MMA is all about smooth skin

In giddy fanboy honor of the PRIDE-like bounty coming this New Years Eve, I thought I’d dig into the vaults and bring back the classic Schick commercials with Mirko, wand, and Mark. Can Japanese people even grow beards??? Selling razors in Asia must be like selling ice makers in Antarctica.

    Heh since when did you love Pride, linker?
    Thought you were UFC nuthuggers till death?
    Its that screaming announcer isn’t it…..she sucks us all in eventually….that an the soccer kicks….always the soccer kicks

  • Swedish guy

    Haven’t seen them before, awesome!
    On a side note, I don’t care to much for the soccer kicks, but knees to the head of a grounded opponent could make the ground game a lot more interesting and keep fuckers from just turtling up. If they were cautious not to get kneed in the skull, they’d probably do something to get back up.

    I love Wandy’s enthusiasm. He made me believe he really meant it.

  • dulljake

    how can anyone call our site gay when the Japanese have Mark and Silva rubbing each other’s faces, and getting sprayed on?

  • Mr. Theplague

    I guess Mirko didn’t shave before his first Randleman fight.

    These commercials (or CMs) are quite well known in Japan. When I first lived there (’97) they didn’t have MMA fighters pitching obviously, but they had K1 fighters. I still remember: kiretenai! There was a great one for instant ramen recently with Don Frye.
    BTW, I couldn’t live without my non-foaming, clear Japanese shave gel. It’s by far the best…for all your shaving needs ;-)

    anyone seen Babel? well, now you know where the razors are needed.

  • Thomas

    Mirko left that gel in Japan I guess. When will we see MMA fighters in commercials in North America? I saw Arloski in a headblade commercial.

  • Mr. Theplague

    They play that Alovski one all the time on certain channels. It’s weird how they flash by him so quickly though. At least he was wearing his pitbull mouth guard.

    The Wand and Coleman video is so homo erotic, I am surprised they did not kiss at the end.

  • Big D D

    ROFL That is what I am thankful for…and the low blow.

    Maybe Mirkos been having trouble finding good razors in the US. All this time I thought he was just getting old.
