Who is the better teacher? The internet or Dad?
The answer should come as no surprise. Directed by Untitled Films Tyler Williams and edited by Jeff Poremba, the video features sons seeking advice on traditional ‘ask Dad’ stuff like tying ties and and asking out girls … and of course … shaving is one of the topics covered by an international assortment of Dads. Editor Jeff Poremba skillfully cut the spot together in 4 different languages for Grey New York and Proctor & Gamble’s Gillette brand.
The boys first try learning things by “asking the internet,” then asking their dads, and comparing results. The Dads turn out to be the better teachers. Although we always knew it, a reminder isn’t a bad thing.
