One thing that most white-sheets-blue-liquid "feminine hygiene" ads certainly don't have enough of? Rap battles. Luckily, British menstrual cup company Mooncup is here to rectify the situation with its latest ad campaign.

Mooncup faces off against Tampon -- menstrual product vs. menstrual product -- in a rap battle that can only be described as epic. Tampon lashes out at Mooncup saying, "You're gross and weird and no one understand you. You get laughed at, more than clowns do," adding, "we can absorb everything that we touch." But Mooncup knows how to dole out an insult, pointing out that while Tampon is doing all that absorbing, she's also "causing dryness, irritation -- you can't do your job properly." Plus, says Mooncup, "We're reusable, you're out of touch. You're weak! We can hold three times as much."

Ouch. That was way harsh, Tai ... er ... Mooncup.

Do you think this ad is a vast improvement on other feminine hygiene commercials? Let us know in the comments!
