SHELTON, Conn., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What do you get when you collide a donkey and a dragonfly? Or your ex-girlfriend and a grizzly bear? Enter these words or your own combinations and BIC will show you what happens in its new Hybrid Collider interactive video on YouTube. This humorous campaign supports BIC's newest men's razor, the Hybrid Advance® 4, which features a "collision" of a system shave experience with the convenience and value of a disposable razor.
This interactive video introduces viewers to the main character, Danbob Smith-Jones, who brings viewers into his garage to see his newly created machine, the Hybrid Collider. Danbob urges viewers to type in two words to form a "hybrid." Viewers will experience the collision of the two words, which results in a variety of funny video outcomes from outside Danbob's garage.
"YouTube users will have fun entering two different words that form a 'hybrid' and then watching the many different hilarious videos," said Mary-Ellen Lacasse, director of Shaver Marketing, BIC Consumer Products USA. "With many different possible outcomes, viewers can enter thousands of different word combinations and have a new interactive experience each time."
