A young woman in London had a ‘period explosion’ in the middle of the street after asking strangers if they could give her a tampon or sanitary towel.
Captured on film, she first approached members of the public saying, ‘I was supposed to come on on the 15th and it’s the 20th. You men don’t have to go through this! You men are so lucky, you don’t have to go through this like us women, we have to go through this every month.’
After complaining of her terrible cramps and asking a lady to feel her temperature, the woman, wearing stiletto heels and a short skirt, crouches down clutching her stomach.
Then a jet of ‘blood’ bursts out from between her legs and shoots on to the tarmac, leaving a trail of red liquid as she staggers across the road.
‘She’s on her blob!’, someone yells helpfully, as the woman shouts ‘I just had a period explosion.’
People look on with horrified expressions, many of whom previously apologized for having no tampon to offer.
Others laugh, while one kind lady rushes to help, getting out tissues and kneeling down to wipe the bloody residue from her ankles and shoes.
Now, the observant among you, who have basic knowledge of human anatomy, will have noticed that women don’t actually suddenly get their period like a fire hose which needs to be stoppered up with a tampon. At all.
(And, for those who are still confused, woman bleed gradually over a period of several days).
The video is a ‘social experiment’ created by Trollstation, a group of Youtube pranksters, and the woman in the footage is actress Amina Maz.
They wanted to find out how people would react to the woman getting her ‘period’ – even though it looks more like she has started to hemorrhage in an extreme medical emergency.
The resulting video is horrific – but about as scientifically accurate a depiction of biology as teenager Ryan Williams managed when he claimed that ‘tampons should not be free if u can’t control ur bladder’.
