How is it a commercial? There wasn't a single razor in it.
@Benedek38 It's not necessary for the product to appear if the brand is old and known and people already knows the product attached to it when they see the logo or hear the name. So it's a commercial, one that doesn't follow a traditional approach and goes more in line with those who try nowadays the trendy "emotional advertising". However this commercial did pretty bad the concept of emotional advetising. Maybe accidentally wrong... Or not
"It's not necessary for the product to appear if the brand is old and known and people already knows the product attached to it when they see the logo or hear the name. "So by that logic, you could have Gillette just making an ad about why you should vote Democrat, and then say "Gillette" at the end - BOOM! "It's just a commercial guys!"The fact is that there is no point to this commercial. The most point I could make of this is facial hair = toxic masculinity, but even that's a horrible message. Just imagine if Veet or Victoria Secret made an ad about domestic abuse, mental health issues and substance addiction in single motehr households (it's extremely prevalent) and said "Women have to be better". Imagine the outrage. Would you say that's just a commercial too? Where's the line between commercial and propaganda?
@Benedek38 Lol, I only said it's a commercial. I never said it's ok, but I expected worst because of people comments. It's done with bad taste or has too much of certain ideology, yes. But still a commercial. A really bad one cause they are not appealing to their target but repealing their target. The line between propaganda and commercial nowadays is too thin due to what I mention before: "emotional advertising". Emotional advertising tends to not show the product and instead share a feeling or thought of any kind as a way to empathize with the target. As said, in this commercial they didn't connect with men but repealed many and some who already were clients. Now you might think that I have double standard and with a reverse situation I would get mad. I'm sorry but I'm dead inside and would feel equally apathic if veet or whatever brand did that. I would see it's equally bad oriented to the target and find it pointless but wouldn't feel hurt like some people seem to be. But yeah, some women would feel hurt with the reverse situation and not with this one. I would find those women as silly as the men who feel hurt with this and probably wouldn't feel hurt the other way.
Ok, I'll say it differently. I don't think this is a commercial. At all. A commercial is, ultimately, made to sell products. There is no chance in hell this could have increased sales. Nada. Nill. Anyone with more than two brain cells would have known after the several backlashes against companies spouting progressive propaganda ("Get woke, go broke") that this will ONLY end badly. There are two possibilities. 1) Someone at Gillette wanted to get on good terms with the powers that be, and made an ad to appeal to the progressive, leftist elite2) There's literally zero competent marketing executive at Gillette. Ockham's razor says it must be the first option. But sure, go ahead, and close your eyes. Be the useful idiot that you want to be. But when they'll come for something you care about, and you'll be screaming and wailing for help - there will be nobody to help you, because everyone else is in the gulag already.
@Benedek38 Now you are overreacting and insulting. End of discussion.
Not any explanation would help with that I'm afraid.
@esotericstory if you can't explain why you're upset, then i can't take your opinion seriously. how many times on this website have you seen someone willing to listen to your point of view even if they may not necessarily agree?this is why we never grow as a society. people like you never want to express your opinions. maybe id even change my mind if i saw what you see. what a waste.
I can't explain why I'm upset for a fact because I am not upset. My opinion is in the men's opinion's section, I'm sure you will find it.
@esotericstory some are simply talking about how they don't like how the men are portrayed. however, it's building on all the stuff that went on in the media and hollywood and they're saying all you good men out there, let's be examples.are you not a good man? why are you so mad at those in the commercials correcting the men in the wrong? i thought the commercial was corny asf, but i don't see why people like you think it's polarization. sexual assault is sexual assault.
Its not polarization but it will contribute to it.
@esotericstory how? talking about what's been affecting hollywood is going to polarize by talking about it in a commercial?
When non-political entities like brands take political stances instead of staying neutral it contributes to polarization.
@esotericstory sexual assault is not a political stance.
Yes it is, everything is political man is a political animal.
@esotericstory at this point you're reaching. i read some good points and all yours was is "sexual assault is politicalllllll" go read a book dude.
Go read Aristotle's texts about man being a political animal.
@esotericstory if it links rape and molestation to a political party, link it to me by all means.
Toxic masculinity has affected me all throughout my life, not be able to show emotion, having to hide my depression and anxiety, having certain expectations of who I have to be, is it any bit surprising the suicide rate is higher in men, but no it is my fault and the fault of all men
Its a thing
Toxic masculinity is a great thing.
Ever read lord of the flies?
@Repa33 Yeah I have.
The book is a perfect representation and analogy for it
@Repa33 It's also a fictional story.
@Repa33 If it's fictional, then it isn't reality-based. The characters were also children. If you want to see what happens when men end up on an island in a survival situation, there are many reality shows where men and women are put on separate islands to see how well they fare. Most of the time the men co-operate and are successful, with good shelter, plenty of food etc. whereas the women are usually not as successful or co-operative with each other and everything goes to shit for them.
Reality shows aren't real and proove nothing. Just like the book
@Repa33 Reality isn't real... Right. At least you admit that the book has nothing to do with reality.
Never said it was reality. Just that it was an example of toxic masculinity
@Repa33 I see it as more of an example of childish stupidity. A lot of the things people label as being toxic masculinity have nothing to do with masculinity, nor are those behaviours exclusive to men. In that book the kids bully each other and you say that's an example - do girls not bully each other too? Of course they do, and people wouldn't call it "toxic femininity" because that would be ridiculous, it's obvious that bullying has nothing to do with femininity. Well the same goes for toxic masculinity.
I forgot that option
How? There wasn't a singke razor in it. Many of the man in it had beards.
