Gillette’s Ad About “Toxic Masculinity”: When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

The Gillette ad campaign about “toxic masculinity” marks a new era of marketing where advertisement is mixed with aggressive social engineering. Here’s a look at the deep absurdity of this ad campaign.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

Gillette, a company that made billions by selling overpriced razor blades to men for decades, has launched an ad campaign targeting “toxic masculinity”. And the ad is … toxic. Through stereotypes and generalizations, it accuses 50% of the human population of terrible wrongdoings and calls for a drastic modification of its behavior. The admitted goal: To shape the men of tomorrow. Welcome to an era where marketing mixes with Orwellian propaganda.

On Gillette’s official website, the campaign is described using a vocabulary coming directly from social-engineering think-tanks.

Thirty years ago, we launched our The Best A Man Can Get tagline.

Since then, it has been an aspirational statement, reflecting standards that many men strive to achieve.

But turn on the news today and it’s easy to believe that men are not at their best. Many find themselves at a crossroads, caught between the past and a new era of masculinity. While it is clear that changes are needed, where and how we can start to effect that change is less obvious for many. And when the changes needed seem so monumental, it can feel daunting to begin. So, let’s do it together.

It’s time we acknowledge that brands, like ours, play a role in influencing culture. And as a company that encourages men to be their best, we have a responsibility to make sure we are promoting positive, attainable, inclusive and healthy versions of what it means to be a man. With that in mind, we have spent the last few months taking a hard look at our past and coming communication and reflecting on the types of men and behaviors we want to celebrate. We’re inviting all men along this journey with us – to strive to be better, to make us better, and to help each other be better.

From today on, we pledge to actively challenge the stereotypes and expectations of what it means to be a man everywhere you see Gillette. In the ads we run, the images we publish to social media, the words we choose, and so much more.

“A new era of masculinity”? “Types of men and behavior we want to celebrate”? This is all pure social engineering.

Before we go any further, let’s look at this ad.

The Worst Men Can Get

Instead of selling a product, the ad sells an idea: Men are bad and they need to change. To do so, it uses classic marketing and cinematography techniques to vilify an entire gender by highlighting its supposed toxicity.

The ad begins with men of all ages looking at themselves in the mirror with a guilty look on their face.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

Hey, random person who happens to be male,  you’re bad and disgusting. You need to change. Just stop and listen to what Gillette expects from you.

As they stare in the mirror, the words “bullying”, “sexual harassment” and “toxic masculinity” are heard in the background. Appropriately enough, the words all come from mass media.

In a disapproving tone, the narrator says: “Is this the best a man can get?”. Guys, you’ve let Gillette down. Gillette is not happy with you right now. You are not living up to the tagline it used for decades to sell overpriced razor blades as a near-monopoly.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

A young boy cries due to text messages as other boys run through the living room, destroying everything. Damn you, boys!

Is online bullying truly a “masculinity” issue? Don’t girls also send hurtful text messages? The answer: Yes, they do. Because, this is a  jerk-versus-not-jerk issue, not a male versus female issue. But the ad is all about distortion and manipulation. It maintains an awkward distance with reality that makes it difficult to watch.

Throughout the ad, young boys are depicted as wild, out-of-control animals that cause havoc everywhere they go. The message: We need to train boys to follow our agenda since birth. If not, they will become destructive.

Watch out world, school boys are coming through and they’re full of toxicity.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

No, this is not a scene from a horror movie. It’s an ad for overpriced razor blades.

The ad then proceeds to explain how men should modify their behavior in order to be “better”.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

On TV, a fictitious sitcom depicts a man being grabby with a maid.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

Two men laugh exaggeratedly at this scene.

What actual TV show depicts a man assaulting a maid and who is laughing at those scenes? The answer: None and nobody. It’s a fake scenario. The message of this scene: Mass media needs to be tightly controlled to prevent the depiction of any behavior that is deemed “toxic” (it already is). Moreover, one shouldn’t laugh or be entertained by things that are now deemed toxic.

In other scenes, the ad presents individual jerks being jerks … and blames 50% of the human population.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

The guy says: “What I actually think she’s trying to say…”.

Once again, this is not typical “men” behavior, this is typical jerk behavior. And, sadly, both men and women are capable of displaying it. This is why wise people say that people should be judged by the contents of their character, not by their race, gender, and so forth.

That being said, this is how Gillette portrays men:

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

As two young boys fight on a lawn, an infinite line of men standing before a grill, with a dumb look on their faces, repeat the mantra “boys will be boys, will be boys, will be boys”.

