Gillette’s New Razor Ad Goes Viral for Addressing the #MeToo Movement
Gillette released a new ad that went viral with over 7 million views, addressing the issues we face with gender and equality in an extremely powerful way.
One of the themes they discuss is toxic masculinity. The narrator makes a statement, revealing that using the same excuse, such as “boys will be boys”, will no longer suffice. They challenged their viewers, asking if what our society is providing our developing generation the “best a man can get” or the “best a man can do”.
They use their commercial as a powerful tool to address the consequences of how society has raised our men and encourages us to move forward by holding each other more accountable, to say the right things and to act the right ways.
Currently, the video is ranked #10 on YouTube’s Trending category. The ad has garnered a lot of support from fans and celebrities alike.
This ad is amazing and made me cry. Bravo @Gillette for taking a stand. This is the kind of world I want my son to grow up in. To all the men offended by this… take a good hard look in the mirror pal and ask yourself why. https://t.co/Ytyi5R01Nr

#Gillette ad is a reflection of where we are. If you are a man and offended by it then I suggest you are part of the problem. It’s 2019 and the message does not erode your masculinity it actually paints you a strong & responsible person
