In response to Laura Perrins: Why this razor ad doesn’t have me in a lather,
Sorry I can’t agree with you Laura on this one.
Firstly I have no skin in this game, as I hate shaving (no pun intended) as it is so utterly boring, so I always use an electric shaver which is quicker and usable anywhere.
However I strongly dislike a commercial firm, whose only responsibility is to its bottom line and shareholders (not good, but how it is), preaching to possibly malleable young men, or males generally, as to how they should live and what values to have. My values towards women, and everything else, are based on my lower middle class upbringing and traditional Christianity. For a commercial organisation to presume to tell me or any other man what to think is condescending, presumptive arrogance. It is also more than a touch pathetic and downright laughable.
