The Last Word on the Gillette Fiasco

Schick took advantage of Gillette’s bizarre marketing campaign to pitch its products to American men. We applauded Schick, but, to be fair, Barbasol takes the prize with this ad:

My only question about the ad is the suggestion that the guy is a “great grand-dad.” Seriously? I doubt that many great-grandchildren of WWII vets are shaving. But maybe some of them married young, I don’t know. In any event, the ad is a terrific, funny counterpoint to Gillette’s unforced error.
