The scripts almost write themselves, our internal team came up with several of the ideas based on real life experiences.”

The concept for “Close Shave” was developed in-house and the spots were produced by Studio Center Total Production, Virginia Beach, VA and directed by , (The Joneses, 2010).

“Close Shave” is launching with a 15 second television spot, “Vegas,” and 30 and 15 second radio ads, “Snake”, “3-Pointer” and “Sushi.” Additional ads will be launched throughout the year, and will run for the duration of 2014 and throughout 2015.
