Norelco Consumer Products Co. brings the "Put it to the test" campaign to Ask Jeeves in a commercial set at the search engine's Silicon Alley office in New York.

D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles, New York, created the shaver spot for the division of Philips Electronics North America Corp. Copywriters: Mike Sullivan, Leslie Long. Art director: Yin bo Ma, Susan Lipschutz. As part of the linkup, Ask Jeeves (ask.com) will give consumers an option to be directed to Norelco's Web site (norelco.com) when they ask shaving-related questions.
