In a partnership with Cartoon Network, Dove is pointing out that kids, even ones who act nonchalant, face tectonic tensions in their everyday life.
The Unilever brand is working with the creators of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe series, creating shorts using the show's characters to help educate kids and build body confidence.
The above film, ‘I’m fine’, is meant to draw attention to the project. It shows girls from the USA, Brazil, Mexico and France. The work is through Ogilvy London. Hong Kong-born Andrew Lang of The Sweet Shop directed.
Although the point is a somewhat obvious one, the awesome animation and the girls' own words bring their stresses to life. Ad Nut just hopes the overall project will help parents and kids connect with resources to help, because just pointing out the issue only goes so far. It is a struggle to get offspring to open up sometimes, but a necessary and potentially critical one.
