    Wondering how much money they wasted on painting, and then shaving, a field.

    but who can deny the ingenuity and creativity involved in creating this.

  9. It's called "marketing" therefore it's not "wasting" the money.

    I bet it makes you remember the brand more than just any other standard shaving commercial where a man looks closely in the mirror while rubbing his face.

    This is the first thing I said when the video was over. I'm a huge fan of his, and use their products, but what the hell? They wasted that much money and resources for that? I understand artwork, but that isn't exactly art.

    I am sure this cost Gillette a lot less than casting Henry, Federer, and Woods to show up in person and make a very generic and boring commerical like this :

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4ym1c4KRDc&feature=related

    btw this was voted the worst commercial of 2008 in the UK.

    I bet so. Difference here is that they didn't actually waste anything besides their money. In the new video, they're wasting money and the environment. That's pretty pathetic, and I'm not an ecomentalist by any stretch.

    Hey clueless-cup, who said the money is wasted?

    How do you know that they are not making money on it?

    In fact guess what: you yourself have helped pay for the cost of that "money waste" (unless it is your mamma & pappa who're still paying for the things in your toilet cabinet).
