quote “It’s the real thing” in an advertisement for a book about Harlem schoolchildren—on the grounds that it would cause brand confusion. (Letters of Note)
  • Maybe this will make him disappear. (Slate)

    The response to Coca Cola’s letter makes me so incredibly happy. As does the idea of the flying carpet for dogs — which is only slightly spoiled by the fact that it probably couldn’t lift my 70 lb. pup even an inch.

    I never in my life even considersed the possibility that I would see a menstruating Dora the Explorer doll. Boy, was I wrong.
