You can seemingly buy anything in the USA
Today, I got a shock and a laugh
Today, I was watching a video on YouTube. As is normal, about halfway through the video and advertisement started playing. Normally, I click on the “skip ad” so I can continue watching the video. But, this morning, something caught my attention. I actually went back to the beginning of the ad to make sure that I understood what they were talking about.
The product that was being advertised was something I had never thought of before. It had never entered my mind.
What was the mystery product?
Deodorant for your balls! Yes, deodorant for the male testicles.
The name of the company that makes this deodorant is Manscaped. I went and checked them out, and they make lots of high-end mail hygiene and grooming products! I could not believe it.
Their products are not cheap either! In fact, they are very expensive.
What was my reaction?
When I first saw this, I was amazed, shocked.
However, as I thought about it, I thought that maybe us men need this kind of stuff. Women have all kinds of Feminine hygiene products, so why not men?
In fact, later in the day, I was talking to my son, Jared, on the phone. He lives in Atlanta. I was telling him about this deodorant, and his first reaction was “hey, that sounds pretty good, I might order some.” After my initial shock, that is much how I felt too!
For Farmers and Landscapers?
The names of the products from Manscaped are all named after farm and landscaping type things.
- Lawnmower: this is an electric hair trimmer for “under the waistline” and it is designed to not cut your skin, for safety and comfort.
- The Shed: A nice bag for carrying all of your Manscaped grooming tools and hygienic products.
- The Crop Preserver: “Below-deck” protection. Prevents sweating, keeps you dry, etc.
All of their products have these kinds of names. I guess those are manly things, aren’t they?
Do you watch the TV show Shark Tank? On this show, entrepreneurs with new businesses or ideas for new products come on the show and a group of investors compete to partner with the entrepreneurs. Sometimes none of the “sharks” want to invest, sometimes all of them compete with better offers than the others.
Anyway, Manscaped was on Shark Tank at some point. I watch Shark Tank, but am way behind this season, and have not seen the episode.
Apparently, Shark Mark Cuban invested in Manscaped.
A funny coincidence
About a week ago, Feyma told me that she was going to walk over to Walgreens, not far from our house. She said she needed to buy some panty liners. I was in a mood to joke with her, and I said:
I am tired of the sexism in this country! You have been buying panty-liners for years. I have yet to find any brief-liners or boxer-liners! I might need some!
Now that I have seen these Manscaped products, I have no doubt that brief (or boxer) liners are going to hit the market soon! why not?
Deodorant for your balls? What will they think of next?
