Avatar Tom & Graham


I love the Dollar Shave Club. I use them myself because they are just as good as any other razors, but the main reason I love them is their ads. The first one I saw was the best ad I had ever seen, and every time I see another one it’s just as hilarious and tasteful. I love the dry humor and how they get straight to the point. This ad successfully shows what the product is and what they have to offer. I love them, love the ads, love the humor and love the razors. Dollar Shave Club has it down on lock.


I give the “Razor Escape” ad one star because it is stupid and would not encourage any sane person to shave. This ad is really stupid! This ad missed the mark for anyone who shaves. If I wanted to buy a really good razor and saw this ad, I would run the other way. What were they thinking? It’s just my opinion, but really, why not a solid endorsement ad? Give me the old Gillette shaving ads – they were always on target and would be relevant even years later. Junk these weird shaving ads and go back to Gillette, please.

The 18 year old

A rising student of film, Graham measures all advertising against his favorite movie scenes. So a commercial with a good car chase plays well. Better with an explosion. And funny. It should be funny. So a speeding car that explodes in an amusing way will sell product.

The 80 year old

Graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Business School, Tom doesn’t let his Ivy League education interfere with an appreciation for inane advertising campaigns. He more than appreciates a poodle in a business suit selling cleaning products. He also enjoys talking babies.
