The mismatch is designed to steer users to engage in debate and discussion. The intention is to have people listen and understand first rather than listen and respond.

This is a unique way of a brand adding value to an ongoing conversation rather than trying to insert itself in the actual conversation. This is authentic to the KIND brand which has a heritage in building bridges between people. As more brands try to get involved in political and culture conversations, KIND is a best in class example of a brand that’s doing it right.