This scene screams out “men are all the same”. It is the definition of generalization. Most fathers know the difference between children playing and fighting. And most of them act and discipline their children accordingly. However, this scene lumps all “males” together and paints them all as inept fathers.

Other scenes call for men to interfere with other men in order to protect women. Or something. I’m honestly not sure.

Gillette's Ad About "Toxic Masculinity": When Marketing Mixes With Social Engineering

When an attractive woman passes by, a toxic male wants to talk to her. Then, a guy comes out of nowhere, stops him and says “Not cool, not cool”.

What’s the message of this scene? Men should physically stop other men from talking to women? Is this the kind of society we want to live in?

The narrator says:

“And there will be no going back. Because we believe in the best in men. To say the right thing. To act the right way. Some already are. In ways big and small. But some is not enough. Because the boys watching today will be the men of tomorrow.”

The ad actually says that “some” men are OK but most of them are toxic. Wow.

Of course, the ends with a celebration of #metoo. Thank you, Gillette’s marketing team.

Another creation of Gillette’s marketing team.

Judging by comments on YouTube, most people hated the ad.

So why did this razor brand insult its core demographic? Isn’t it the marketing equivalent of suicide? Is it a way of getting media coverage through divisive controversy? Yes, but there’s more.

Social Engineering

Although the ad is based on a ridiculous premise, it is also rather terrifying. It signals the coming of a new wave of marketing that is not about selling products but about modifying behavior according to a specific, clearly defined agenda.

In short, it is social engineering.

Social engineering is the use of centralized planning in an attempt to manage social change and regulate the future development and behavior of a society.
– Definition

As the definition states, social engineering originates from “centralized planning”. In this case, the world elite. There is a reason why the same exact agenda oozes from everywhere. And Gillette, which is owned by the mega-corporation Procter & Gamble, is directly connected with the elite.

Indeed, P&G is a consumer goods company that owns dozens of brands found in households across the world such as Tide, Crest, Pampers, Bounty, Vicks, Oral-B and many more (it also participated in price-fixing cartels, child labor, and forced labor). Its leadership is part of elite organizations such as the Bilderberg group, where major world policies are decided.

In short, the messages contained in the ad do not originate from the good conscience of the people at Gillette. It is a verbatim manifesto of the elite’s agenda that is being pushed through various platforms.

For instance, the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina features the same core message: Masculinity is bad and it needs to be punished. Through various scenes, the series depicts men as a horde of violent brutes who cannot act in a reasonable matter.

What is the purpose of this propaganda? What is the end game? Are masculine males a threat to the elite? Yes, but there’s more.

We are currently living in a unique era in human History. The very concept of “gender” (which is the very core of our genetic makeup) is being completely redefined and replaced with artificial constructs to serve specific social engineering purposes. The goal: To debase humans as far a possible from their natural state. The result: A population that is confused, depressed, unhealthy and thoroughly unbalanced that is extremely suggestible to mass media campaigns such as this one.

True Christians know that the END GAME is satan is trying to get as many people as he can into Hell. He continues to steal, kill and destroy by deceiving the masses using the elite while perverting God’s Word! It’s quite simple when you really look at it, whatever God wants, satan wants the opposite! If you’re a weak minded individual with no faith nor foundation you will fall for whatever the corrupt media and elite’s agenda!

RBelk

Very well said! As Muslims we also believe this to be the case.

“O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitan (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents (Adam and Hawwa’ (Eve)) out of Paradise,” (Quran, chapter Al-Aaraf: verse 27).

“. . . and follow not the footsteps of ‘Shaitan’ (Satan). Surely he is to you an open enemy” (Quran, Chapter Al-Anaam: verse 142).

Laura Chocolate

Didn’t your prophet marry a 6 year old when he was 53 and consummated the marriage when she was 9? I don’t think you can compare Christ to Muhammad.

Be Fair

Wasnt Mary like 12 years old when she had Jesus which was also the age Jews back then married of kids?

Be Fair

im getting negative thumbs down but no one can refute these facts. Mary was a child when she had Jesus. Anyone care to speak against this? or do you hypocrites only rebuke through Christianity when its convenient?

Bly

I don’t really believe Jesus was the result of an immaculate conception. I also feel he was the son of Source like we all are and was human in every way. His message and his ability to get people to follow his example was likely a threat to the elites of the time and they took him out. Now about Mohammed marrying a child and Mary getting knocked up as one, you can’t look at those situations through a 2019 lense. It was a different time back then. Life expentancy was low and people got to making babies way quicker. Children also matured far faster I would imagine considering the harshness of life back then. Sure, 6 seems still a bit on the young side, but if we are all being honest, there isn’t any actual proof that this story is true. My 2 cents. Peace and love.

