Mach Daddy

Continuing from our last post, we're still increasingly fascinated with the McCain and Obama slanging match. In fact, it's often pretty funny to watch how adverts and brands attempt to show up their rivals, whether it's AOL v NetZero, Nokia v Apple, or Tesco v Asda....on that note, what's also interesting is the youtubes out there doing this already, you probably remember this one.

So amongst all this nonsense, I find myself watching the latest series of gillette advertisements where instead of opting for a gentleman's fisticuffs with Wilkinson Sword (who?), they go straight for the self-flagellation. Now, in my world, Gillette reached a conclusion a few years back when they invented the Mach 3. The perfect razor. What's with all the new products?! Well, it turns out a lot of people are of the same thinking. So instead of really focusing on the brilliance of the new gillette fuscia, or whatever its called, they have to literally beg you to fuggetabout the Mach 3. No, that's wrong, they want to force it from your hands. It's pretty violent...

Gillette fuscia or not, I'm sticking with my house-mate's Mach 3 for now.
