Thirty years after first introducing the tagline “The Best A Man Can Get,” Gillette is taking a fresh look at what it means to be “the best” and how we continue to portray those ideals in a modern way. Because in a world where the actions of the few can taint the reputation of the many, we know there’s work to be done – together.

“Gillette believes in the best in men,” said Gary Coombe, president, P&G Global Grooming. “By holding each other accountable, eliminating excuses for bad behavior, and supporting a new generation working toward their personal ‘best,’ we can help create positive change that will matter for years to come.”

Today, Gillette is introducing a new marketing campaign and charitable program dedicated to celebrating the stories of men making a positive impact, and to inspire others in the process. The program-leading short film ,entitled We Believe, begins with a compilation of actions commonly associated with “toxic masculinity.” More importantly, it then showcases examples of how men can take actions large and small to create meaningful change for themselves, their loved ones, their peers and set the right example for the next generation of men. Because it’s only by challenging ourselves to do more that we get closer to our best.