Anonymous

people died in there 40s 50s….cannot make comparisons re biology…the argument goes if girls get fertile at XY age well thats OK look at US girls that get married as young as What ?….across state lines…you go to jail……WHO is right??
I don know?

fornow

because mary being married off at that age (while still wrong) is extremely different than a man, a prophet, who is literally the figurehead of morality for an entire nation and religion. get me? you’d think with mohammad being so perfect, he WOULDN’T rape a child, but in fact muslims bend this narrative to suit them all the time. what… you a muslim yourself? cuz i can’t think why anybody would defend that trash religion unless they were a white liberal muslim lover or a muslim themselves. also, one last thing, just go read about mohammad and aisha and you will be disturbed. it’s a FAR FAR FAR cry from mary supposedly being married at 12 (of which we have no historical texts unlike mohammad) MAYBE TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Jennie

Agreed!!!

Kristy Hiralal

The world is really messed up if we’re still fighting against each other after reading about this crappy ad. Men against Women. White against Black. Christians against Muslims. That’s what the Elite wants!… If we believe in God and have good values then we’re on the same side! We need to unite against these forces, not divide.

Lora

You repeat propaganda to defile the prophet. She was 14, which was normal at the time

Be Fair

Watch your mouth Lora, thats not my intent,Jesus is our Lord and Savior. She was between those ages and 2 years makes no difference. And like a said, 12 was normal at that time and even younger. That wasnt the point,the point was to stop using Christianity for your own personal attacks and agenda towards another group..That would be called “propaganda”

Aldhfh

You’re so deluded. Jesus HIMSELF said ‘there is no man or woman in me’ Galatians 3:28 look it up!

Mxxafdu

Why split hairs brother? Merely to condemn? Relax and stop being so outwardly judgmental. So many, many people I know go on’Christian Missions’ but are as mean as snakes in their actual life with everyday interactions. In today’s society, there are way more ‘weak-minded’ people than ‘strong-minded’ people. The ‘weak-minded’ people who marry ‘weak-minded’ people produce the same. They do not know the difference because being weak and dis-respecting everyone is their ‘normal’. So my question, ‘sister or brother’ Christian is why not let the Lord judge…isn’t taking care of yourself full time job enough? Isn’t keeping your own family (house) in order a full time job? How do you have that much time on your hands that you have time enough to judge someone else unless you are not focusing on your own, personal family? Isn’t that enough to take care of?

Glenn Smith

Mxxafdu I’ll answer your question quite simply. If everyone just kept their knowledge to themselves there would be no room to learn. As Christians we teach and preach the gospel in and out of season to all! The Body of Christ includes ALL not just our personal family. I suggest you pick up a bible and READ!

Skumchops

Paul wrote that, though I choose to believe it was inspired by God so you aren’t 100% wrong there. It’s pretty typical to take a vague scripture and apply your own meaning to it, but it doesn’t make it any less stupid.

Do you really think that Paul meant when you’re a Christian that you no longer have a gender?

Ann McKalip

That was not Jesus speaking in Galatians 3:26-29. It is apostle Paul. He is saying that among the Christian’s, there are to be no distinctions (like Jew vs. Gentile, free man vs. slave, male vs. female) with only certain Christians eligible for salvation. All are considered children of God, with an equal hope and promise of salvation through Christ.

Maybe this is some kind of propaganda against whites, and maybe white men are just their main buyers (focus group). Or a symbol of the middle class with a house and grill in the yard.

Of course, and the black man tries to stop the white man from hitting on the woman, LOL. They reverse everything, hails to black men for still objectifying women though.

Deflect Much?

Reverse everything? Black men objectifying women? as if white men arent the #1 in that field. Are you people EVER held accountable? Hugh Hefner? PlayBoy? Pent House? The whole P--n industry? How many billions of dollars is made off that alone when it comes to whites objectifying women? Even Toddlers and Tiaras and Dance Moms does it with children. Lets not mention the Dark Web and whites with children. Think white women dont notice this?

