Football removed from Thierry Henrys hand on French version of Gillette website
Gillette, the shaving company, who’s stars, Thierry Henry, Tiger Woods and Roger Federer star in the campaign have updated their website. If you log onto http://www.gillettechampions.com and visit the Irish site you will see one image with a football in Thierry Henrys left hand – if you visit the French version the foodball is not in Henrys hand.

See the Gillette screenshots for the Gillette Champions website below.

French Disgust at Henrys HandBall
This may have been as a result of the French disgust at the way Thierry Henry cheated during the France v Ireland game. 88% of French people voted on a Le Monde poll that Ireland did not deserve to lose that way and that a replay was fair. Perhaps Gillette thought that the recent backlash against Thierry Henry was going to damage their brand.

The recent “Gillette – The Cheaters Choice” Email Funny Attachment (I have a copy of it but I’m not going to put it on-line for legal reasons) which has being doing the rounds on email system around Europe is all the more interesting now that Tiger Woods has had his cheating made public. I’m sure Roger Federer is shaking in his boots – or maybe he’s the good guy in all this, after all he is the one looking at the 2 guys in the shots above.

Close Shaves all round!
