A new ad campaign by Y&R New Zealand for razor company Schick – the aim being to encourage the hipster about town to shave before their facial hair becomes ‘beastly’.

Fail. We want a ferret beard this minute.

According to the ‘creatives’:

…several test comps were done initially to explore the size, type, color & position of the animal. we settled on a mixture of ferrets for the limbs, face & tail & rabbits for the softer fuller fur of the body.  our menagerie consisted of 6 ferrets & 9 rabbits, all various colors….the rabbits were the best looking of the bunch although the ferrets had all the personality & a rather… unique… smell about them.’

beard

Zach Bainter’s 2012 documentary short about World Beard And Moustache champion and Facial Hair Handbook cover model Jack ‘just a normal guy with a big beard’ Passion –

…a man who has defied social convention and become an ambassador for the sport of competitive beard growing. Through good times and bad, he has pushed on to become the two time world beard champion. He shares this inspirational story with us and guides us through his world in a 7 minute narrative doc. He considers what his world has become due to his beard and contemplates the thought of a world without, much like that of the story of Samson and Delilah, he too faces the conflict of losing all he has become with just the cut of his hair.

Yes. That episode of Black Books.