Girl, please

I agree! The whole commercial was bad white males and then a black man shows up as the gentlemen. Which is pretty common in my world, it was just so blatant. But I guess black men have been demonized for decades on TV, except for my childhood crushes or hero’s. Like Sugar Ray Leonard, Mr T., Marcus Allen, Bo Jackson, Dr Cosby(well that didn’t turn out well but like u mentioned Hugh Hefner) Will Smith…I’m 40 so that’s who I recall. But white men take the cake w history on sexualizing women. Black men and Latinos are right there too. It’s not a race specific thing. MEN LIKE WOMEN, MEN LIKE BEING MEN. ITS OK.

von_krieg

I meant, I AM GLAD BLACK MEN STILL OBJECTIFY WOMEN, black men are the only men left who will still try to hit on any b---h they see, it’s amusing. white men are afraid of women now or are to busy texting.

And the black man stopped the white man from harassing women…inversion

This ad was never meant for men to consume. The outrage from the video doesn’t make any difference to their target audience— Mothers. Mothers who make the household buying decisions and undertake the majority of the so-called nurturing. They want the next generation of boys in their pockets and this will be done via their own mothers. – The mother embracing her ‘scared’ son as other children run past. – Look at the 0:48 second mark of the video (use the keys , and . to move frame by frame). In the very last frame of the audience-scene, a spotlight hits the old woman’s eye as if to say you are now illuminated (older woman). – No sane father would stop a play fight with happy smiling children. A mother might consider it violent and put a stop it tho. – The little girl saying “I am strong”. This is a message for women, not for men. It makes me wonder if this outrage was predicted, and we are acting out our part in a huge social experiment. Controlled outrage. These people don’t do this by accident. They may have even wanted this outrage as part of their campaign. Other… Read more »

Stepping stones

What they are basically doing is trying to blur the gender lines and merge it into one “genderless”, that’s the agenda of this ad along with the media; break down Men’s roles by nature and promote feminism, while doing the opposite with women. We’re living in the end times and it’s obvious, get right with the one & only god before you’re resurrected on judgement in bad stance.

D D d

Don’t you see, women as a group have already been split up themselves by the Divide And Conquerors? For example, in
those who play around in leopardprint and such as a dresscode, and
those who will climb the corporate stairs in designer-outfits matching their male coworkers expectations of a serious bussines-suit.
And these are just two of the standard oldfashioned ones.
The mothers I have left out as there have always been working moms too, all over this world. Whatever media told us.

Anna

Your example is not an example of the division of women as a group. I can easily combine these three groups into one rule: women work today if they need it (mostly for financial reasons) and dress the way they need to make money efficiently (which depends more on the profession than the political views)

D D d

I think I understand you. I meaned it to have more emphasis on the playing against climbing the corporate stairs, the clothing is symbolic. But there might be a point in dressing in animal-prints to work..

Really

The point is they like those clothes.

Rick R

The white guys were pulled up and taken to task on their behaviour by black guys. A good little black kid sat watching whilst the white boys fought on the lawn. The guy teaching the ‘I am strong’ mantra to his daughter was black. It is basically saying white heterosexual males are the evil in the world. Let me tell you, if you were to and work in an isolated, enclaved village in West African National Park like I did, you would see more chauvinism, misogyny and unequal opportunity than you do in any western town or city. You would still see love and cohesion, too. It is all human social behaviour, but that doesn’t fit the narrative.

von_krieg

AND thats a good thing, now you know why being a muslim is not so bad, though muslims are going to be genocided by the elite as they are to Pagan and natural. White men are the first to go extinct, we are playing video games instead of keeping our women in line, for every half naked woman you see on the street, it means we have failed as men. Hail the coming end! no more humans!

I remember reading a story a few weeks back about UK now banning ads that promote “toxic” or “stereotypical” gender roles, e.g. women cook or doing house chores and men play baseball or fixing cars/trucks. Nowadays, some ads switch the roles between genders. A kitchen scene that usually features a mother and her daughter preparing meal together is now replaced with father and son. A boardroom scene which usually depicts a man as the boss is now replaced with woman. A cosmetic ad that usually uses female model to sell their lipstick or eye-shadow now switch to male models. And so on. While I personally have no problem with men cooking or doing dishes and women become bosses in their companies, I am somewhat disturbed at how that the media consistently takes a shot at traditional gender role, blatantly tries to debase and smear it and paints it as awful and archaic and outdated, as if it’s so wrong for boys acting like boys and girls acting like girls. So what if boys like to play ball and girls like to put on makeup and play dress up? What’s wrong with a woman cooking and doing dishes? Why is it… Read more »

The ruling in the U.K. still allows genders to be in theie traditonal roles, but it can’t used as a stereotype, ie man relaxing while woman slaves in the kitchen.

