Super Shaver

Bill Nye the Science Guy wore Superman’s colors and styled his hair with a curl on his forehead for a promotional video for Gillette. His video is one of four that offer theories on how Superman shaves off his beard.

Although Nye’s video is the best of the four, I think that filmmaker Kevin Smith has a better theory about Clark Kent’s hair removal. Nye suggests that Superman could grind away his beard using earthly materials. Smith says that Superman could shave with a piece of the spaceship that carried him to earth. ¬†What about the possibility that Jor-El¬†packed a toiletries kit for his son to take on the trip?

    I agree that Bill Nye’s is the best. It would make the most sense to go out to the barn as a teenager, and grab your dad’s grinder before he has to leave for school. He’s out there doing chores anyway.

    I gotta say, I do like the Materials Science theory. I might be a bit biased though, since I took classes on Materials Science but never took a class on Krytonian space ships.
