Check out this advertisement. Yes, I know, but watch it all the way to the end. It’s really interesting to see how the resulting portraits and it’s a message we could ALL use. So: well done, Dove. Of course I do think this puts too much emphasis on outward appearances as a sign of self-worth, but that is unfortunately still the reality of our culture. The only way to change that is little by little and I think this add accomplishes a step in the right direction. To celebrate us as we are, now as we see ourselves. This might be the first time I’ve ever said this about an ad, but next time I’m in the store and I have a choice, I’ll be buying Dove.
