Frank 'Furback' Sack The Genesis of Philips Bodygroom

In a new historical examination of Frank, Furback" Sack, the inventor of the TuftBeGone body hair removal device, Philips Norelco Bodygroom takes a look back at cultural influences which resulted in the the launch of its own Shaveeverywhere.com phenomenon.

Tribal DDB rep Steve Nesle tells us, "The mockumentary is based on the early history of 'manscaping,' as modeled by some furry 1950s Coney Island guys. Narrated by 'Follicle' Phil Fontana, it tells the story of a character named Sack, who invented an unfortunate device known as the Tuft B-Gone. Hairy guys sprinted through the machine, and 'after the scabs fell off,' Phil says, 'we'd grab a broad and a cold beer and call it a day.'"

We applaud Tribal DDB New York on this one. We actually watched it until the very end and even enjoyed it.
