I'm reminded of an old SNL fake commercial in the 70's that I never forgot. It was just after dual blade razors came out, and this SNL commercial was a slick looking commercial for a new razor, with the usual graphics of a razor commercial, a 3 bladed version:

“Triple Track,” a three-bladed razor, with “not just two blades in one system, but three stainless, platinum teflex-coated blades melded together to form on incredible shaving cartridge.”

It ended with the narrator's line: “Because you’ll believe anything.”

And of course, it wasn't long before triple blade razors came out :). (And quadruple...)
I remember that one and then saw this one on MadTV. 20 blades.

We are almost there:

EDIT: beaten to the MadTV link by ninja Blumlein!

BTW I found the original SNL 1975 commercial. Unfortunately it's on what might be the most annoying website of all time, where it is broken up in to little segments. You have to keep selecting "next clip":
