The New Zealand branch of the razor company Schick commissioned these images for its “Free Your Skin” advertising campaign. They were made by the agency Sharpe + Associates, which notably credits the photography to Troy Goodall and the animal photography to Stephen Stewart. This suggests that there is some Photoshop trickery at work here.
That’s disappointing. Wouldn’t you like to be able to claim to wear a live, preferably wild ferret as a beard? Or maybe a honey badger or wolverine?
And once you had such a beard, why would you ever want to shave again? I don’t understand how these ads would sell razors.
