"The Best a Super Hero Can Get"

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gillette, the world’s leading expert in men’s grooming, is taking its game to a higher level today by announcing a new partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Justice League” to embark on a mission: to evolve its technology to meet the needs of even the most powerful Super Heroes.

Having already developed a variety of products that are precision engineered to be “The Best a Man Can Get,” Gillette is especially equipped to take on the highly regarded challenge of uncovering what constitutes “The Best a Super Hero Can Get”—whether that be in Advanced Grooming Studies labs around the globe or at Gillette World Shaving Headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts.

Kicking off the partnership, Gillette has unveiled a long-form video spot giving viewers an inside look into the types of considerations its highly advanced researchers will need to bear in mind, as they face this new challenge. From Aquaman’s saltwater irritation to The Flash’s windburn, Gillette’s R&D team is on a quest to further understand the grooming needs of this next generation of humans – the Justice League.

“We know the depth of R&D that it takes when it comes to engineering razors that meet the needs of regular guys, and now, we are applying that knowledge in a way we’ve only dreamed of doing before,” said Max Menozzi, Vice President of Gillette North America. “In the process, we are also looking to ‘Justice League’ experts—the fans—to provide us with additional insights to consider for their favorite Super Heroes.”

Additionally, Gillette will release limited edition “Justice League” inspired gift packs this holiday season featuring all six Super Heroes - available nationwide starting late October:
