I have seen that add for mens deodorant, that has gorgeous women leaping on the wearer, or at least throwing themselves at his feet.

I have seen the other adds where the male star has not shaven for a day or 3, the stubble or 5 oíclock shadow inferring strong attractive masculinity.

I have seen the blond surfer with his tousled locks attracting the ladies in droves. And I have seen them ogling the bloke in the lovely convertible.

Well I bought some of that smelly stuff, used it liberally, & didnít shave, which I admit left more a silver haze than dark shadow. I thought my silver hair was pretty close to blond, so didnít use a comb after driving my lovely convertible sports car to town. I donít usually drive this car to town, as it is too nice for car park dings.

I must admit I am disillusioned. There were many attractive ladies in town today, but not one leapt on me, or even threw themselves at my feet.

Do you think I am doing something wrong, or could these adverts be exaggerating the effectiveness of their products?

"Don't believe TV adds".

TV adds what?

As to the efficacy of the products, I'm in agreement. I used the deodorant in question and certainly didn't notice ANY increase in the number of women throwing themselves at me. Just the usual 50% or so.

Hi there HASBEEN...

These damn ads get right up my nose - " Ring the 'M...O' Clinic and get the 'all on 4' to give you that great smile once more". "After all we invented the process" If I could find the originator of that ad, I would do a Mexican Hat Dance on his bloody face! He'd need far more than 'All on 4' to help him out, believe me! Almost every damn second, we're assailed with this annoying, "All on 4" Ad. and boy, do you get utterly sick of it.

I use my personality to fend off the hordes of deranged females that seek my company after I use a cheap underarm deo.

Dear Hassie,

One of my favourite TV commercials has to be
Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins, and the TRADIE
workwear commercial.

His phrases - like " Tough as a woodpecker's lips,"
"Cradle for his clackers," and "Well butter my buns
and call me biscuit!" and - "fart filter," are a hoot.

Totally believable!

What gets to me is that pouting or pursing of the lips expression of all young people in any photo that gets taken of them lately.
