    I LOVED THE AXE Towels from the first time I saw them. I was reading “Brand Hijack” and they mentioned that they produced branded ‘swag’ in small enough quantities and without access to the public so that brand affectionadio’s would have to steal it adding to the story.
    “Swipe Worthy” were the words used. As soon as I saw those towels all I could think was “I have to steal one of those…”
    On one more note, they should stealth those towels with man hands into gay bath houses, it would be a huge push for the heterosexual brand and could be done without the core consumer group being alerted.
    Farrukh,
    Middle Eastern Advertising awareness is great for the world. Shows us how much we all have in common. Also it casts the Middle east in a totality different like, the “ctrl + Z” targeted at women who work in a professional world is not the kind of thing most people States side are shown.
    Good luck and keep it up.
