The message of the Axe Super Bowl 2014 ad is “make love not war”. Matthew McCarthy, Senior Director, AXE & Men's Grooming for Unilever was really excited about this and he had the following to say that “Young people care deeply about the future. This generation is socially conscious and more digitally connected than ever. AXE is tapping into this to start a conversation, inspire people to unite globally, and raise awareness about the power of peace in a way only AXE can do. In a world filled with conflict, we know sometimes the most powerful weapon is love. And as the film dramatizes, for one sublime moment a kiss has the power to make the world a more united and peaceful place.” This is why; you will see lots of politicians, war lords, fighters who seem to go for a war but instead of that they express their love for their loved ones.
