My fun letter to Tetley:
I imagine you've already heard this, but just in case...
Your Tetley Red Tea commercial has beautiful music, and kind of beautiful images, except for one problem: the images appear to be made out of menstrual blood. Did any women look at this ad before it was made public? It's pretty gross...
We would like to thank you for taking the time to contact our Company. Although we were sorry to hear that our new Television Advertisement was not to your liking, at Tetley we believe that comments and feedback from our consumers are invaluable in upgrading and refining our processes, and we thank you for your input. You can be sure that your comments will be passed on to our Marketing Department. Once again, thank you for your valued feedback.

I wanted more! I wanted her to tell me she agrees. She must agree, unless she hasn't had a period yet. Maybe they use child labour to respond to customer emails. I wrote back that I'm looking forward to hearing from the marketing department.
