    Eh, I know lots of people hated it with a passion - and don’t get me wrong, I disagree with lots of it - but to me it was nothing more than a crap advert. Call your target market all terrible people and then ask them to buy your product? Just seems to be poor marketing (or a publicity stunt).

    It wasn’t so much the marketing, but the blatant slap in the face showing a clip of the young Turks as a positive thing.
    And a few other race baiting and an overall theme that “toxic masculinity” is bad.

    “Toxic masculinity” isn’t real. The problem with young men is a lack of masculinity and role models, and constantly being given a barrage of “men are evil, men are rapists”. And we wonder why Male suicide is increasing.

    It’s also started a big debate on P&G products and their ethics. From animal testing to child Slave labour.


    Once you go woke, you go broke.


    Dollar Shave Club for the win.

    I totally agree with everything you’ve said mate, it just didn’t piss me off like others. I was expecting to be furious when I watched it after hearing from others, but all I thought was, ‘what a crap heap’.
