> I may be reading to deep into this but it also seems shallow

It’s advertising. It’s about eliciting emotion, often in the basest way possible. You use “shallow” like its a dirty word in the ad world, but I know a lot of ADs who would take that as a compliment. Why? Because it means the ad got to you.

>It also shames women who don’t wear hijbas.

Please, refrain from using the word “shame” or “shaming” – it triggers me. All jokes aside, that kind of verbage has absolutely no place here. Is a coke commercial shaming pepsi drinkers? Is a diet ad shaming fat people? Ads, at their best, are *persuasive* – I think this is very persuasive in getting women to wear a Hijab – therefor, it accomplished it’s goal. You don’t have to *like* its goal to understand that it *achieves* it.

Also, I will remind you that “professionally offended” is not a viable career path. Ads are sometimes here to shock. The creative mind behind this one is absolutely loving that you’re upset by it.
