Unilever brand Dove is making light of the new White House administration’s freshly minted catchphrase, ‘alternative facts’, in a print campaign that sees the brand tell obvious lies, all in the spirit of satire.
Ogilvy London created the ads, with claims such as ‘New Dove antiperspirant increases your IQ by 40 points’, mocking the administrations sweeping contempt of the free press. The brand of course joins a series of company’s now taking pot shots at POTUS.
Hopefully the ASA does not get wind of the tongue-in-cheek campaign which is admittedly outright lying to consumers.
The work gained recognition from Ogilvy Worldwide chief creative officer Tham Khai Meng.
