Activia Campaign by Young & Rubicam

Okay, so Activia has a new campaign that just launched, developed by Young & Rubicam. They are an agency based out of Prague, Czech Republic.

I’m sure that they were going for a concept that they wanted to really spark an interest among society towards this apparent problem, I think they just pissed a few people off though.

I like this style of in your face advertising to get a message across and to try and really push call to action.

This one just doesn’t do it for me, any thoughts on it? Let’s start a discussion!

"Men earn 30% more than women who do the same job". Some things are hard to digest. That's why we recommend Activia every day.
"Women do the cooking in 80% of households. But 90% of the tv chefs are men." Some things are hard to digest. That's why we recommend Activia every day.
"Women lead 65% of all families, but only 3% of companies." Some things are hard to digest. That's why we recommend Activia every day.

  1. It doesn’t do it for me as well.

    It does raise the question: Where are these statistics coming from?

    While these numbers may be accurate, It’s hard to deny that we live in an innumerate society that willingly accepts statistics without question. Advertisers take advantage of this, news agencies take advantage of this, and social advocacy groups take advantage of this. Statistics can be powerful and manipulative. Damned Lies and Statistics by Joel Best is a great read. I recommend it to anyone interested in ad research and sociology.
