Watch This Commercial Totally Smack Down Gender Roles

In the past, Pantene has had some pretty fabulous commercials (did anyone else tear up at the one about the violinist?) but their latest takes the cake. 

The clip focuses on men and women who are living and working on parallel paths. While the men are praised for their dedication and ingenuity, the women are perceived negatively for the same actions. Surprise, surprise, right? While it isn't exactly news that driven women are prone to being perceived as crones by those less-evolved, it's nice to receive a reminder every now and then that you're awesome, beautiful, and can do whatever the hell you want. Then maybe go and buy some hair care products.

Preach, Pantene, preach.
