Up until last week, Gillette was mainly known for their overpriced hair-removal implements. You can get yourself four 37-blade cartridges that shave no better than a double-edge for the low-low price of twenty bucks.
Unsatisfied with their usual schtick, they made the move to expand their expertise into the realm of social justice. While simultaneously taking a giant dump on the very people whose greenbacks they depend on. Needless to say, their new direction is being met with a whole lot of mockery.
Even Saturday Night Live is getting in on the action with this Kool-Aid parody of the Gillette commercial:
Oh yeah! Just a moment, please.
This is one of those rare times where Saturday Night Live has it right. Sure, their show generally tows the leftist line of anti-Trumpery and elitist douchebaggery. Delivering cringeworthy leftist propaganda disguised as knee-slappers. I can’t really say they’re doing that this time.
This Kool-Aid parody perfectly illustrates the absurdity of grandstanding lectures from a company that specializes in scraping unwanted hair off of faces. SNL simply had to take it to the even more absurd extreme of sugary drink mixes for chuckles to ensue. Razor blades and gender theory have never gone together, and probably never will.
Maybe Gillette will see SNL’s parody ad and the yuge backlash and come to their senses. After all, it isn’t exactly a right-of-center program. Operating outside their wheelhouse and insulting their core demographic isn’t exactly the smartest business strategy.
Though, once that leftist bug hits someone, it’s hard to shake it off. Nevertheless, we’re rooting for Gillette to unstuff their head from their heinie-hole and get back to doing what they do best. Ripping off gullible hairy folk.
