I’ve watched a lot of television in my life, but rarely have I seen commercials for barbershops. It’s just one sector of the free market that still relies largely on word-of-mouth recommendations as opposed to aggressive, costly media marketing campaigns. But on the rare occasion that I have seen a commercial for a barbershop, it’s been kind of amazing.
With that said, a few nights ago I was watching the Knicks/Heat game when this epic commercial came on for “The Hot Spot Barber & Beauty Salon & All Professional Tax Service” in New Orleans. I mean, why not get your taxes done while you get your fade and your brow-arching on? WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?!?!
