QB Ryan will get more close shaves from Gillette
Former Boston College football star Matt Ryan can take heart in a consolation prize of sorts. A day after his Atlanta Falcons were beaten by the New England Patriots, Gillette announced that Ryan, now the Falcons quarterback, will be part of new ads for Gillette's Fusion razor.
No doubt the ads will suggest that the Fusion razor will provide more of comfort zone for young Ryan than Gillette Stadium proved to be for him yesterday.
A Gillette press release said the ads will note that a sleek new look Fusion boasts of a five-blade shaving surface that provides for "unsurpassed comfort and proven performance even on sensitive skin."
More than 40 percent of men claim to have sensitive skin, and Ryan is among them. As a result, he is an ideal spokesman for ads that suggest that the Fusion is the ideal razor for men with sensitive skin, the release said. (Globe Staff)
