Did any of you catch this article in the WSJ this week?

And if you haven't seen the Dollar Shave Club video, you should check it out. Really.

It will be interesting to see if he is still in business a year from now. I do like the homemade video. Very catchy.

Yeah, when I saw the video about a month or so ago, I thought it was a joke or spoof. I guess it's not. I did just come across an earlier post here that references the DSC:

If this option were around when I was considering jumping to DE razors to stop paying top dollar for cartridges, I might have joined up.

It's a funny ad. I'm not sure about the business model, but they had a big influx of money from investors--it will indeed be interesting to see if they can be successful.

I believe that no matter what else happens, I'm sticking with my DE razors and blades. Period. They work better and are environmentally friendly. The blades I use from Egypt, Israel, USA, and Japan work very well, thank you!Wink

Even a tiny share of a $12.8 billion market sounds like a winner to me!
