Barbers practice shaving a balloon in 1950

Here's a video from 1950 that shows barbers practicing their shaving skills on an inflated balloon. I love how there is a face drawn on the balloon (just in case the barber needed a reminder that this was practice for a real person). 

Unfortunately, the balloon man did not survive the procedure. RIP, balloon man!

Hopefully, this barber didn't pop too many human heads once they began shaving real customers.
