A video that struck just the right balance of entertainment and information also struck gold for Dollar Shave Club when it broke on YouTube last year, spurring so much traffic that the company's server crashed.

"We are building the future of the Dollar Shave Club on the idea we want to be the easiest place for guys to get the things they need every day," he said.
