Gillette® (NYSE: PG) recognizes that the best shave, Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide®, cannot be debated * but the question of who is the best in the NFL is always a hotbed of debate for the most passionate football fans. With the NFL playoffs just around the corner when debates will undoubtedly spike, the world’s leading male grooming brand and Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews today kicked-off “Gillette No Debate”, an online debate forum on Gillette’s Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/gillette). Here, NFL fans are invited to show their passion – and knowledge – of the game, for a chance to win weekly prizes and a grand prize trip to Super Bowl XLVII.
Through a series of various online videos, brand ambassador and Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews invites fans to present their best case on some of the NFL’s most debated topics. In addition to having a weekly popular winner which will be determined by number of fan votes, Matthews will ultimately have the final say on whose answer is his choice. One of these lucky weekly winners will win a trip to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, LA.
“Because you don’t have to be a professional commentator to debate your favorite NFL topics, we’re inviting fans to go head-to-head and prove to us who really knows their stuff,” said Matthews.
Starting today through January 13, 2013, NFL fans can join the debate and track their progress up the leaderboard on Gillette’s Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/gillette) as they voice their opinions on topics that cover everything from teams, players, plays and coaches. Weekly prizes will be given away, ranging from Gillette’s best shave, Fusion ProGlide razors **, to signed Clay Matthews memorabilia, to NFL merchandise, with one grand prize of a five day/four night trip for two to Super Bowl XLVII. ***“As the Official Shave of the NFL, Gillette is very excited to open up a forum for fans across the country to engage with one another and discuss the sport they love,” said Elliott Wilke, Brand Manager Gillette. “With Super Bowl XLVII tickets on the line plus a host of other great prizes, the game is on the line for fans as they debate what they think is the best in the NFL.”
