Pantene’s commercial, which takes on hypocrisy in the workplace, has more than 3 million views on YouTube and has gained some influential fans.

 

A Pantene commercial from the Philippines that takes on gender stereotypes in the workplace has caught the attention of a woman who knows a thing or two about the subject.
