In a billboard campaign by Dove called 'Girl Outdoor,' a young girl is seen peeling the billboard away to shield herself from prying eyes. Encouraging mothers to "join the conversation about the ideals of beauty," the ad features a girl worried about her image. The billboard was positioned on the corner of a building in the largest square in Tel Aviv, Israel.
This campaign has the potential to be very effective through its eye-catching use of the billboard medium. By using the physical structure of the billboard to make a point, spectators are more likely to interrupt their daily patterns and pay attention. In addition, the ad has a certain voyeuristic quality, which is sure to make the target segment of mothers internalize the message.
