A recent ad for Lynx makes me want to draw wings and halos:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=3C7-v_…

The product may carry the "cheap, teenage smell of desperation", but that naïve angel is damn cute :D

"Lynx" is known as "Axe" in some regions. Not quite sure why.
Say the word "Lynx" and it conjures imagery of lithe, feline predators.
What springs to mind when you say "Axe"?

Lumberjacks.


……….and murder.

Very nice advertisement. Didn't know that about the product. I just assumed it was called axe due to lazy marketing and an attempt to conjure up something symbolic in the American psyche (not sure what).

It is as silly as the fact, that "Twix" was called "Raider" in many parts of europe ...

I don't get why the name is different but I hope to god the UK version smells better than the US version. Axe smells like ass. I only know one person that actually likes axe, and they're a freshman in highschool...

I haven't found a Lynx advert I like since the dark temptation where one guy who wears it becomes chocolate. Props to this find, especially with the Fiat 128 Spider.

Lynx was known as a 'highschool shower' when I used to go to high school, as many surfer-types attended and frequently used it as a bathing substitute.

It's Axe in the US. We're apparently not sophisticated enough to appreciate a name like Lynx.

When I think of Axe I think of Vikings carrying off captive women. Then again, that's probably just me.
