Gillette created a print ad using sandpaper.

A newborn baby's only communication during their first year of life is through touch. Academic research from Harvard shows that skin-to-skin communication releases "Love Hormones" right after birth and helps a baby build trust in its environment as well as built trust.with its parents. This print ad for Gillette in Israel targets milleninials who are bout to become first-time fathers. Dubbed "the dad test," this print ad doesn't demonstrate a product so much as the way your beard feels against a soft newborn's skin, with different roughness levels used. They even bought the adjacent page to make a spread so that you could see real scratch marks on it. Smart idea.
