Just for Laughs

Apparently the new in craze for kids is asking your father to dye his hair and remove his grey.
Kids up and down the country are emploring their fathers, no more "I want a bike, a Wii, a Doll!"; its all "fix yo colour paps" and "dynamic fade resistant colour y'all."

And so goes life in the abysmal world of Just For Men.

I'm so close to doing mine. I'm thinking of maybe having a poll on the blog

Do it Charles ... and following on from this theme, I've just seen an ad for Regaine [or whatever it is called] that shows a man worrying he is becoming more unattractive to women because he's losing his hair.

It's not his hair he should be worrying about, it's his face and lack of bloody confidence.

I would kill to have this sort of brand as a client ... I have no idea what I'd do with it yet, but it can't be as bad as this pile of shite. Hell, even showing a guy spilling some Regaine on his back and developing a "hairy spine" would be better than this turgid rubbish.

You've got me going now Mr M ...

Judging by the number of chaps I see sporting the "creative executive look" (shaven head, suit jacket, jeans) it seems that the only way to advertise middle-aged virility is to shave the lot off.

CF: Just ask some kids apparently...

RobC: I wrote about how angry the Regaine ads made me a year or two back. They are AWFUL. Far worse than even this one.

FnC: Good to see you back online mate. Its very much a ECD look... but I shall go the shaven head way soon enough!
