“It’s an exciting time to be stepping into DSC,” said Jason Goldberger, Chief Executive Officer at DSC. “The team is incredible and seeing how they’ve worked toward this brand evolution over the past decade, while always staying in tune with real men and their grooming problems, shows DSC’s perfect balance of grassroots and innovation.”

The hero brand spot uses musical inspiration and the brand’s signature wit to reveal a host of grooming issues guys have to contend with on a daily basis and how DSC can help solve them. Developed by an in-house creative team, the spot follows a range of real guys as they explore their biggest grooming problems, like having too much back hair or struggling with becoming your dad.

“DSC designs solutions for real people dealing with real problems, which is why our new campaign shows how DSC makes it easier than ever for guys to find answers to their grooming questions,” said Kristin Harrer, Chief Marketing Officer at DSC.

Additionally, a product spot for the new 6 Blade vs 4 Blade Razor Starter Set, the latest product innovation that helps guys figure out which type of blade is best for them by offering two in one pack, follows the same entertaining style with a musical theme.

Both spots will begin airing today across television, social and digital.

DSC products in a newly redesigned look are now available at drug stores, mass and grocery retailers nationwide in addition to DollarShaveClub.com.
