Onslaught

Surfing a marketing blog at work, I came across this new Dove ad. The last time I mentioned Dove was over two years ago to question whether or not a mega corporation in the beauty industry has the capacity to act as a feminist agent for change.



I'm still not sure, but I'm still pleased to see their efforts. However, that sentiment is based on the positive hope that their campaign is a genuine effort to change their industry, not a trendy marketing ploy to tap into progressive body image ideology.


And on a totally different note, I've been meaning to post the video for God's Gonna Cut You Down from American V: A Hundred Highways - Johnny Cash's last album. No particular reason; it's just been on my mind lately.
