Putting “lawn care” on TV

Clever or crass? Or both clever and crass? Just one more thing taking the private out of “privates“. I’m not sure how I feel about such overt advertising. We all know what a razor is, why do we need to be told where to use it, even if it does come with a nifty trim accessory. I’m confident even the slowest of us could figure it out.

British version of Shick commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvFSgXpyhoM, which is not as subtle as the American version (which you can see bits of from Sarah Haskin link, below).

So, all the above said, Sarah Haskin’s take is really funny.

Thus, the desensitized, overly-personal world we live in.

My friend from high school, Celia, is the one who got me on this subject. See her blog post about it here: http://groundhogdaywithceliafae.blogspot.com/2009/04/not-your-mothers-gardening.html
