Oh my gosh! I love it. Love it. Can I post it sometime with a link to you? Even though I know this is the reality, I still forget. Kind of like I forget that my clock in my bedroom is set 15 minutes fast. Even though I know it. Weird.

Hey you can post it with or without linking, GCQ. It's from You Tube, and Dove seems to want it distributed, so it's fair game, right?

Wow. That's fantastic. I feel more self-esteem already. (I think I'll go buy some Dove product now, actually.)

That comment got more sarcastic as it went along but really - that's awesome.

Drat! You beat me to it. I was going to do a post on the Dove series today too. I like the one with the young girls. Will you be upset if I do a similar post?

This ad campaign is brilliant.

Incredible! I think Dove's last few marketing campaigns have been stunning. The one with the "real women have curves" flavor to it is just fabulous.

Thank you for sharing!

Of course I won't be upset, Blog Antagonist, but thank you for asking. I really liked the Daughters video too, and I thought about posting it, but then I thought I really ought to write a full post about it if I posted two videos from the series, and I didn't have time last night.

You all are so polite, asking me if you can post about the same thing! Hehe. Please do post; I think the more people see this type of thing, the better. Besides, I love to watch people across the blogosphere talking about the same issue from different perspectives. I'm here for the discussion, ladies, so, discuss!

WOW!!!

I was only half watching, because I had some work stuff in the foreground, but that chick on the billboard was HOT!!!! Hubba-hubba! Grrrr-r-r-r-r! Man, if I had a million dollars I'd spend it all to get a woman like THAT!

WOW!

BTW, what was with that one frumpy looking chick at the beginning of the video? Was she supposed to be the hot chick's mom, or something? I don't get it.

And Dwight wonders why he's always ignored in the comment section of the mommy blogs.

Claudia said...

Watch me ignore Dwight:

Hey, I think we're headed in the right direction here, finally! It takes A LOT to get us going the other way (she says, not taking advantage of the oppoortunity to allude to any politicians in particular...)

I saw it on the today show. It is so awesome. I love it.

Jaelithe said...

Yes, everyone ignore that Dwight. He's so awful, I put him on my blogroll.

Linlee said...

That was very cool. Dove seems to be the only company that's starting to figure it out..

Lisa said...

That is so wild. I love seeing the before/after shots of stuff like that.

Jaelithe said...

Is everyone still ignoring Dwight? Good. Whatever you do, DON'T click on the link to Ruminations of a Misspent Youth that's in my sidebar. Because you, my completely homogeneous suburban female audience, know that you DON'T want to read a witty litblog that chronicles the struggles of a writer trying to get his first novel published. And you certainly won't enjoy the occasional pinch of pop culture criticism or dash of commentary on life in a second marriage with a blended family. Nope. That would bore the heck out of you, right?

GIRL'S GONE CHILD said...

That was great! Thanks for sharing!

Her Bad Mother said...

Remarkable.

Dove deserves total props for this.

Reba said...

That is so true. Most people know that this happens, but unfortunately it is the ones with self esteem problems that believe this is what the models really look like.

Jenny said...

Everytime I see it I like it more.

Yeah, no wonder our perception of beauty is distorted. This is my favorite subject lately. I'm saving this to show my daughter when she gets home from school.

It makes me pretty mad that the media does things like that, but at least we know about it nowadays. When I was growing up, I just thought there was something wrong with me.
