Hilarious Axe ad campaign tells geeks to 'get a girlfriend'

Photos of the nasty deodorant spray's funny ads.


Axe body spray is just about the nastiest stuff on the planet--trust me, guys, don't wear it, it's girl repellent and is really only good for covering up scents that might make the cops come a'knocking--but they did come out with a particularly clever ad campaign. It's not often that ads me laugh out loud for real, but these did.

A series of photographs show visual tableaux of young fellows who clearly have spent too much time doing somewhat pointless things (training frogs to jump, occupying all ten high-score spots on an arcade video game, building a life-size Egyptian sarcophagus out of Legos) and accompanying them with the simple message of "Get a girlfriend."


However, the message remains lame, as one fellow CNET writer (who will remain anonymous) put it: "I just cant stand the blatant claim: 'spray our compressed chemicals all over your body and women will instantly want to (expletive) you.'" Well put, buddy.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
