Gillette: The Best A Razor Commercial Can Get
July 1, 2012 Leave a comment
I know I usually focus on current ads here, but this Gillette commercial from 1989 is too good to not write about. It’s an absolutely classic take on masculinity, chock full of sports, shaving, and success. Makes me wanna lift up something heavy, eat some meat, and then shave. The song is incredible…it’s very 80s, so a little bit cheesy, but totally inspiring (sorta like the Perfect Strangers theme). And let’s not forget the slogan. “Gillette: The Best a Man Can Get” is about as good as an advertising slogan can get. So yeah, great stuff. This spot came out when I was only 3, but I still remember it. That means it’s something special.
