This Taylor Swift 'Bad Blood' Parody Video Targets U.K. Tampon Tax
In hindsight, this Taylor Swift parody was probably inevitable.
Quick update from across the pond, courtesy of MTV U.K.: "Cariad Lloyd and Jenny Bede have created a pretty (ahem) bloody brilliant parody version of [Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood' music video]. Their purpose? To convince [British politician] George Osborne to get rid of the ridiculous 5% tax placed on very necessary women’s sanitary products, which are currently classed as 'non-essential, luxury' items."
They also note that a Change.org petition titled "Stop Taxing Periods" currently has over 242,700 signatures -- so people are pretty riled up about this, which means it's time for a parody video to educate the public.
Take it away, ladies.
