Remember that Dove ad called “Evolution” where you see a model being done up, her hair teased in umpteen different ways, her face painted and blushed and highlighted, and then you see her photo being touched up in Photoshop until she doesn’t even look anything like how she was at the beginning? Here’s a reminder.
They’ve done a new one called “Onslaught” and the video goes like this: you see a young girl, then you see flashing images of what a typical woman gets bombarded with every day. Images of fashion, beauty and dieting; false and exaggerated images. Then you see what women do to themselves to live up to those images, perpetuating a vicious cycle. Then you see the young girl once more.
The tag line is excellent. I shall leave it to you to watch it.
