Axe Morning After Pillow

on December 5, 2012 by Martina Comments

I’m not always a big fan of Axe/Lynx sexist campaigns, but I definitely appreciate when they play with the insights with sense of humor. The latest execution comes from Puerto Rico and tries to provide a solution to guys who try to “escape” the morning after. An inflatable pillow that you can leave behind so that the girl can think you are still there by her side… Read more…

Axe: new generation boyfriends

on March 29, 2012 by Martina Comments

I love the new global campaign for Axe Shower Gel created by BBH London. For once the usual sexist Axe approach (which, to be honest, sometimes I do find amusing) is replaced by the “celebration” of a new generation of boyfriends willing to do anything to please their girlfriends and conquer their hearts (yes, I’m being sarcastic). Of course the girls are portrayed in a stereotyped and extreme way (basically they are all rather bitchy in their own way) but I still think that, in the end the sense of humor in the five commercials prevails, and gives justice more to nowadays’ strong personality girls than to the Axe men.

Axe Spray Away minus the sex

on May 30, 2011 by Mark Comments

Axe has launched a browser widget that allows users to ‘spray away’ sites or articles that they think stink. I don’t think it’s really ‘on brand’ as there is no sex involved but it’s fun for a few minutes anyway

Axe in the Dark

on September 6, 2009 by Martina Comments

In Japan Axe is back with a new weird but cool campaign. Axe in the Dark is an amusing advergame inspired to horror movies full of monsters and with one hero who will (or could) rescue the girl. Everything takes place in a dark cinema hall: the player moves around with the keyboard, trying to avoid to meet the monster and, at the same time, looking for or, better, smelling for the hero who will save her. Make sure to use the hearphones to play.

Once again Axe manages to surprise us. For sure they don’t lack in originality!!
