What's In The Case? Gillette/Avengers: Age of Ultron Unveiling (Video)

Howdy folks. If you follow me on Twitter then you know that yesterday I received a briefcase with a lock on it from Gillette. When they asked to send me something I thought I would be a razor with Avengers packaging on it, but not a briefcase (made by Solo if anyone cares). One side was the usual marketing fun "Confidential" and whatnot, while the other side had the Marvel movie logos for four of the Avengers.

It also said, "you'll get the code tomorrow." Which of course was not good enough for me. I'm not going to lie I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out, but I was pressing the wrong damn way to open it. It took my wife to figure it out and she did it in half the time. Also anyone that can't figure out how to crack open locked briefcases in movies are liars. She made it look really simple and kinda of scary... but I didn't open it. I just wanted to be able to open it because don't send me something locked and give me a day to figure it out because I'll give up and ask my wife...

At any rate, here's the video. I experienced it first hand which you'll see because the contents shifted during shipping.


I also took some photos of everything so you could see it better than in the video. Since that was on my phone and phones suck at videos (even iphones).

Now that you've watched that you can check out this video from the press conference that Gillette held this morning though I would bail right when the "rep" from Stark Industries comes out since it's basically the same bit again.

To be honest... I don't really see what the point of all this was other than to tie-in to what's going to be one of the biggest movie's of the year. There's not a new razor. Hell there's not even a razor with Avengers marketing on it (yet???) and other than having Stan Lee show up and put on a show... well I guess that's marketing right? Get them talking about the product. And how is the product? Well, I really wouldn't know since I don't shave all that often...
