George Perry Floyd Jr. was an African-American man murdered by a police officer during an arrest after a store clerk suspected he may have used a counterfeit $20 bill in Minneapolis. Derek Chauvin, one of four police officers who arrived on the scene, knelt on Floyd's neck and back for 9 minutes and 29 seconds.

That is very unabashed Dali...

No wonder Disney were too shy to show it for 56 years!

Gee whiz, how times change to now find it on YouTube!

(Beware the Disney 'forever-and-ever-extended-forever' 'copyrights' restrictions and DCMA!!! Beware the Jubjub!)

Harry's Razors bought by Shick, NOT Gillette.

Bought by owner of Shick in 2019.

Harry's Razors bought by Shick.

I'm in the Harry's Club since start of sales, pre-Shick.

Hey TL. New update.
In May 2019, Edgewell Personal Care, the owner of the Schick brand of shaving products, announced plans to purchase Harry's for $1.4 billion. The merger was intended to finalise by the end of the first quarter of 2020. On February 3, 2020, the Federal Trade Commission sued Edgewell to block the merger, stating that bringing Schick and Harry's together could hurt competition and Edgewell backed away from the deal.

OK, that just means that Harry's is "Harry's" NOT 'Shick - Harry's'.... AND, I can find NO info on a merger between Harry's and Gillette either.
Besides, with the logic of that argument, Gillette would also fall into the "...Too large of a monopoly"; or whatever, and would hurt
competition as well.

Ok, I did a little research. I thought the sale had gone thru. It did not. Harry's is still owned by its founders and shareholder. Want to own Harry's? It's currently selling for 5.98 cents a share. That's down 70% from this time last year. Not a good-looking investment. My humble opinion. I am not a stock expert and don't shave often.
