alexander_bickov, thefakehuman and Dev Kumar says: disgusting.

Reality Check counters: That's precisely the point.

The campaign is funny, and a little freaky.

These are frickin stupid. Who the fuck cares about residue under their arms? Seriously? If you do, then you need to go take a good long hard look in the mirror, because you're a tool.

And why are they saying that they're idiots and stupid? If he used deodorant but it left residue then it's hardly his fault.

I'd like to see an ad for tampons where it's just images of seats and they have blood stains on them that say "the stupid bitch should have used Bodyform" or some other rubbish.

These ads were made by fools, for fools. Not even 1/10.

Doin' it for the points

i agree with disco munky
i understand that the tactic used here is the creation of fear amongst image conscious men, of how deodorant residue can negatively impact your life, but it seems a little over-done to the point of irrelevance.

calling people names because they are not using your product isn't clever, it's lazy.

I actually did an essay on this ad, and actually, if you look at it, it's quite a brilliantly executed ad, especially the mans body language, and the colours used.
