Just saw this commercial and threw up a little in my mouth.

He's the logical choice to market that item - that commercial is the first time I've ever seen Favre clean shaven. He usually has a couple of days of pretty coarse looking stubble on his mug. I don't think I'm going back to cartridges no matter who is flogging them.Smile

I agree. He is one of the current day celebrities that thinks the Die Hard shadow is cool. My opinion is I attribute this look to someone who is too lazy to maintain good personal hygiene and present a professional appearance. As for the mail order thing, I give them props for finding a dirty faced celeb to market their wares, different than the Dollar Shave club that uses quirky sarcasm and tongue in cheek humor to sell their blades. And, too, I must concede that any attempt to tear down the P&G empire of outrageously priced blades has my support, even if I will never use a cartridge again for the rest of my life.

Also, a side point, every time a razor marketer uses a celeb to sell their wares, if you see them in their public appearance, they all have dirt on their face. I noticed this back in the "Young Guns" days of NASCAR under the Gillette program, the Pawn Stars guy, Favre and any others I may have forgotten. If I were paying a celeb millions under contract to pitch my wares, you damn well better believe I would expect him to be well shaved every time they enter public view. If not, breach of contract, goodbye pitchman. JMSNHO

I couldn't agree more. A few weeks back Leisure Guy provided a link to an article that claimed that the carefully maintained stubble is a sign of low moral character. Its fraud when men go to great lengths to achieve the appearance that they are either too cool or too busy to go to great lengths to appear well shaved. I'll paste the link if I can find it.
