who is responsible for the red tea commercial? it's gross

Have you seen the new commercial for Tetley Red Tea? It is not nice to watch, it is gross actually. There is only one thing that I can think of when I watch this commercial. If you are a man, you may not get it, right away. If you are female and have your period, you will get it right away. See for yourself...



I know who is responsible. The commercial was developed at john st., Toronto, by creative directors Stephen Jurisic, Angus Tucker, art director Donald Vann, copywriter Gerald Kugler, agency producer Dale Giffen. Please note their names, it sounds like they are all men. The first time I watched it I was in shock. It's almost as bad as thew Campbell splashing soup commercial. I highly recommend doing focus groups guys, any woman would have said 'No, I don't like this ad."

Thanks Sara! Glad to know they got back to you but their responses are such bullshit. It's impossible to watch the ad and not see the resemblance to 'you know what'!!
