Social media seems to invite hyperbole. And thus you get tweets proclaiming things like, "@dollarshaveclub is the best thing that ever happened to me."

Poking fun at the absurdity of such online proclamations, 180LA took real Dollar Shave Club reviews and had actors recite them in extreme situations. So an actor dressed as an astronaut shaves during a mission to space, then announces that "@dollarshaveclub is the greatest thing to happen to mankind."

One buzzed-about spot shows a guy who's shaving in an airplane restroom when he's joined there by a flight attendant. Later, while they're putting their clothes back in order, he raves about the best club he ever joined, but it's not what you're thinking.
