Question by pitosunshine: John Hughes (the filmmaker) what is this famous Edge “Credit Card Shaving Test” ad?
What is this famous Edge “Credit Card Shaving Test” ad campaign created by John Hughes. I keep reading about this ad, where can I see it?
Answer by pipi08_2000
These were commercials run in the 80’s. I don’t remember exactly when but I remember seeing them when I was very young. Supposedly they shaved one side of a man’s face with regular shaving cream and the other side with Edge Gel. They then ran a credit card up the side of his face and the side shaved with regular cream was supposed to make a louder sound indicating more stubble left behind.
I have been searching for a link for the commercial but can’t find one. You tube doesn’t even seem to have one.
