Olay unveils Super Bowl LIV commercial with a call for people everywhere to #MakeSpaceForWomen - PRNewsFoto/Olay  

Special Events News by Olay : Olay is back at the Super Bowl with an ambitious new ad, created by Badger & Winters, that will continue the brand's commitment to inspire women to "Face Anything." Please visit Olay.com/SuperBowl to learn more!

Inspired by the first all-female space walk last year, Olay's Super Bowl ad stars Lilly Singh and Busy Philipps who take a trip into space with retired astronaut Nicole Stott. Their space mission is overseen by Mission Controller Taraji P. Henson and shared over the air waves by news anchor Katie Couric. The ad puts this crew of women on the quest to #MakeSpaceForWomen.

#MakeSpaceforWomen: Olay's Super Bowl commercial pays homage to the women of STEM who are blazing the trail for future generations.

· Quote from Eric Rose, Associate Brand Director, Olay: "We recognize that many industries have yet to reach gender parity, which is why we're using our Super Bowl ad to feature fearless women who have been trailblazers in their own industries as a way to inspire people everywhere to get involved and support Operation #MakeSpaceForWomen. Olay believes that when we make space for women, we make space for everyone."

· Quote from Madonna Badger, Chief Creative Officer, Badger & Winters: "The Super Bowl is advertising's biggest night, which is why we wanted to go big as well. With 'Make Space for Women,' we loved combining a bit of wordplay with the very serious world of science and technology — a world, by the way, that continues to exclude women in large numbers. We're very excited to partner with Olay to help change that and thrilled to be working with so many talented women behind the camera."

· Donation to Women in Science: According to the National Science Board, women make up half of the total US college-educated workforce, but only 28 percent of the science and engineering workforce. Olay thinks it's time for a change. The brand will donate one dollar (up to $500,000) to Girls Who Code every time users tag @OlaySkin and use #MakeSpaceForWomen hashtag on Twitter starting January 15 until 12:00am EST on February 3, 2020, to enable the next generation of female scientists, engineers, programmers and space explorers to Face Anything. Additionally, to celebrate the second all-women spacewalk by Christina Koch and Jessica Meir on January 15, Olay donated $25K in each of their names to support young women pursuing a career in the sciences with Girls Who Code.

· Quote from Kate DiCarlo, Senior Communications Leader, Olay: "Built on a heritage of strong science, women around the world have trusted their skin to Olay for more than 60 years. What most don't see are the researchers behind the creation of every Olay product she brings home. From the formulation, research, clinical testing, package design, production, there are countless minds at work to bring women products they can trust for skin that's ready to face anything. We are so proud to have the opportunity to support the next generation of young women to experiment, explore, compute and everything in between through our partnership with Girls Who Code. Who knows—one of those young women might make the next amazing discovery that changes the world."

· Quote from Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code Founder: "Girls Who Code is thrilled to partner with Olay for this Super Bowl commercial and to celebrate last year's historic all-woman spacewalk. This diverse, all-female cast is exactly what we want our girls to imagine when they think of careers in computer science. With the support of companies like Olay, and our millions of allies watching the Super Bowl, we'll not only make space for women and girls in tech—we'll give our girls the power and bravery they need to face anything, anywhere."

All-female cast: While nearly half (45%) of NFL fans are women, only a quarter (27%) of past Super Bowl ads have actually starred women. Last year, Olay helped narrow the gap, hero-ing a woman in its ad during the Big Game. This year, with Olay's all-female cast, the brand is continuing to help close the gender gap in Super Bowl ads.

Familiar faces starring in Olay's Super Bowl ad: Olay is coming back to the Super Bowl and we're bringing with us two of the incredible women who have been hero-ing Olay for quite some time.
· Lilly Singh was part of Olay's first #FaceAnything campaign. Lilly Singh proudly owned that she was "outspoken" in out-of-home ads in Times Square and Grand Central, a 10-page ad spread in the September issue of Vogue, and walked makeup-free down the runway of Olay's NYFW event, putting her best face forward.

· Busy Philipps was part of Olay's Sun Care is Self Care campaign (alongside Lilly Singh) with two very important messages: 1) self care is not selfish and 2) using SPF every day is a simple way to practice self-care – because when you take the time to care for yourself, you're ready to #FaceAnything.

New faces to the Olay brand:

· Journalist and news anchor Katie Couric stars as herself in a newscaster role in Olay's Super Bowl ad.

· Award-winning American actress and author, Taraji P. Henson appears as herself in Olay's Super Bowl ad as the head of the Mission Control Center.

· Nicole Stott is an American engineer and retired NASA astronaut. She, of course, appears in Olay's Super Bowl ad as an astronaut.
