Top decision maker and professional basketball coach, Frank Vogel, reveals one easy decision behind the scenes at his Dove® Men+Care® commercial shoot.

The new 'Easy Decision' campaign includes a video series featuring seasoned basketball decision makers and coaches Frank Vogel and Jay Wright. As top professional and NCAA® head coaches Vogel and Wright decide team line-ups and high-pressure plays almost daily, however there is one easy decision on which both men agree – Dove® Men+Care®.  The 'Easy Decision' campaign will highlight how Dove® Men+Care® body wash and bar offer more care for men's skin.[1] The videos will air throughout March Madness® programming as part of Unilever's multi-year NCAA® Corporate Partnership with CBS Sports and Turner Sports, and on www.youtube.com/dovemencareus

"Vogel and Wright are experienced decision makers who have to make incredibly tough choices under pressure and while on the clock," said Rob Candelino, Vice President for Unilever Skincare.  "Dove Men+Care has partnered with these top decision makers to show guys everywhere that no matter what type of tough every day choices they face, choosing products with more care for your skin is an easy decision."

#TournamentDecisions Made Easy

The 'Easy Decision' campaign kicks off in lock step with Selection Sunday™, a day synonymous with tough decision-making.  Throughout March, Dove® Men+Care® will help make decisions easier, by giving fans access to the ultimate bracketology assistance. Dove® Men+Care® is the official sponsor of Bleacher Report's 2014 NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge, available at www.bleacherreport.com.

Decision Making From At-Home Screens To The Streets

Dove® Men+Care® is taking basketball knowledge to another level when it comes to giving fans access to March Madness® digital experiences and events across the country.  The brand is collaborating with Turner Sports and CBS Sports to host National Bracket Day® events in five cities starting March 17.  National Bracket Day® pop up hubs will come to each city giving fans the chance to fill out digital Instabrackets (fueled by Bleacher Report).  National Bracket Day® destinations will be located at: CNN Center in Atlanta, Union Station in Chicago, Union Station in Washington D.C., Hollywood & Vine in Los Angeles, and Penn Plaza in New York City.

A 'Matchup Decisions' tool on www.DoveMenCare.com will give fans a glimpse into the latest and upcoming match ups at home (or on mobile devices).  The brand is asking fans to weigh in with predictions, and showing how personal selections stack up against Bleacher Report experts'.  Top trending #TournamentDecisions will be featured on the site so that fans can stay in tune with the latest basketball headlines before each game.

Playing for Prizes is Easy...with Dove® Men+Care®

March Madness® decisions can be tough, but playing for prizes is as easy as choosing Dove® Men+Care® for sports fans during 2014 March Madness®. As quickly as a Cinderella story can take place during the tournament, Dove® Men+Care® is doling out daily chances for fans to score instant prizes ranging from NCAA® gift cards to 2015 March Madness® tickets to the NCAA® Division I Men's Basketball Championship (preliminary rounds only). One lucky fan will win a grand prize valued at $50,000.00 which includes a deluxe home theater with a TV and advanced sound system to enhance any sports viewing experience.

An Easy Grooming Decision

Dove® Men+Care® bar and body and face wash is an easy decision because it offers more care for men's skin compared to regular soap and body washes. Built on the Dove® brand's heritage in skincare, Dove® Men+Care® products help men care for themselves, so they can continue to care for what matters most to them.  In 2014 Dove® Men+Care® introduced the NEW Expert Shave range in collaboration with barbers and dermatologists to create a superior shave experience for men.  NEW Aqua Impact Shampoo, formulated to make men's hair 3X stronger[2], and Fresh Awake Deodorant and Antiperspirant, designed to be tough on sweat, not on skin, also joined the existing lines of Dove® Men+Care® Personal Washes, Antiperspirants and Deodorants, Face products, and Hair care.
