Schick Thinks Sex, Big Reptiles and White Coats Sell Razors

shick_shaveLab.JPG

Since Jurassic Park we are wary of anything involving labs, dinosaurs and the promise of sex. But for some odd reason Schick sees this as the perfect formula for their latest slew of homepage-worthy marketing schemes.

We're experiencing unpleasant early 90's nostalgia with this Dino Hunters thing they're doing. The promo page assures the uncertain that "Comedy, sex and nasty ol' lizards abound in this free game about hunting dinosaurs" - and we don't know how or why that sells razors (the thought of running one blade, much less four, over gigantor scaly skin makes our stomachs clench) but perhaps it does.

The sex component is a burden mainly carried by the token ditzy blonde Candy. In a perfect world hot cartoon characters would be smart and not vapid because the point of being able to create is to correct the shortcomings of reality, yeah? No.

If you're not sufficiently freaked out by Jurassic Park with razor blades hit the Shave Lab, where the somber Dr. Blade and Dr. Smooth will most certainly poke the remnants of your brain cells into frothy oblivion - like pretty pink bubbles.

Finally, because if you're going to suck hard you might as well do it in threes, there's Power of 4, which will guide you through gleefully into "a state in which an individual experiences increased levels of attention, believability and getting-away-with-things-ness."

Oh hell yes. We're totally getting four blades on a plastic rod now.

Here is what happened to me and I wrote this letter to Beth E. Mooney, CFO and Vice President of AmSouth:
Ms. Mooney,

I am a psychologist for 15 years now and also a coin collector. I do volunteer work with at risk kids in attempts to get them interested in coin collecting as well as other things to help keep them off the streets and out of trouble.

A few weeks ago, I went into the AmSouth Bank at 7265 Siwell Road in Byram, MS and asked for a few rolls of pennies for us to search through. I buy books for the children so they can collect pennies by date. The head teller refused to give me any pennies because I did not have an account there, although as you can see, I do have an auto loan through AmSouth. Because she did not have enough pennies to give to the public, the next month, I made my car payment in pennies [28,409 pennies] so that pennies would be available for anyone who may need them. This was very difficult because of a man named Cliff Hale. He did not want to cooperate and accept the pennies as payment. However, I had some friends from a local news crew ready to film and broadcast this story as I anticipated some difficulties with this transaction. Once Mr. Hale saw that the news crew was there, he took the payment, printed a paid receipt before the pennies were even counted.

Since all of this and being aware of the recent merger, I opened an account at Regions Bank. So, on April 4, 2007, I went back to the same AmSouth Bank to deposit $100 worth of pennies into my account that my at risk kids had rolled and meticulously written or stamped the account number on each roll. When Mr. Hale saw me come in the bank, he immediately went back to the tellers and told them to hold off for a minute. Then he proceeded to call me in his office and said that I obviously had some mental problems and offered to refer me to someone for mental help if necessary. Needless to say, I was very offended by this as it is most unprofessional, especially since I am a psychologist myself. In addition, he threatened to close my account.

I am really not one to get upset easily over small things. However, Mr. Hale's uncooperative behavior, demeanor and his audacity to hurl insults directly into my face kind of got me upset.

In summary, I do not appreciate the manner in which I have been treated by Mr. Hale. He is most unsuitable for his position and it makes me wonder how he ever got into his position. I sincerely hope that we can compromise and come to some agreement, even if they will accept a limited number of my pennies each month so that I can continue this project with the children.

Thank you very much for your time.

[Needless to say, Cliff Hale is one of those who will find himself as successful as the yardboy.]
