Only in Japan

30 04 2012

I’m still pretty busy; but I wanted to share this with you all: where else in the world would a company think of using an toy to sell a razor?  If the toy is an anime figure, the answer must be Japan.



It seems Schick is cross promoting with Evangelion because by this time I’m sure the list is running thin on things that haven’t been cross promoted with Eva.  Schick Hydro 5 razors come with exclusive figures, and blade refills come with superdeformed Evangelion toys.  And before you ask, no I didn’t get one.  I’m a Gillette man, myself; and they’ve started putting One Piece characters on their packages.  Seems there might be a Evangelion/ One Piece shaving war a-brewin’.

Or maybe the Japanese have decided that otaku need to shave more.  Who knows.
