Dove Men Care — Bobby Hurley

sjbooher: ARE. YOU. KIDDING. ME. What’s next Jeffrey Dahmer for Heinz ketchup? Osama Bin Laden for Water Babies suntan lotion? How about throwing Kim Jon-Il in the adidas “All In” campaign? Look, I am a Michigan alum and a Carolina fan since a young kid, so I know I’m biased. But the Duke basketball team is one of the most hated, if not the most hated, team in college athletics! And they are personified most by either Hurley or Christian Laettner! And THAT is whom you pick as your spokesperson? Good thinking. I’m guessing a lot of people felt the same way, because by Duke’s second tourney game this weekend they had switched this spot out for one featuring Magic Johnson. Amazing. What are you doing? F.

jtherkal: I didn’t dislike this ad when I first saw it. Probably because I didn’t remember it. And I didn’t remember it because I didn’t notice it. So that’s not a good start. However, if the tag line is “comfortable in your own skin” it makes perfect sense. Bobby doesn’t care that you don’t like him or that you hate Duke. He’s comfortable being that guy. Bobby knows, haters gonna hate. But that doesn’t mean he can’t use soap. That being said, this felt cheap. Like some college kid made it with iMovie. Maybe Bobby was the only person those college kids could get. D+.

sjbooher: I hope Dove is comfortable in it’s “selling less product” skin.
