All Kinds of Wrong

HA! This Schick Quattro Trim Style ad in the May issue of Elle made me snicker.


schick quattro trim style ad


Speaking of the "hair down there," I hear the full on wild and woolly look is coming back in style. Thoughts on this?

Gosh, I don't like the think about it. I did see that ad in Elle and did a double take.

Tia said...

I cannot believe you just did a sneak attack of a full on crotch! I was SO not expecting that as i giggle at the Schick ad, then casually scroll down to see the beav trying to escape!!

Way to get my day started!

nicole addison said...

gag!! well easier maintenance goes without saying but it makes me want to puke just thinking about it. hahah

Annie said...

ha! that add is great!
the second pic, not so funny! i haven't eaten breakfast yet!

bananas. said...

Oh hell no! Sorry but that 70's pornstar bush can stay in the past, at least for me.

I like mine sans afro :)

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

LOVE that ad. Marketing genius, I say.

As far as the bush coming back, well ... I prefer the trimmed look, but with three kids four and under, I barely have time to shave my legs. So at least part of my body will be in style. ;)

Iva said...

omg that ad is hilarious!!! LOL!!!! and I can't stop laughing at IT. {speaking of 'IT'...have I ever told you those were my initials before my married name?...ummm yeah it was THE funniest thing in like 2nd/3rd grade. fun times.}

and my cha-cha will not be following that 'back in' trend. no thank you.

Bathwater said...

I think body hair in general will be more commonly removed as time goes on.

Diane said...

funny ad! as for the bushy look coming back - as long as i'm not... well, let's just say, having lunch at that particular establishment, i couldn't care less lol. i like to take a shaving break myself from time to time!

Down and Out Chic said...

ewwwwwwwie on that last shot. ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Caroline said...

Yup...I heard the beard is making a come back. Well see it in playboy first...

Karisa Tells All said...

I think there was a commercial version of that ad too! And that pic reminds me of the scene in the Sex and the City movie where they show Miranda's, well, "wild and woolly look" hahaha!

Liz said...

No no no no no!

uglygirl said...

Did it come with stencils? There was a similar ad a year or two ago in magazines here and it came with a cardboard bit with all these push-out stencils, like an arrow shape...

Diana said...

no! plus i'm far too lazy :P

Andhari said...

Ugh wild and wooly look. I'm not sure I'm happy with it.

Trixie said...

It's not coming back here!

...love Maegan said...

ahahah ...I think there was a full on commercial with "bushes" for that razor too ....I did a double take as well but laughed, of course.

You had me and "wild and woolly" ahahahahhah
...but no, even though it's easier not to shave, nowayjose!

Jill said...

I am carefully manicured...like a topiary. I'll stick with that.

Mrsblogalot said...

Yay! I am finally back in style!!

Christiejolu said...

Great add but the pic! LOL!

Sam said...

Frankly, I am glad to hear it's "coming back". I am tired of the overly manicured look. I want something real, not a pretense.

josie(bean) said...

LOL GURL, you just sneak attacked the shit out of me with that last picture! best part is that im at my schools lab where everyone could see, i skimmed past the cringe-worthy image SO fast! hahah

have a wonderful mid-week, void of terrifying bush

Gabby said...

I just choked on my coffee with that last picture! Ahhhhh no. That's all. :)

Dancing Branflake said...

Haha! You always always always crack me up! I think we would have a great laugh fest if we met in person.

Shelley said...

i hate those ads... but i hate the commercials even more :( as far as hair down there trends go... is there such a thing? i vote do what make you feel best.

Pretty Little World said...

I'm not really sure I understand advertising anymore. It seems that only 1 and about a zillion ads appeals to me, and that 1 ad is probably from Apple.

Do they really think someone will say, after seeing that pic, "I think what I need is a Schick razor!"?

anotherfishinthesea said...

there was a commercial version too, even more disturbing!

you just totally got me though, i was giggling and scrolling then and then "Oh god!" ha

Char said...

those ads totally crack me up

Kitty Stampede said...

LMAO to MrsBlogalots comment!!!!!!
its so funny how people get so weird when it comes to pubes....its freaking natural shitwags.
People are so used to the airbrushed pornstar waxamaniacs that they are scared to face it that yeah flipping hair grows down there.

Alina said...

Oh to funny! Well, waxing is expensive for the unemployed and many states have out-lawed brazillan-waxes for health reasons. So I can see why hair down their is coming back. But I am a neat and tidy kinda girl.

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

you mean the spilling bush was hot (or cool) before? i've heard of bushy armpit hair but not down there. er. please. no. please.

Rhianne said...

I think I've seen similar adverts on TV - they made me snicker too.

Jessica said...

Well I love the ad but as for the bush coming back no thanks. I had the 70s fur ball on my crotch for too long glad once I got rid of it not going back. I found a place where I can get a full Brazilian for 25 so I get her all soft, smooth and pretty and love it like that.

Brooke said...

Hahahaha....No wild and woolly for me. It would drive me insane.

Cristin said...

blech! neatly trimmed is where it's at.

Claire Kiefer said...

Hahaha I don't think that second pic is gross! I don't think women's wild ass natural hair should ever be gross. I don't think I can bring myself to do it cause I just think it's so much more comfy with less hair down there, but the whole crotch grooming thing is kind of the bane of my existence . . . too much hair or shaving bumps? Not the best choices!

chaoticsense said...

The ad's hilarious! BUT the picture's so wrong! hahaha..

Asylum Dolly said...

*juvenile snicker*
That ad is great! Woah! Did totally not expect the second pic! O.o
Hmm, methinks I prefer a bit of grooming down there...not COMPLETELY all off, as that kinda seems a bit creepy and pre-pubescent...I'm a fan of the mini mohawk.
OVERSHARE! Sorry!!!!!

Asylum Dolly said...

P.s. Kitty Stampede makes a good point though. Hair GROWS there, and under our arms, and on our legs.It makes me actually a bit ashamed that i feel the need to shave it off. I've had hippy friends who don't shave ANYTHING, and people look at them like they are disgusting dirty creatures..but wtf? Who has the right to say what we can and can't do with our bodies.It's like women aren't allowed to be human..we have to strive to be these perfect fucking "godesses" or something, while men are free to just BE.Grrr. That said, I'm in the habit of grooming, and i personally feel better that way..but i have to wonder WHY.
