Editor's Pick

P&G's Pantene seems to be on something of a feminist streak. First, its Philippine arm and agency BBDO Guerrero launched a viral hit that challenged gender stereotypes -- such as a woman being called bossy while her male equivalent is simpy "a boss." Now, Grey New York has come up with a new commercial that asks why women are always apologizing. After posing the question, it shows some women in a number of different scenarios -- interjecting in a meeting, handing over a baby to a husband -- always with an apologetic "sorry". It then shows them again, without the apology.
