CAIRO — Deodorant brand Axe has donned a new look here after seven years. To seal the deal (and underscore its reputation as the scent of seduction), Axe has launched a new spot from Egypt that traces "the evolution of hooking up" since 2007.
From "missed calls" to MSN Messenger, a whole range of ways of connecting in yesteryears is recalled in the film. It also explains how the buffet has given way to organic and naturally good food, swimsuits have become two-pieces and two-meter shoes are the norm.
The spot urges viewers not to worry, as Axe has got their back – whether at the airport, in the car, or at the local grocery.
After introducing the brand’s new look and formula with the promise of a "greater chance of hooking up," the film invites viewers to go to newaxe.com and become the star of the video.
