If you haven’t seen the Dove “Real Women” ad, you’ve been living under a rock. The powerful campaign has made its viral way around Facebook, Twitter, Mashable and Buzzfeed, among other sites. In a social experiment that feels part therapy session, part wake-up call, Dove explored how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see. A forensic artist, who never sees his subjects, first sketches women as they describe themselves to him. These women are then described by strangers they only met a few minutes beforehand. The sketch artist then hangs the two portraits side by side – and the differences between the two are astounding.

Why break it if it’s not broken? That’s exactly what JC Penney’s has done. In an attempt to reinvent (re-brand) itself in the last year, Chief Executive Officer Ron Johnson did away with the use of coupons in exchange for “everyday” low prices.

Now, Penney’s has launched a social media and television campaign to ask the shoppers who left in droves to come back.
