Smooth, Dude, Real Smooth
Gillette has released a new set of instructional videos. They cover not only how to shave your face and neck, but other areas, including... you guessed it.
Yes they did.
They've found an animation style that keeps it light, so that viewers like me don't pass out when the danger of nicking my equipment is addressed. "Let the razor do all the work." Um, no, I think I'd like to stay at the controls on this one.
Technically these animations are SFW, but really, why give your coworkers this kind of ammunition?
There are other segments on shaving your head, armpits, etc. Maybe TMI, but I was hoping for some insight from the back-shaving clip. (Minor aesthetic adjustments, nothing major, I swear.) Simple geometry makes this operation very difficult, so I was hoping for a new angle, as it were.
But their advice was useless: have someone else do it.
Really, Gillette? You've engineered a five-blade razor, but can't recommend anything better than monkey-style social grooming? No thanks. I guess I'll have to invent something. (Brainstorm: electric trimmer attached to a vacuum cleaner... it just might work!)
Are there no secrets anymore? Manscaping must be getting more popular than I thought. Readers?
Here's a Funny or Die clip on man waxing. I'd vote it NSFW.
