My guess is the clippers being used to trim (not actually shave) the bear. So durable that they can give a bear a neat haircut, so they`ll last for ages if you`re just using them on people.

But...mushrooms?

Apparently this Nisshinbo stuff not only can shave a bear, but instantaneously grow mushrooms. If they`re magic mushrooms, I`m sold on this stuff. :)

Well just a little heads-up, I play Devils Advocate a lot on IAB, often argue the complete opposite of what I believe for the sake of a debate, and I`m joking/deliberately playing ignorant about 99% of the time. Just because I get a reference, doesn`t mean everyone does, so sometimes its a good idea to get a further explanation for everyone`s benefit.

Yeah, the thing I like best about the bear suites is the complimentary sockeye salmon in every room, the luxurious bed size, and all the free lint rollers.

And yes I know this is a "well duh" comment. I am purposely pointing out the obvious.

Thanks for using that analogy that we can all instantly relate to. I mean, who HASN`T shaved a man`s back and said "Gosh, that sounds EXACTLY like a purring walrus!"?

The commercial is about the shaving razor, it doesn`t use as much electricity and it is so tough it can cut a bear`s hair

"So... what is this advertising?"
The company is a holding corp that deals in everything from paper products to clothes to heavy machinery (that happens to be for making solar cells.)
It looks like the things they sell mostly have to do with going green.

My guess is the two parts combined are a joke about shaving body hair to help with hygiene and advertises a line of low carbon footprint goods.

Say, Kitteh, does calling it a bear have something to do with the popularity of bear-print pantsu?

When the bear made mushrooms appear, I immediately thought of Katamari Damacy.

Anyone else have the same?

Shave a man`s back and he`ll purr like a walrus. I assume the same goes with bears.

Reminds me of the song, Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow. I always liked that song as a kid.
