Check Out the Gillette Ad Trending for all the Right Reasons | BellaNaija

Have you seen the trending Gillette ad?

The razor brand, known to be hyper-masculine, with the tagline “The Best a Man Can Get,” has a new ad out calling for men to be better.

The ad depicts all the little ways men are excused of bad behavior right from childhood, and advocates for better.

“Boys will be boys?” the ad asks. “Isn’t it time we stopped excusing bad behavior?”

While some have insisted the ad shows men in a bad light, others say the ad is doing something right: asking for better.

The ad has (as at the time of posting this), 584,000+ thumbs down and 224,000+ thumbs up.

Check out the ad for yourself.

    I need to stream this again cos I still don’t understand the overwhelming negativity to the ad. I need to really try and see this thru a fella’s eyes.

    But here’s a thought (and i have thoughts about this thought): do girls behave badly? is there (a) thing(s) chics do that they should be called out for? Or is this already to be assumed to have been covered under the “slut-shaming” “mommy-shaming” “PMS-yabs” category so we don’t have to start that up again?

    I’m going to say it: I think that when chics wear provocative clothes for instance, they’re sexually harassing (hetero-)guys. But, most of the fella’s (not all) have all said in response that they don’t mind, they likey…
    But that there.

    There’s nothing like bad press. Good or bad is still publicity.

    Whether there’s a thumb down from larger percentage of the people. The fact remains they’ve all seen the Ad and there’s a product image in their mind.

    Before people start squeezing themselves over the message, best remember Gillette is out to make money for themselves first and foremost, other things can then follow…. . Shikena

    The message in the ad is great. Love it 100% and we should have more stuff like this.
