Dollar Shave Club's Holiday Ads Show the Few People Who Wouldn't Want a Subscription 'The perfect gift for almost everyone'

For its holiday campaign this year, Dollar Shave Club takes an approach that recalls adam&eveDDB's Harvey Nichols work, rolling out amusing portraits of people who actually wouldn't be too happy to get a gift subscription to the mail-order shaving-products service.

These include: Grandma, various kids, a biker who probably hasn't shaved in decades, a robot, and perhaps most amusingly, a hairless cat. 

Dollar Shave Club creative director Alec Brownstein tells us that the ads are running across all social media platforms—but you're likeliest to see them on Facebook.

Check out the photos, and GIFs, below.
