I must be the only one who didn't think the ad was that great! I liked the message behind it, I think I was just expecting too much.
But, I thought that ad was full of cr^p. If it was by some non-profit organization designed to support all parents I may have been moved by it because I would have felt their intentions were 'good.' But a huge company trying to make a profit, their intentions are purely to get people talking about their brand and they did a great job but that's pretty much all I think of it.
I had no idea who made the ad or what the company sells. I watched and had a little giggle and then a little emotional moment at the end. And I loved the message the video was trying to convey. And that's as far as my thinking went.
I found the ad pretty boring and dull to be honest. Meh
I really liked it Thanks for sharing I got a bit upset at the end (I just can't handle kids in danger).
I rolled my eyes a bit at the bfs getting upset about it. Not about the covers, I think that was more about making them easily recognisable while keeping it on tv (there are weird rules for how much boob you can show etc.). I've heard them equate formula with Pepsi though, so it's just typical they'd be negative about this type of thing.
I don't care who made it, it's a lovely message and it's 100% right, in the end it's not the parenting politics that truly matter.
If this ad was made by Medula or a private LC company everyone would be oohing and ahhing over how wonderful it was.
Yes they are a formula company. Yes they make money. I've found this thread, and the reactions to the ad online quite interesting but totally expected. There will never be unity until we see each other as equal and that is def not the case. It's a shame a really important message that we could have decided to discuss and run with, has been ignored bc of people's personal perceptions on feeding methods.
I also find the reactions really mirror what the ad is fighting against, so it's all a bit ironic to me.
