Coffee Squirrel

dove onslaught


Ok. I know that the campaign has its hypocrisy. This is the same company that cuts down palm trees and sells skin lighteners to Africans and Indians. This is a powerful piece of film, though. Also a sister company to the folks who sell Axe body wash (have you SEEN their commercials?)

I know we've all got to face things we'll never be. There are days when it's overwhelming, though, and I want to gut anyone falls for all this cookie-cutter rump-shaking crap.

In closing: Good film. Hypocritical source. Still conflicted about 'looks'. So there.

ETA: And check the Greenpeace parody which illustrates the loss of trees and land due to Dove's beauty products (they are still a company, after all). Link below:
