Playtex Sport Pads

playtex

This not the first time skateboards have been used to sell feminine protection. Recall Stayfree Maxi Pads in 1978. Playtex has a print ad and a TV commercial in rotation for their Sport Ultra Thin line of pads. Who is this woman (Update: She is Nikki Rose Quinlan.) and where was this shot? Catch the commercial and the advert after the break. Somewhere in this post there’s a joke about helmets and pad nannies, but I can’t find it.

    Because you asked…. Her name is Nikki Rose. She’s an Australian model who also skates. 🙂 http://girlsskateaustralia.com/nikkirose/

    • Thanks for the info. I added it to the main post.

    • Aussie girls have no shame. In a good way. Probably comes from dealing with the segment of Aussie males that remain the worst sort of band-together little schoolboys for too long. But, though I haven’t been there in ages, I suspect those types don’t really gravitate toward skating, or at least transition skating… thus leaving it to the girls and other non-pussies.

        Aussie women have no shame…probably cuz they are descendant of a penal colony and have a hypothalemous twice the size of normal people

        • I’m not familiar with the hypothalemous… but her hypothalamus dunnt look out of proportion to me.

            It’s a walnut sized gland in the brain that regulates sexual desires, as well as impulsive behavior…Armchair psychobabble 101

            The “hypothalemous” is an imaginary gland in your head… there ain’t no such thing. What, are you trying to make skaters, or non-Aussies, look illiterate?

  5. Wow she’s hot.
