A local man was blushing with embarrassment as he admitted he still hasn’t seen the controversial new “Gillette” advertisement. The man claims that the reason for this lack of interest is his long beard and that he doesn’t care about watching or listening to anything referring to shaving.
“I feel a bit under pressure to form an opinion about the advertisement. I’m afraid that if I don’t, people will read my indifference as a sign of political bias or something. No one believes me when I say I just don’t care”, he said.
“From what I could hear from my friends who have seen it, the ad has gone viral and people have opposing views. It apparently challenges men to be better and do better — yet another reason not to watch it. Like it isn’t enough that my girlfriend is bitching about the same thing all day long.”
“They also mentioned something about toxic masculinity. Not sure what that means, as I am not muscular at all. To the contrary, I’m a bit chubby and my partner is all over me about it. I don’t know if this is relevant, but she is the regional MMA champion and does triathlon as well.”
“I think it would be better if you talked to someone who has a strong opinion about the whole thing. I can recommend a friend of mine. He is a hipster, has a long beard like mine, but regularly shaves chest and legs. His bathroom is full of “Gillette” products.”
