If Axe Body Spray commercials weren’t bad enough, this latest one from Argentina has taken it to a whole new level. The marketing for this body spray brand has never worked for me: “Hey guys, spray this cheap, mass-marketed fragrance all over yourself and you’ll have horny women climbing all over you.” Barf. Well, in this latest commercial, they also promote cheating on your girlfriend.
At a restaurant, we follow a few guys that are each on their date with their girlfriends. When they get into the men’s room, there are a bunch of strippers waiting for them, complete with a stripper pole. They call it the “Axe Strip Toilette“. The men taken an extended bathroom break with these sex workers while their unsuspecting date waits patiently at the table. The message? Why just go on a boring date with your girlfriend when you can spray axe on and have sex with a bunch of strippers instead. That’s more fun and you’d be way cooler if you did. Check out the commercial below along with the translation of what is said.
Since many of you are not able to read the transcript of the commercial, here’s what it says:
Last September 24th it was Boyfriend’s Day.
What does Axe have to say to boyfriends?
Hey, dude. There’s nothing to celebrate.
We know you want to be with all of them, except with the one you’re with.
That’s why we set up some secret installation in the men’s room,
And gave them 5 minutes of singledom.
Welcome to the Axe Strip Toilette.
This is just a way of reminding guys that they are “castrating themselves” [Ed. note: Down here when you say a guy is "castrated," it means he only does what his girlfriend/wife says.]
…limiting the power of the Axe effect to just one girl.”
Girl: What took you so long?
Guy: The restroom was a mess.
Girl: Oh, sorry to hear that.
