P&G "#staybeautiful" (2014) :50 (Malaysia)

Grey Malaysia created an interactive online video for P&G's beauty range targeting moms. The interactive video allows you to skip through when a child is crying-- when you do you see an ad like the one above. The insight is simple: can skip over the ad, but young moms can't. They have no time for themselves. P&G knows this. It's important to note that Grey wants to stress "No children were harmed while making this commercial. We particularly looked for kids who were at a clingy stage and cried the moment they were separated from the moms. During the shoot, we simply asked the moms the leave the room to turn on the waterworks."

I'm including the link here so you interact with the video but I have to say as a parent I found this unbearable to watch. I can only assume moms will feel the same about it. Which is a shame. It's a smart insight. I just think it may come across as being polarizing.
