Almost two years ago, I commented on the new commercial that the Gillette Company produced, portraying men as neanderthal morons. I wasn’t impressed and explain why here:
The video is not in the post any longer, but here is the link to a different source: The Best Men Can Be
I switched to Schick after that commercial and have been happily using their blades since 2017.
Earlier today, I saw a new commercial for Gillette, featuring a firefighter who describes the “daunting task” of shaving.
I too, have sensitive skin and spent over 35 years in emergency services. Cutting holes in the roof of a burning building was occasionally a daunting task. Starting an IV on someone trapped in an overturned vehicle when the outside temperature was below zero was a daunting task. Maybe I’m tougher than I thought, but never did I consider shaving as daunting, with all due respect to a brother firefighter.
I guess that even though I am retired, I get to keep my man card.
The new video, is Gillette’s feeble attempt at attracting all the men that stopped using their products. In all fairness, according to this report, there was no impact. Unfortunately, they missed me.
