The "Bad Blood" plug spoof was created by two women who are fed up with policy makers treating their blood as well...bad. British comedians Cariad Lloyd and Jenny Bede want UK's Chancellor of the Excheqeur George Osbourne to lift the tax on tampons. So they created the video. #Brilliant?
"It's so sad to think you make us pay until we die, so ladies now for your bad blood, why not try using a dishcloth?" they sing in the chorus. "So until there's a tax cut/ Ladies, here's to our bad blood!"
The UK has apparently classified tampons as "non-essential" items since 1973, taxing them at 17.4 percent. The rate was reduced to 5 percent in 2000, but activists want it reduced to zero. In America, most states impose a sales tax on feminine hygiene products.
So what's a way to get people to make this change? Free bleeding, anyone?!
