[Ladies' Week] Inspirational Ads
Ok. I usually don't like ads. But when it comes to sports ads, especially inspirational sports ads, I love watching them. I would sometimes go on YouTube just to watch motivational sports commercials over and over again. Well, once again, in celebration of Ladies' Week, I want to share some of my favorite sports commercials with y'all. Sit back and let's get pumped! 1. Nike - Better For It This ad's main message is to support women on their athletic journeys. We all have our own insecurities when it comes to working out. However, this particular campaign empowers women to be better through inspiration and motivation to push to the next level. It's so motivating and it also sends message to the rest of the world that there is no such thing as masculine or feminine when it comes to exercising. Everyone is equal and everyone has the power to turn "can't" into "can". 2. Always - Like A Girl This ad is definitely one of the most powerful ads I've ever seen in my life. Due to the stereotypes that exist in society, girls may lose confidence as they grow older. The rest of society could also be bound by these types of stereotypes. But this commercial can change the perceptions that people have of the phrase, "like a girl". It also has inspired me to take part in this campaign and change the phrase "like a girl" from an insult to something positive. 3. P&G - Thank You Mom Moms are the best. Even though I have not yet been a parent, I always get a bit misty when I watch this ad. A powerful element in this commercial is that athletes are not the focus here. Instead, the focus is on the dedicated moms that pick them back up when they fall. Of course, we cannot forget about all the dads around the world, but let me say this one more time: moms are the best! Well, another shoutout to @shannonl5 for planning this awesome event and you guys should all join if you still haven't heard about it yet! Also, what are your favorite women's sports commercials?

Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?
