Beauty Pressure commercial by Dove – young girls’ self images / self-esteem

In commercials, political videos, psa, Uncategorized, Videos, viral videos on December 12, 2009 at 7:17 pm

This ‘Dove Film’ is meant to show the pressures on young girls/women to fit that thin, big breasted, hot stereotype.  Everywhere you look, you see these images and it definitely has an affect on our youth.

This video is excellent in many respects.  The content, images, and clips are right on. The music and sound effects are great. The transitions and timing are excellent. They made me uncomfortable but not uncomfortable-enough to stop watching. The first time I watched the video, I remembered the goal and the organization.  Well done.

Kudos to all involved in this film…

Thank you to The Dove Self-Esteem Fund but we need this in the United States also!

Drinking With Bob is interesting example of building an online brand that is “real” and not afraid to take a stand.

From DrinkingWithBob.com:

Bob Thompson a.k.a. Drinking With Bob is a comic and TV personality from New York City. Based in Queens, Bob performs his comedy routines, rants and original music in clubs and bars throughout much of the Metropolitan area. He also produces, writes and stars in his own TV show called ‘Drinking With Bob’ on Queens Public Access. The show has been airing for 7 years and has gained a legion of loyal and devoted cult fans who tune in each week to experience the RANTS , see the comic sketches and hear music.

I enjoy Bob’s videos. I don’t always agree with them, but I do, through the screaming and yelling,  listen to what he is saying. Consistency. Bob is Bob.

Through the years he has shown to be sincere and real.  He has build his brand and leveraged it into a gig on WAC Radio in NY.

Congratulations Bob.  Stay real.
