The Gentleman Shaver? (Videos) + Surprise Giveaway!

For some reason a few different shaving forums and blogs have recently picked up again on this video made for Art of Shaving:

Yes, it’s a humorous, professionally-done video (by BBDO no less, one of the premier advertising agencies out there.  Never mind it was produced six months ago) and there’s the obvious cleavage to maintain interest.  But I just couldn’t help but think “this concept is just a copy of Cary Grant’s shaving scene in “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House from 1948!”

(Please note that some web browsers have difficulty displaying the Mr. Blandings scene above.  Sorry.  Please use the link above to view directly if necessary.)

I guess what is old is new again….
