Movember’s Marriage Saving Shaving [Video]

Something cool happened yesterday. Philips Norelco sent me (along with everyone else on Doug French’s Movember team) a Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer and a SensoTouch 3D Shaver. But you know what was even cooler? That they kicked in $15,000 to our team’s fundraising efforts which means that this Movember, we raised over $34,000 which will go directly toward the fight against prostate and testicular cancer.

Yet, perhaps coolest thing still is that by providing me something with which to shave off my ‘stache, Philips Norelco quite possibly just saved my marriage. And I documented the momentous, marriage-saving shave via a three-minute video. And all you Caroline fans? I have a feeling you’ll be quite pleased with her performance in said video. It’s priceless.

But before you watch, I wanna say two things. First, I’m genuinely NOT an electric razor guy. But, second, I really liked both PN products. I was surprised that I got such a good, close shave from the electric razor, more surprised still that it didn’t irritate my skin (as many of them do). So, for what it’s worth, I give both of the products a thumbs up, particularly the beard trimmer. Because I’m one of those bad asses you’ve probably read about who’s always rocking the stubble and the beard trimmer will come in super-handy.

SO, fellas, if by chance you’re in the market for a good razor, check out the Philips Norelco’s Vacuum Stubble & Beard Trimmer and SensoTouch 3D Shaver combo. And, ladies, this might be a great holiday gift for your man! To make the items even more attractive, there’s a pretty sweet holiday rebate you can learn more about by going here: http://www.upgradeyourshave.com/?origin=|mckv|sIL5aiqBI&pcrid=8513465214|plid|.

OH, and a FINAL FINAL FINAL note. If this post didn’t make sense it’s probably because I got a vasectomy like two hours ago and I’m a touch loopy. Enjoy the video and thanks for your support this Movember! $34,000 for a great cause. So great, y’all!

    I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about shaving for the end of November. Then again, I cheated by having a beard in August. good work by you and the crew to raise funds for charity.

    Ha ha ha! Loved that video! Loved the moustache though! I’m with (awfully cute) boys on this one, but the (awfully cute as well) girls don’t seem like the type of ladies you want to mess around with. And funny,  before you went to the bathroom, I was thinking the same thing!
    Happy vasectomy time (???? huh, whatever).

    There are few things I love more that watching a guy shave his beard. It’s especially funny to watch the crazy faces they make. Hope you and your frozen baby lima beans have a great weekend!!

      i was totally thinking that when i edited this. you know, the whole louie armstrong cheeks that is the trumpet player, right? or, wait. is it the large comedian? either way, point probably made… the whole puffy cheeks, etc… i actually edited out the very most goofy of the looks. and LOVE the frozen baby lima beans. we will have a great weekend (and a lowkey one!) hope you have a great weekend, too.

    I LOVE CAROLINE. That’s all. I’m so glad I got to meet her last week. Wish we lived closer: she and I could cause some trouble.

    Oh, and you look great again. :)
