Key influencers are also featured in the nine videos, including musician Tom Odell, super heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua, rugby league player Keegan Hirst, former Celtic footballer Bobby Petta and transgender blogger Jamie Raines.
David Titman, marketing manager for Lynx, said: “‘Men In Progress’ was created to highlight what it means to be a guy living in the UK in 2016 and is designed to challenge labels that prevent men from expressing themselves."
The campaign, launches with ‘Like Father Like Son’ airing on June 17th with ‘Motivation’ and ‘Proud To Be’ set to air over the following week, the campaign will continue through to November, with six more short videos which explore what it means to be a man living in the UK in 2016.
