Howard Davidson Arlington MA - Gillette’s ’100 years of hair’ is sheer success

  1. 1. Gillette’s ’100 Years of Hair’ is Sheer Success by Howard Davidson, Arlington, MA Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  2. 2. Gillette’s ’100 Years of Hair’ commercial is sheer success. On YouTube alone, the clip got 8 million views to date. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  3. 3. To launch it’s new body razor, Gillette sharply looks back at the last century of grooming through a 1 minute nicely done retrospective spot. ’100 Years of Hair’ shows hairstyles, moustaches shaving techniques from the last 100 years, complete with some clothing styles that I can’t believe I endured. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  4. 4. Gillette started making men’s razors in 1901. Since then, America has passed through as many fashion trends as it has presidents. It’s pretty cool to see the company’s longevity, as well as its adaptability through the years. Not to mention a ton of really bad hairstyles. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  5. 5. The ad’s message cut to the chase: Men today require Gillette’s products more than ever. The video is clearly a smart launch effort for the new Gillette Body, the first razor “built for the male terrain.” The manscaping fad has been around for years now. A 2005 study says that nearly two-thirds of male college students trimmed or removed body hair. The Gillette Body claims to be the ultimate full-body razor in an era when young men are shaving more than ever. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  6. 6. And the video’s fun, creative vibe reinforces an important message for the company. Just because they’ve been making razors for more than a century doesn’t mean they aren’t still hip and relevant.. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  7. 7. Gillette is also running a second campaign aimed at the young male demographic. The videos tout the new Fusion ProGlide as “your first real razor.” Gillette’s focus right now is youth, and based on the buzz they’re generating, it isn’t going unnoticed. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
  8. 8. Any company that’s been in business over a century knows how to repeatedly capture youthful demographics. Gillette’s ’100 Years of Hair’ is the prime example of a company doing just that. Slide By :- Howard Davidson Arlington MA
