With New Ad, CoverGirl Proves It's More Than Easy, Breezy and Beautiful

#GirlsCan Spot Is a Call to Female Empowerment

"Girls can't ..."
One of the most unexpected (and, from where I sit, compelling) parts of Sunday's Olympic Closing Ceremonies on NBC was a new commercial from CoverGirl.

And, that was because this #GirlsCan ad wasn't your typical, "Hey, here's DrewBarrymorePinkKatyPerryTaylorSwiftEllenDegeneres to highlight how fabulous this new [insert makeup product] is." Not in the slightest.

Instead of focusing on superficial beauty, this spot digs much deeper, aiming to rally women of all ages, creeds and colors to realize their full potential; to become assertive, confident women who will stop at nothing to be the best that they can be.* (*That tag line was already taken.)

Featuring most of CG's stable of successful talking heads, the ad has struck a chord with the viewing public and is already trending huge on Twitter.

If you were otherwise engaged rearranging your sock drawer when it debuted, take a look at this new commercial and let us know if you think it works to convey the "I am woman, hear me roar" message or if it falls flat.
