“This product is 400% more likely to slice your face open than a regular razor, but you can take it because you’re not a pussy,” explained the three minute Schick Alpha Male Razor commercial. “It’s a razor for a man who refuses to be told what to do by a woman, whether she’s running for president or a doctor trying to stitch up his bleeding face.”
Systemic change is pretty much never the result of one single act; rather it's the result of hundreds, thousands, or even millions of tiny events, all piling on top of one another, in very much in the same way that time and wind can eventually tear down a mountain.But aside from that will the ad help anything?
I agree. I think the majority of adults want to behave in a way that they think their culture accepts. It's good to spread the impression that this is "just what you do" to the masses of people who want to fit in, but maybe wouldn't think deeply on why other people feel that way.So yes, it is unlikely that this single ad campaign will have a noticeable individual impact. That, however, is unimportant because as a part of a steady cultural shift, it will change everything eventually.
