That shaver looks like it is the size of a portable radio. I remember finding one of these in some back drawer at my house as a kid. I had no idea how long it had been there, but I quickly plugged into the outlet. It must have been turned on when I plugged it in because it blew all the power in my house. After a slog to the basement to flip the circuit breakers, I showed it to my Mom, who got a good laugh out of the monstrosity before making me throw it in the trash. I probably should have held onto it as a prop to be used when I played with my Star Wars figures. It kind of looks like some sort of torture droid.
I wonder if my parents had bought this because they were seduced by the spinning foil background in this ad from K-Mart.
