One thing I noticed about watching the Gillette ad after thinking about it: they do not show a single man shaving... it doesn't show anyone shaving at all. I think it would be incorrect to classify it as an ad since not a single person is shown using the product they sell. It is a definite political statement worthy of criticism. They should stick to selling razors and shaving cream (why bother shaving when it's so expensive to shave anyway).
@GregoryElliott I see your point, and technically you're correct. But at the end of the day their intent was to try to sell more razors. They are in a world of hurt due to failing sales and this was a desperate attempt to turn that around.www.wsj.com/.../gillette-bleeding-market-share-cuts-prices-of-razors-1491303601I think they will accomplish just the opposite.www.marketingweek.com/.../
Wait why would you go back and buy the product after they apologize? Their apology to you means nothing just like the apology a cheater would give you. Know why? They are a corporation and they care nothing about the consumer. All they are concerned about is making their board and shareholders money. It's simple business standards
Remember, Gillette is just one brand. Boycott all of Proctor and Gamble:en.wikipedia.org/.../List_of_Procter_%26_Gamble_brands
Video removed for violating terms Lol
@Oram52 Yeah. I'm not surprised. It's pretty much the same thing with the genders reversed. Obviously YouTube found it offensive while the original anti-male commercial is still up.

The definite takedown of this insidious advert:mumkeyjones.tv/.../
Followup thought:So why would Proctor and Gamble jump on this? Because P&G was not pitching the razors to men. They were pitching the razors to married or cohabiting women shoppers who buy for their husbands or boyfriends. Such women, unaware that they are being manipulated, watch such a biased ad and think, "Well some other men are like that, but MY guy isn't--and to prove it I will buy Gillette!"
Remember, Gillette is just one brand. Boycott ALL of Proctor and Gamble.
Maybe the fact that it wasn't even an ad. At no point was anyone shaving, no one was advertising a product. It was just Gillette making a gamble and trying to ride the "men are evil" bandwagon to look progressive and make money. They deserve to have people boycotting their products, they made a big mistake trying something like that.
@B15H0P ya as a consumer and years of using their razors and decades of advertisements. One wrong ad isn’t going to change my mind lolThat’s a little far fetched there
There are several cheaper options that are just as good out there. I've never used Gillette and never felt compelled to either, and this has only made me want to buy from them even less.
@B15H0P I’ve tried many. I even shaved with a straight razorAnd from my experience a Gillette razor is the best Razor other than a straight razorIt’s the only one I can use for like 2 months and it doesn’t dull out super fast. Shaves extremely well The product is so good. One ad won’t change anything
Absolutely correct man!
discriminated how? Its not saying anything about women.
I mean the add insinuated that women are the cause of the problem. It also but a high standard issue for men. But even though I still kind of had to agree.
But is it made by subsidiary company braun?
@madgoat Norelco. Which I been using for 20 years
