DDB, South Africa depicted women, who when perceived as men were likely to be given more opportunity, more pay, and more acceptance. They were shown as being given an advantage based on nothing more than the fact that they appeared to be male.

Finally, our lead comforter breaks a little and shows his own emotional self, when he hears the one man explain the very sad fact that: KFC's Double Down is coming off the market.
