A bunch of Shaker Ladies have sent me this advert for the Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle with "bikini trimmer," the in-house working title for which I can only imagine was "Trim Your Bush, Bitchez."

If you can't view the video, there's no real transcript, aside from a description of the product, which is a safety razor with a trimmer at the end of the handle. As various thin white women and one thin black woman pass by unruly bushes (of the plant sort) during their daily activities, and some ethereal music plays in the background, the bushes magically get trimmed into, well, familiar bush (of the non-plant sort) shapes, in possibly the clunkiest, sledgehammery metaphor of all time.
