My father and FIL were in WWII. None of their grandchildren are even married yet. Great grandchildren that are already shaving?
Barbasol shave cream is terrible.
This is what I was thinking. My great-grandfather died before the Korean War IIRC, and was too old for WWII.
Thank you, Denicos.
Yup. Thought the same. Someone didn't think the generation timeline all the way through.
Barbasol is the best crap in a can. Way better than the foaming jello slim garbage from Gillette and Schick. I have a can as backup when I run out of my favorite cream.
Going by the rough measure of 20 years = a generation, Great-Granddad was born in 1932. Which makes him about 12 in the commercial. And shaving, too? Huh. He was one rough MF.
Say they lied and joined up at 16 in 1942, banged some sluts at 18, and that kid waits till he is 18 to have a kid, that puts you into 1962. Another 18 years for another kid(grandchild) is 1980. Another 18 year for great grandchild is born in 1998, which means they are shaving for the commercial's sake at age 15...Even under the "best" scenario it isn't very likely. They sort of messed up.

Considering I know some broad from high school who became a grandma at 34 it is very possible.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
Was she ever tazed by a store security guard with her kids around?
Man, that's about the saddest thing I've heard all day.
This commercial is wildly offensive - I love it. Barbasol is the best OTC shaving cream. I use art of shaving cream, but when I run out I use barbasol.
Pulling, You've got one too many generations...
"Say they lied and joined up at 16 in 1942, banged some sluts at 18,"
1944... Soldier is 18. Son is newborn.
"and that kid waits till he is 18 to have a kid, that puts you into 1962."
Soldier is 36, son is 18, and grandson is newborn
"Another 18 years for another kid(grandchild) is 1980. "
This is where you messed up. this is actually the great grandchild. Soldier is 54, son is 36, grandson is 18, great grand son is newborn
"Another 18 year for great grandchild is born in 1998, which means they are shaving for the commercial's sake at age 15...Even under the "best" scenario it isn't very likely. They sort of messed up."
1998 would actually be the birth of his great great grandchild.
It lines up about perfect if you use 25 years as a generation and 16 as a shaving age as clankyironboots pointed out. Those of you using your own lineage to say it is implausible likely had at least one parent along the way who was 35 when they had their child or two generations that had a kid at age 30.
I always liked Barbasol's ads. This is not as good as the trucker with his flannel-clad wife that makes him pancakes in bed.

Do 16 year olds use shaving cream?
I was using a electric razor that my mother had
I'm 28 and my Great Grandfather came to the U.S. from Poland in 1932. My Grandfather was 4 years old. Grandfather joined the Army right after WWII and was out before the Korean War.
you do realize if it was a white trash family that a Great Grandparent could be 57 with a 18 year old great grandkid if they all had kids at age 13. They guy in the video is 69.
It is possible, not probable but possible. 18 + 18+18+15=69
Not that I know of
Not gonna lie, I love Barbasol commercials.
That's me :) I filmed that in December.
I believe him, he posted this a long time ago...Nice work. 49 seconds into this one:

It really is a good commercial.
The gold standard as far as I'm concerned.
My Dad was in WW2 and has several great-grandchildren. Nothing wrong with the timeline.
My Grandpa was on Iwo jima in WWII... he wears his Iwo hat everywhere. He is damn proud, as I am of him.
He is turning 90 this fall, and thinks that he should never have to be searched in an airport because of his service. He has said some great stuff to the TSA, last time he called their job "bullshit" to their face. Love the man.
I love that BTN plays the commercial often.
"Stop lol'ing everything!" My thoughts exactly!
