Gillette Ad

Gillette just released their newest add “We Believe” which focuses on the topic of toxic masculinity. Although the ad has earned lots of praise and publicity for the brand, it has also caused some other negative feelings for the company. Critics are upset with Gillette and say that the message is “insulting” and assumes that the dislike of women is a common thing among their customer base. The ad was released on Monday and begins with clips of actions you would put with “toxic masculinity” such as men laughing at shows making fun of women, online bullying, or a boss mansplaining his female colleagues idea at a meeting. The narrator in the ad goes on to say “ We believe in the best in men, to say the right thing, to act the right way. Some already are. But some is not enough. Because the boys watching today will be the men of tomorrow.” Throughout the ad, it then shifts its focus to the #MeToo movement and begins to show scenes of men defending others from hurtful or violent behavior, bullying, and stopping their friends from harassing. The brand then later stated on social media that while much is being done to do more, there is still much more work to do.
