Never underestimate the value of love. Even when it involves a corporation.

Johnson & Johnson has revealed its new campaign – For All You Love. The campaign features black and white video with sweet sleeping babies and a mother kissing goodnight in an effort to humanize the corporation.

Love, “It’s the most powerful thing on the planet,” says a woman’s voice. A baby bath, grandpa playing piano – images of love created by TBWA/Chiat/Day, the first time the agency has worked with J&J, reports the New York Times.

Reportedly J&J products such as baby powder and shampoo were at the ad agency table and it evoked a very emotional response from those present. The president of the company told the Times, “This is a very emotional brand, so we’ve got to deliver a very emotional idea.”

The agency hopes love and emotion will equal trust.

Apparently the ad agency went back to the year 1943 and a company statement that reminded them of an earlier time when consumers, communities and stockholders mattered.  The head of the agency called it “one of the best corporate documents ever.”

Never mind that the company has had a few problems over the last several years – the company’s DePuy recall of 93,000 metal hips; a recent $8.3 million lawsuit filed by one man while more than 10,000 lawsuits wait to be heard; recalls of Motrin and Children’s liquid Tylenol and Benadryl; a recent $11.1 million loss to a transvaginal mesh-injured woman in New Jersey, and thousands more mesh cases yet to be heard.

Expect to see the $20 to $30 million dollar campaign appear on the major networks during shows like “Modern Family and “The Voice.”

About the Author:

I’m National News Editor, Jane Akre and I began Mesh Medical Device News Desk aka Mesh News Desk (MND) in the summer of 2011 just after the Food and Drug Administration issued an explicit warning to the public that complications associated with surgical mesh used for prolapse repair (POP) and incontinence (SUI) are NOT rare! That was the starting point for the litigation you see today and thousands of lawsuits have been filed by women whose lives have been altered, some permanently, by the use of this petroleum-based product.

    Some one needs to make a commercial,about how J&J has destroyed lives, of so many unexpecting women.Would it not have been better to use those millions to try and help all those that have been harmed by their bad products.People know what they’ve done.Sooner or later Justice will prevail. For now its all about the cover up. I can only pray to live long enough to see the giant fall. Hate is a hard word .Not one that I care to use.Greed Is what it is.What I hate,My sweet Lord will never allow them to stand,no matter how many fussy warm commercials they do.

    I wonder if it is a ‘strategy’. If you publish stories about mesh, you won’t get my adspend! If you do TV doco’s about Mesh, you wont get my ad spend. $30Mil…talks. Just saying.

    With a mother on crutches and pain in her face attempting to kiss her baby whom she cant hold because of internal pain she is having that burns her deep inside! This would be more like reality, such a farce, do the damage and forget about us like we dont even exsist!!
