Hygiene for Mutants
The hot new movie this summer is the new Wolverine flick. The merchandising has already begun. Beside the usual Wolverine themed happy meals and toys we now have some cross-over merchandising with the Wolverine Schick Quattro Razor, Behold:
I could see a Wolverine Slap-chopper to go with my ShamWow.
But a Schick Quattro tie-in? That doesn't make a lot of sense;
First off the Quattro has four blades whereas Wolverine has 3.
Secondly,Wolverines blades are made from Adamantium not Titanium.
And Finally the Wolverine does not shave, Next to Robin Williams he is one of the hairiest mutants out there. I don't get it.
Hugh Jackman, the actor portraying the mutant super-hero, is also starring in the recently released Australia movie. I haven't seen much Australia merchandising yet.
They should market the Schick Australia Razor...You know...so you can shave "down under".
