Urinary incontinence affects millions of men in the UK, but rarely do men admit to experiencing the condition. TENA‘s new advertising campaign hopes to help break this taboo by tackling the problem with comedy. Meet Stirling Gravitas, self-styled gold medalist at life and the new face of TENA Men incontinence pads.
“I’m a man of a certain age. I’m in control of all aspects of my life,” says Stirling. Through Stirling’s hyper-masculine persona, the campaign aims to challenge the view that incontinence is solely a ‘women’s issue’.
Meta Redstedt, Global Brand Director at TENA Men, explains:
“Urinary issues among men are much more common than most people know and can have a negative impact on life. With the TENA Men campaign we want to make men aware how common this is and that there are products to deal with it, so men can keep control and their quality of life can go back to normal”.
Or as Stirling might say: “Urine leakage happens. Deal with it.”
