In the early hours of Wednesday morning, a new video popped up on the internet. Using the hashtag #ShavedButNotForgotten, Henry Cavill posted to his social media a short clip that started off reminiscent of the Old Spice commercials, complete with Cavill in his bathrobe with a towel on his head and a drink in hand, to inform his fans that he is now clean shaven and that #KingStache (the nickname he gave the mustache in February) is gone. He pokes fun at the Superman CGI lip debacle that happened with Justice League while staring at himself in the mirror, unable to recognize himself, much like he expects his fans to react. The video then becomes a montage of snapshots from the times his face was covered in scruff, a full mustache, and even a beard. Cavill stitched together clips and snapshots from his own Instagram feed as well as his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, his upcoming Mission: Impossible – Fallout film, and the infamous CGI’d lip. The montage is set to Sarah McLachlan‘s “I Will Remember You”, a very fitting song for the Shaved But Not Forgotten facial friend.
Watch the clip below, straight from Cavill’s Instagram.
Will you miss the mustache and facial hair? Or do you prefer the clean cut Superman look?
