Senza Pictures Hosts ‘Leakers Annonymous’ for PeriCoach

By Erik Oster 

Copywriter Sara Saedi and HelloFlo CEO Naama Bloom (here acting as a creative advisor) have made a name for themselves dealing with feminine hygiene issues with their ads for HelloFlo, but they move beyond the brand (and tackle a different issue) with a new spot for PeriCoach, “An easy-to-use, clinician-recommended, home personal trainer device and app to manage and monitor your pelvic floor exercises to help reduce or stop leaking and treat other symptoms of pelvic floor weakness.”

The two-minute spot, created by production company Senza Pictures and entitled “Leakers Annonymous,” examines a support group for women with bladder leakage issues, something one in three women deal with. As they trade stories and practice kegels, their frustrations become obvious. That is until a woman enters the room declaring it is her last meeting as she’s found a solution: the PeriCoach, which she describes as “like a Fitbit for your vag.” The clever line is easily the spot’s most memorable moment, as the ad otherwise suffers from repetitiveness, too long a runtime and generally lacks the kind of charm that made “The Period Fairy” stand out. If you’ve been following Bloom and Seidi’s work for Hello Flo, you’ll probably also recognize one of the actresses in the spot (the one who complains about her “ugly, padded underwear”) as the star of “Postpartum: The Musical.” Thankfully, the creative team decided not to employ bladder leakage-related musical humor for PeriCoach.
