Paul Mitchell has a commercial out in which he goes on and on ad nauseum about the fact that if you see any of his products anywhere other than a salon, the products are counterfeit. While I can now buy Matrix products at Target and Redken products at Kroger, anyone who wants Paul Mitchell products has to pay out the ass at a salon.
Paul could obviously make more money if he sold his products in more places than just salons so I don’t think lost revenue is his motivation here. I think his problem with the counterfeit products is that he doesn’t want some Bubba with a mullet whose granny cut his hair in her kitchen going around town being a Paul Mitchell spokesperson.
“Hey, Bubba! Nice hair.”
“Thanks, I use Paul Mitchell.”
Maybe Paul could be standing in the background giving the camera the devil horns sign and bobbing his head up and down to Sweet Home Alabama. Now that would be a good commercial.
Snobbiness is annoying and boring no matter how it’s expressed. Paul, get over yourself, and put that shit on the shelves at WalMart. Be a man for God’s sake.
