Movember this year seems to be bigger than just about any year before it, with a whole host of neat activity going on to bring attention to the cause and further attention to men’s health.
After their – frankly awesome – Barbershop Quartet, Gilette have gone down another route with Sky Sports personality and former Bradford City manager Chris Kamara.
Best known for the levity be brings to Soccer Saturday, his inability to spot sendings off at Fratton Park and – of course – his trademark Mo’, Gilette gave the pundit a fresh-faced new look with a twist, resulting in one of the more bizarre prizes you’ll see up for grabs this Movember:
Kammy and his revered Mo underwent a careful shaving procedure to ensure that not a hair was lost.
An expert in molds and casts was on hand to capture a cast of the moustache before its departure from Kammy's face, with the hair later being reapplied to a recreation of the lower part of his face. Kammy has now been set the task of regrowing his magnificent Mo before his legion of adoring fans go spare with sorrow over the loss of his famously furry upper lip.
With the Ultimate Sporting Mo immortalised for eternity, Gillette and Kammy have yet to decide where this unique piece of art would be best kept so are calling on the public for their suggestions.
Kammy said, Ĺ›My Mo has been around for nearly as long as me – I think I began growing it when I was five,' and it means the world to me, so I was keen to team up with Gillette to lend my support to Movember this year and raise awareness for men's health issues.
Whilst it was an unbelievably heartbreaking experience to see my Mo disappear from my upper lip, I live safe in the knowledge that it has received the recognition it deserves. All I ask is that the new owner looks after my dear old Mo and keeps me up to date on how my Mo’s faring from time to time.ĹĄ
