Gillette has just launched this new 2021 TV advert that encourages viewers to “Put Your Best Face Forward” and promotes their range of fully recyclable packaging.
This 30-second commercial shows an actor shaving using the Gillette ProGlide with pivoting Flexball technology, before picking up his daughter as the voice-over tells us “Your face says so much without saying a word”.
A lot of people have been searching to find the name of the actor starring in this Gillette commercial but, despite his face looking familiar, we haven’t yet worked it out. If we’re able to discover the actor’s identity we’ll update this page with the details.
This 2021 Gillette advert song is a tune called ‘Human’ that was released in 2016 by the British R&B singer-songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man.
Featuring the lyrics “Take a look in the mirror, and what do you see? Do you see it clearer, or are you deceived?” and “I’m only human after all. Don’t put the blame on me”, the single reached number 2 on the UK charts.
Human has previously provided the soundtrack to BBC One’s trailer for the alternative history drama SS-GB, an ad for Project Literacy, and this trailer for ITV’s Paranoid. If my memory serves me well, the song also featured in an advert for BBC’s Poldark. Basically, it’s a very popular piece of music.
