DollarShaveClub.com has just released a commercial that is similar to the Old Spice commercials during which random things happen, leading to a hilarious sequence of events. However, while many have tried but failed to mimic the Old Spice model, DollarShaveClub.com has created a commercial that is hilarious and perhaps even better than the original Old Spice advertisements.
The commercial begins with the company founder, named Mike, sitting at his desk introducing his company's concept: mailing razors to your door for only a dollar a month. Mike then proceeds to say, "Are the blades any good? No. Our blades are f**cking great." He then walks through a warehouse continuing to make cracks including the best polio joke ever used in a commercial.
DollarShaveClub.com has managed to grab attention for its business by creating a genuinely hilarious commercial.
