Gillette has partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures new film Justice League to develop its grooming technology to meet the needs of powerful super heroes. Having already developed a variety of products that are engineered to be “The Best a Man Can Get”, Gillette is raising the bar to meet the challenge of uncovering technology that lets super heroes be “The Best a Super Hero Can Get.”
As reported in the Cincinnati Business Courier……“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, P&G’s 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 superheroes.”
Procter & Gamble Co. and Warner Bros. Pictures collaborated with in-store promotions, one of which included this feature end cap at Walmart. The multi-sided ‘Epic Save On An Epic Shave’ display featured several skin care products on all three sides. The massive ‘header area’ has several layered elements that provide a great backdrop for the two oversized, dimensional razors.
In addition to the offerings shown on the end cap display, Gillette will release six limited edition gift packs, one for each Justice League character – Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg. Other promotional activities include commercials and virtual reality content that lets players step into the shoes and feel the powers of the iconic DC Super Heroes.
The Warner Bros. film is set for release Nov. 17 in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX.
