Credits & Description

Über Content’s Lucia Aniello reunites with Dollar Shave Club’s funny-man CEO Michael Dubin to direct the video announcing the mail-order subscription services’ newest and first non-shave product: flushable toilet wipes for men.
For the DSC’s unlikely product launch, Aniello and Dubin stuck with the deadpan humor from the start-up’s original 90-second pitch that had media outlets like Time, Fast Company and AdWeek praising the viral ad for its razor-sharp wit.
After uncovering research that revealed 51% of men use flushable wipes, Dubin saw an opportunity to expand the scope of his bathroom service offerings, launching a product that isn’t generally marketed to men (conversely, for babies), and is usually hidden from display in the bathroom. The Dollar Shave Club solution: a package of 40 wipes that costs $4 for a monthly delivery.
In the promotional video released this morning, Über Content director Lucia Aniello introduces One Wipe Charlies by boldly adapting the irreverent style that worked so well in the original promo to a much more sensitive arena. Both Upright Citizens Brigade alumni, Aniello and Dubin referred back to their improv days to create another witty video explaining “all this fancy butt stuff,” with just the right amount of nonsense.
The viewer follows Dubin as he walks through a series of nonsensical scenes, starting with the CEO on the toilet. We join Dubin as he berates a neighbor kid, chats with a bear, and drops in on warehouse employee Alejandra, whose cameo appearance finds her in the desert uncovering golden nuggets – all the while waxing eloquently about the wiping experience. The video culminates with Dubin amongst a special forces unit, delivering a less-than-coy sales pitch for the new toilet paper product: "the softest, fastest, manliest way to wipe your ass.”
