WATCH: A winter mural created with just an electric toothbrush


This is fun – Philips has demonstrated the power of its Sonicare electric toothbrush by using it to create art – check out the video below.


Here’s how Philips describe the project:

“To demonstrate the stain removal ability of the Philips Sonicare range of brushes, Philips has partnered with renowned street artist, and inventor of the reverse graffiti trend, Paul ‘Moose’ Curtis. Over three days Moose has transformed a dirty, moss covered stretch of wall at London’s Southbank into a magnificent Christmas mural using only the cleaning power of Philips Sonicare toothbrushes.

“Clean art is usually created using high-pressure washers, wire wool and industrial cleaning products which Paul ‘Moose’ Curtis uses against naturally occurring dirt, grime and moss to create the incredible shapes and patterns that make up his highly celebrated work. Today he has used solely the whitening power of Philips Sonicare DiamondClean and HealthyWhite brushes to create the stunningly detailed winter landscape featuring snowy trees, deer, and even a snowman to help brighten the mood of passing members of the public in the run-up to Christmas.”

Not sure we’d be too keen on using the toothbrush after it has been used to scrape moss from a wall, though.
