From Empowering Feminist Ads to LGBTQ Snack Campaigns

By: Jana Pijak - Jul 27, 2015
These memorable commercials range from empowering feminist ads to snack campaigns that encourage equality for the LGBTQ community. As major brands continue to embrace non-traditional marketing tactics, shock value and inspirational themes are not the only ways that companies are making a difference through their advertisements.

Whether addressing important social issues -- Honey Maid's latest ad encourages American media to feature more disabled cast members in their commercials -- or using suggestive imagery to sell candy, these examples change the way we experience TV advertising.

Pushing boundaries both through theme and visuals, these examples celebrate diversity, encourage viewers to live their dreams and suggest that the impossible will one day be reality with the help of modern technology -- as seen in the latest software commercial for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system.
