That Incredible, Gruesome, Jaws-Inspired Russian Tampon Ad Is Actually Not Real

•, Laura Stampler
 What appeared to be a Russian ad for Tampax floated around the internet. It shows two women taking a swim at the beach. Then a shark jumps out of the water and eats one of the ladies whole. The tag line: "Now leak proof."
Of course, viewers should have known the black bathing suit wearing woman was doomed from the start for failing to wear white in a tampon commercial.
Fortunately — or unfortunately — it turns out that ad is actually a fake. It was made to promote a film called "Movie 43." Despite an all-star cast including everyone from Gerard Butler to Anna Farris, it was widely panned and even referred to in reviews as "the Citizen Kane of awful."
