What were they thinking?
What don't you like about it?
Beats the new "8-blade" closer action guff (are we up to 8 yet?) and women stroking men's chins.
I don't mind it.
But don't go spoiling it by splashing on some Savage afterwards
Found my brand!
It's too early to have to watch drivel like that... I think I need to wash my brain.
What about it is drivel or offensive?
Perhaps Gillette should stick to advertising and selling little sharp blades and associated shaving paraphernalia and not try to tell people how to live their lives.
Or that their shaving paraphernalia doesn't set you on the road to saintliness.
About sums it up...
Preachy is off-putting.
I can see that the message fits with the target audience they're aiming at (young men/millennials), that don't think certain behaviours are acceptable any more.
That said, personally I don't like the implication that most men are this way. I think they've taken a risk with it, but I can see why as millennials tend to put cause over cost behind their buying decisions. .
I look forward to Tampax TV slots attacking their prior customers for alleged negative qualities relating to their sex.
The question at the top is a bit misleading though through placing it with this advert. A better question would be: do you think a political message in an advert would effect your purchasing decision? Because it depends on whether you agree with the message to if you would buy that product or avoid it.
Stay downwind or your birding days are over.
''We love supporting women during that difficult time of the month, but what we don't love is women that make false rape claims. We need to work together to end this blight on femininity.''
It’s a cynical ploy to ‘position’ a shaving product as having ‘values’ while pretending to support some kind of liberal agenda. As a a sop they’re donating £3million to some charity from their enormous profits ( if you’re a shaver you know just how expensive their blades are). You need to do some Media Studies.
Getting hammered on Youtube:
I don't need my media studies qualification to know companies will use popular issues and interests in order to sell more of their products whilst rarely having any real connection or interest in them.
Considering many people don't watch TV adverts these days, they've done a great job at getting people to view it.
Then hate it.
Will it be considered worse than the Pepsi one though?
Itll be interesting to see if they pull it