I was brought up with mostly males, although I had a very strong female presence in my mother and grandmothers. Because I was surrounded by so many males, I learned their communication style very young and took it on board for myself. Has not served me well into adult life with females…I’m very direct, women tend to revert to passive aggression and relational type bullying, I don’t understand it. I’ve met toxic men and women, women far outnumbering the men….they can be so mean!! I had a lesbian boss who was just awful, she was a man hater and detested any woman she deemed inferior to her, so when feminists go on about the ‘sisterhood’, I’m always perplexed as to what sisterhood they’re referring to.

While I think it’s odd for Gillette to make an ad like this, I agree with the general message that men should be held accountable for their actions. I’m from a Latin American country and machismo is still very much accepted and even encouraged, while women who denounce it are labeled as crazy. Of course I know not all men are bad, and my friends didn’t take offense because it’s *not* directed at them. But those who did feel attacked are the ones who want to keep being jerks and getting away with it. Maybe in the USA society is different, but over here this ad hit the nail on the head.

“Toxic Masculinity” is another meaningless catch phrase such as “Man ‘splaing”, Man Spreading”, Global Warming”, Climate Change” and the outdated “Fossil Fuels”. (Fossil fuels are not real, that was a lie perpetrated by the oil companies ino order to foster the “unreplaceable resource” that they concocted decades before.The Earth creates it’s own oil continuously, the Russians knew this but played along with the rest. This process is known as “Abiotic” oil.)

Repeat a meaningless phrase until the cows come home and eventually it becomes part of the vocabulary. Tell a lie and make it huge and it will be believed, eventually. This is just Programming (Social Engineering) is now becoming in your face and there are idiots that think this is a “good” message, after all, who likes bullies?

interesting how the article talks about social engineering being used in these ads, when ironically that’s how the men were manipulated into these bad behaviours in the first place. So somehow the attempt to fix it with other social engineering is worse? Not the best ad campaign attempt, but at least they tried.

The tone of this advert overshadows those of cold-war-propaganda in old movies.. It is in the same key as that of atombomb-drill-instructions.

Or: read their words, that sounds different from watching them with moving pictures in front of you.?

girl awake

I think the ad uses bullying (which is a real issue that causes much suffering) to connect it with “masculinity in general” and with “men flirting with women”. The advertising implies that all these things are in the same package of bad behaviours: toxic masculinity. The only bad behaviour shown in the ad is bullying, but the ad makes it seem like men acting like men (for example, the men before grills), and that men flirting with women are also toxic behaviours, that is, the ad suggests that masculinity and heterosexuality may be toxic! I think there’s nothing wrong with a man acting like a man (doing manly things) or flirting with a girl on the street. That guy was not trying to rape her or anything. So yes, the ad transmits a bad subliminal message. Most people act and think like cattle, so most viewers may be subliminarly influenced by the ad.

kerri copeland

its about men taking responsibility for their actions. its ok to flirt but when she says no, then it means no, for to long media and society in general have told men if women say no it means maybe or yes, to keep trying she will give in, in hte end. that women cant be trusted with their own emotions

Fiofiofioletta

You know, it’s really pretty easy. Before you say or behave a certain way towards women, ask yourself this: suppose a STRAIGHT man said or did the same thing to you? Would it suck? If so…DON’T DO IT.

Also, “flirting” is NOT harmless when it is unsolicited.

I have read many comments on this Article; And it seems to me that this is another one of the Globalist Plots to reach their “Depopulation” goal of 500 Million World Wide. This is in their AGENDA 21 United Nations Plan. They say they have to reduce the population world wide by 90% and have it done in ten years. What better way to get this done than to turn the Women against Men and the Men against Women. The result being NO CHILDREN. Read some of the Quotes below from the Globalist AGENDA 21 Plan, then UNDERSTAND why they are doing this. “The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization, and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary.” – Eco92 Earth Charter “Depopulation should be the highest priority of U.S. foreign policy towards the Third World.” Henry Kissinger “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” Ted Turner, in an interview with Audubon magazine “In order to… Read more »

There will be plenty of real men left, and they will not be turned by the propaganda. One of the main points of ads like that are to make people believe they are in a minority. Same reason there has to be a queer in every TV show, to make them look far more common than they really are at less than 5% of the population in real life and 25% on TV.

Agreed, now you know why men are being erased, PISSED OFF men can stop what is happening, but there are few of us left and we don’t communicate enough. Rest assured though, many conservative men do group together and raise their sons, I see it with the wealthy, they raise men still. In China they did the same to their men, watered them down to yes boys.
