Birth control commercials are the worst. It's bad enough that birth control is a culprit behind hormonal outbursts, weight gain, breast tenderness, and blood clots amongst its users, but to add insult to injury, birth control commercials are often packaged as saccharine sweet, sexist ads that treat women as though they're too delicate to handle a straightforward birth control commercial. But the silver lining of the birth control commercial rain cloud is that it provides plenty of fodder for comedians to tackle.
Some of the talented women at Second City recently put together a hilarious commercial for the Birth Control Ninja, what could very possibly be the next advancement in birth control technology. The prospect of having a tiny ninja in your cervix is actually slightly less unnerving than the prospect of having a birth control-induced stroke!
