I just HAVE to whine about the AXE commercial
I got no affirmative response when I told them about my views on the following subject:
The AXE Deodorant commercial, which starts with two naked young people, looking for their innermost pieces of clothing, then working their way outwards, through the city, back to the supermarket where they so miraculously found each other. The moment they saw each other must have been so heavenly amazing, because, as we see, they started to undress on the spot (the girls left sock was found somewhere between the dogfood and the pesticides). And I just can't stand it! Am I cynical or just jealous? They just walk there, picking up their hastily dropped clothes, smiling at each other. I mean, thousands of people must have wondered, throughout the day, "whose clothes ARE these?". They should have known, these beautiful young people were just cuddling, didn't care about a thing in the world. Just wonderful.
But thankfully, when I spoke to Lotta, my equally cynical and jealous soulmate (noo, just joking), she kind of agreed. So, I'm not completely alone with these feelings of anger directed towards this kind of... behaviour.
