The Dress’ Powers Finally Being Used for Good in Domestic Violence Campaign

Mar 6, 2015 at 1:21 pm |

Who would’ve thought one dress could contain so much power? One dress to rule them all…

Now that the dust and lint balls are finally settling from last week’s #dressgate, people everywhere are trying to find new ways to use its powers for themselves.

For example, during last night’s episode American Idol (March 5), singer Jax hit the stage of Detroit’s Filmore Theatre not only with the dress – but wearing the dress. Admittedly, it looked good on her. But will you vote for Jax, or vote for black and blue?

Ryan Seacrest even supplied us with this hilarious joke afterwards on Twitter, “Even with @jax wearing the actual dress I still see white/gold in the pic.”

We’ve all moved past that part, Ryan, thank you very much.

However, The South African Salvation Army has started using the dress’ supernatural powers of social media magnetism for good in a campaign against domestic violence. The campaign’s image features a blonde model lounging with her legs askew, wearing a white and gold (imitation?) of the dress, covered in scrapes and bruises. The picture is captioned, “Why is it so hard to see black and blue? One in 6 women are victims of abuse.”

The advertisement, which was posted on March 6, is already being applauded by the internet.

This might just be the best thing that has come out of #dressgate. What do you think?

Finally, something worth talking about that relates to this stupid dress. Pass it on!
