Shave like a boss with Dollar Shave Club [Video]

Men of the world unite. Forget those expensive, battery-operated, five bladed razors you’ve been assaulting your face with. All you need to get rid of that five o’clock shadow is US$1 a month.

That’s the message behind an advert for the Dollar Shave Club. The video features “Mike” taking you on a tour through the Dollar Shave Club factory, and includes a toddler shaving a man’s head, a man dressed as a bear, and a money party.

The company claims that it will send new razor blades to your door once a month. All you need to do is keep paying that dollar.

How good are the blades? According to Dollar Shave Club, they’re “F****ing Great”.

So, shave the way your grandfather did (except I’m not sure he had an aloe Vera strip on his razor blades) and stop making Roger Federer richer!

Since being uploaded to YouTube a couple of days ago the video has been viewed nearly 500 000 times.
