"The 30-second spot opens with a tortured-looking teenage boy telling his dad that he got his first period. It then cuts to a man rolling over in bed to reveal a blood stain on his sheets. Moments later, another man walks through a locker room with a tampon string dangling out from his underwear.

Thinx was forced to cut the blood-stain scene outright so the ad could run on national TV, according to a source. But CBS still rejected the spot because of its depiction of the tampon string, the source said, noting that squeamish executives found it too “graphic.”

Notice no one is objecting because of the absurdity of the ad...only about the "too graphic" aspects of it.

We've now reached unheard of levels of absurdity.
