America's Finest News Source and a brief history of men's razors

Tuesday, February 07, 2006
I love The Onion. Good stuff. Funny, biting, relevant... and completely fabricated.

Did you watch the Superbowl? Did you watch the Superbowl ads? If you did, you may remember Gillette's rather crappy ad for the Gillette Fusion "with the power of five blades". Trust me, the ad was just stupid and I would have completely ignored it if not for an article on the Onion exactly two years ago.

Two years ago during the Superbowl Schick unveiled the Schick Quattro that, with four blades, out-bladed Gillette's reigning Mach 3 razor. Immediately afterwards, the Onion published a (competely fake) editorial from the Gillette CEO entitled Fuck Everything, We're Doing Five Blades. (Warning: This article is, at times (like much of the Onion's content) quite vulgar.) I remember the article being quite funny when I read it... and now it's prophetic, too. Gotta love it!
