Feminist propaganda. To quote a FB friend: "Until Tampax does a commercial shaming women for their "toxic femininity", I'm just going to ignore this."

I'm not sure what part of this is dumber: Gillette insulting their customer base, or the predictable social media hysteria over it.  

I shave with an electric anyway, so I won't be taking part in the boycott of Gillette products that I'm sure is already brewing in Facebook-land. Laughing very hard

Why should I care what a razor blade company has to say about anything except razors?

I don't know maybe I saw a different commercial but it seems a harmless attempt at pointing out the obvious stereotypes and issues in society we are all up against. Not sure the point of mentioning Gillette other than the PR but otherwise its a fine message about change and why things are progressively staying static instead of improving.

That's what I saw, too. It's Gillette's commercial since their slogan is "The Best A Man Can Get"...it's a take on that.

I'm confused.

I'd never seen this ad before but I didn't find anything offensive in it nor anything I disagreed with.

But that said, do I think men as a class are currently vilified in the media?  Yes. 

But on its own I don't think this ad perpetuates that.

I see nothing wrong with the ad but hysteria and response to the commercial proved the point it was attempting to make and also there is no such thing as bad publicity

There is nothing inherently wrong with the ad. Everyone gets so easily offended. There are far more important things to worry about than this ad.

There's nothing "wrong" with the ad, but as a consumer I don't want to be preached to. You are a razor company. Tell me about your razors.

And, some of that stuff in the commercial is utter bs. Nothing wrong with boys wrestling. Nothing wrong with certain masculine things. You can be very masculine, have masculine thoughts, look masculine, etc...without being a jerk/sexist/mysogynist. A very masculine father/husband can still be gentle/loving. The commercial is painting all Maleness as inherently evil.

That is the entire point of the commercial.

Imagine - they do that commercial - with Budweiser -
Me, I'm switching razors - another brand -
that commercial was an overboard lesbian rant , if you ask me.
Shave off your toxic stubble / beard growth -
I wish now - my beloved Patriots - didn't play at Gillette Stadium.
Both Tom Brady and Bill Belichick -were told not to show their support for Trump -
Tom wore a MAGA hat....once. Boston Globe was on him like a 100 pitbull dogs - rabid !
Belichick once got a call from Trump - wish him luck - BAD

Lol wut?

My wife showed it to me, we both kind of teared up honestly. It's a great message that needs to be said. There's absolutely no need to politicize it, or for anybody to get up in arms about it.

The world needs to smoke a bowl together and chill for god's sake.

I really don't understand the commercial.
Gillette wasted all this money too because 95% of males this day in age forgot what a fkn razor is and beards have become the trendiest crap EVER!! Maybe they should learn to use them. So for guys to get upset at this commercial and not shave is beyond stupidity!!

I don't get online for a couple days and the Internet breaks because of this Gillette commercial. Thanks for posting it. I hadn't seen it before. The most upsetting thing is imagining having to sit through this near two minute commercial every 10 minutes on TV.

The weird thing is that most of these internet 'defenders of masculinity' have absolutely no idea what it is to be a man. There is a commercial that says 'Hey guys it would be great if you weren't such assholes' and they have a f%&king hissy fit.
