|Year / Decade Made
In 1970, Norelco, a manufacturer of electric razors and hair supply electronics, had an advertising campaign for its Tripleheader 35T electric shaver where they posed a contest between regular blades and their electric shaver. The ads said that if men shave one half of their face with blades and the other with the electric shave, these men would conclude that the Tripleheader gave them a better shave.
