Mead.

They spent some time going directly at craft beer: I think it’s telling that they reference mead now, even if we know they might wink wink mean something else.

Oh, I love it. Excellent.

However, a lot of people are saying that this ad is the exact opposite.



I get that they are getting preachy, but I thought the ad made sense overall. Naturally, it has triggered every conservative.

They were the last razor company to do one apparently. But I liked the ad. The Mexico air thing seems suspicious a bit. I hope not.

It’s great no matter but I get cynical when those people agree and turn face.

I don’t think I’d say they turned face. I mean they agreed to the DNA test so they knew it was for an ad of something like that but no one was like “OK, I’m going to Mexico!”

I think all the angry comments I read to the effect of, "Gillette just lost all of their Conservative customers" is a really damning statement about Conservatives. Really? Treating women with respect and teaching boys to respect women is anti-Conservative? That's the stand you want to make? I didn't register this as Liberal v. Conservative in any way, just pro- not being an asshole, but I guess everything gets labeled as Liberal v. Conservative these days. Even saw some people saying Gillette is pwning the Libs, because only Libs treat women like shit (Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein).

It really is fucking ridiculous.

Conservatism as it is being presented really is a realm for jack-booted fascists.

I gotta say, he makes me want to give Arby's a try. (Not enough to actually do it, mind you, but he makes me consider it at least.)

Again it was selling the Elton John movie coming out next year right?

Is there something in the U.S. Constitution that every insurance company commercial has to be the drizzling shits?

Most Progressive and Geico commericals are horrible, but the Liberty Mutual ones somehow manage to be worse.
