Philips Shavers has recently received some congratulations for its thoughtful ad for women’s shavers that stars a Los Angeles male dancer named Karis. The short advertisement was a break from the ad world’s normal “girlie-men are funny ha, ha, ha” slant. In a recent interview, Karis was asked about how she identified herself. Kari replied that, “I’m so comfortable being myself, I’ve just never questioned. I love the whole androgyny thing, though, if that’s even a category.” Asked about the ad, Karis said that, “It’s a shame it’ll never air in the States, but thank god for the internet.” Among other performances, Karis previously appeared as the frisky on-stage “hula-hoop dancer” in the Scissor Sisters’ raucus Filthy Gorgeous music video.
