MEDIA

Unilever faces social media protest 

 Unilever is facing issues on all fronts now. Earlier the battlegrounds were bottom lines and shelf spaces but now they have a new threat, which might pose to be a bigger problem to them than the rest. Unilever was recently a target of social media ambush. The producer of Dove soaps and Surf washing powder – Unilver has been ambushed by a 28-year-old Indian rapper, Sofia Ashraf. She has released a video against Unilever which has gone viral on web. The video “Kodaikanal Won’t” raised the issue of the environment damage done by Unilver in Kodiakanal and calls on Unilever to “clean up your mess”. It has managed to get 2.7 million views online and a response from Paul Polman, Unilever’s chief executive. 


AD WATCH

Not everything needs to be stored digitally- Canon Printers 

Not all moments should be stored digitally, some of them are private and just for you. The
ad emphasizes on maintaining privacy by preferring print-outs over digital storage. It is short, funny and creates an impact which lasts. Canon, with this strategy, is not just promoting its product but the printing industry as a whole.
