Dollar Shave Club first grabbed attention with its funny videos starring founder Michael Dubin, but its simpler ideas also pack a powerful punch. In fact, these new out-of-home ads about shaving "down there" will likely make you cringe.
Three posters use fruit and vegetables to suggest the male member -- a banana flanked by kiwis, an eggplant standing between a pair of potatoes, a carrot rising from behind two beets. In each, one of the orb-shaped figures has a ghastly slash, as if a peeler dug a little too deeply into the flesh.
The point? To promote Dollar Shave Club's Shave Butter. Tagline reads: "Butter safe than sorry."
