Entry to the GLOBES is only being a major winner of a MAA Worldwide Partner Industry Association in Australia, Asia (spanning 22 Countries), Brazil, Canada, Malaysia, Japan, Russia and the United Kingdom so our Winners really do represent the Best Marketing Communications Campaigns over the last 18 months.

This year, winners from 22 countries participated in the 35th GLOBES for 56 Gold, Silver & Bronze GLOBES, across 18 entry categories, together with the Red GLOBE for the best Marketing Communications Campaign in the World, have now been awarded.

The 2021 Best Campaign in the World is ‘Second Shave’ for Gillette Skinguard, by Mediacom Thailand.

When a young man begins shaving, a key moment is when his Dad shows him how. Unique to Thailand is that this advice hinges around a second key moment in a young man’s life.

A second shave takes place when many young men make a pilgrimage to join a monastery for a short period, as a sign of respect to their parents and family, marked by a unique ordination ceremony. As the son renounces the material world, it is customary for the father to shave off his son’s hair.

Mediacom Thailand capitalised on the second shave ceremony to launch Gillette Skinguard, with a product demonstration involving a real father preparing for the ceremony before his son entered the monastery. The father shaved off his son’s scalp and eyebrows, the most sensitive areas of the skin, demonstrating the ability of Gillette Skinguard technology which minimises the pressure of the blade to protect even the most delicate areas.

The Promotion triggered a national conversation about father and son relations. Even with a small budget, the Second Shave Promotion was a huge success in terms of awareness generated and sales.

Gillette also donated 10,000 Skinguard kits to monasteries, to help monks keep their scalps and eyebrows smooth.
