A few people have been muttering about the fact that anti-sexist Dove adverts and playing on sexism Axe ads are coming from the same company - namely Unilever. It just never came out quite right, until this guy ( r y e clifton @ gmail ) borrowed Dove and Axe's own ads to show the contrast.

We got a nudge from Bernstein-Rein about their brand spanking new website. Entering the flashy flash, I worried that they'd make the common mistake of not giving users something to link to, but surprise they sorted us with links! Here you can see their DM shaped like a soup can and here you can watch the Mcdonald's commercial where a guy prances around the office in his skivvies and here you can check out the retro looking forgotten meat advert.

Adland: 

Emma Thompson isn't your regular celebrity. She's a great actress, and when she signs her name to a commercial, she's not shilling soft drinks but using her skills for good. In the viral ad I am Elena she tells the story of two womens lives, the same woman before and after her life is stolen as she is sold as a prostitute. It should make you uncomfortable. It does.
