The hilarious PERIOD. campaign from social-impact agency Public Inc. and director Eva Midgley sees Crampus #DeckTheStalls this Christmas!

This PSA raises awareness for period poverty, a serious subject introduced to the audience by Crampus – a.k.a. Mother Bitchmas, Coochie Claus, or Santy Panty. She is a fabulous hell demon complete with bedazzled horns and a red satin power suit. While devouring tampon cookies and making it rain maxi pads, she delivers hard truths with sass in a menstruation monologue raising awareness for those without access to proper sanitary care. READ MORE about the spot HERE.
