As part of the brand's latest campaign, which launched on April 7, Dove set up signs above side-by-side doors in five cities around the world. In each city, one door read "Beautiful" and the other "Average." A camera crew then observed the way women reacted to the marked doors -- and which one they ultimately walked through. The results are a powerful commentary on how many women perceive their own beauty.
The video was shot in Shanghai, San Francisco, London, Sao Paulo and Delhi. Most of the women -- though definitely not all -- walked through the "Average" door. Some laughed and walked through their chosen entrance quickly, while others paused and thought about the choice they were about to make.
