The recent arrest of actor Jonathan Majors has disrupted the Army’s recent advertising campaign aimed at boosting its declining recruitment numbers. Majors, who narrated two ads featured in the campaign, was arrested in New York on charges of assault, harassment, and strangulation. The Army Enterprise Marketing Office has released a statement expressing their concern and indicating that they will withdraw the ads until the allegations against Majors are resolved. The two ads, titled “Overcoming Obstacles” and “Pushing Tomorrow”, were intended to relaunch the Army’s “Be All You Can Be” campaign motto. The Army was aiming to recruit 65,000 soldiers this year, which is 20,000 more than last year.
