Commercial Appeal

Daniel Johnston Soundtracks Axe Commercial

By Corban Goble / August 21, 2012

This ad for Axe Body Spray operates under the premise that the first thing women see, while sizing up the opposite sex, is a man’s hair, and the first thing men see are a woman’s breasts. It’s a bit of a crude sentiment, but when you compare it to the Axe ads of yore, it’s downright chaste. Oh, and it’s scored by Daniel Johnston’s classic “True Love Will Find You In The End.” You know who could use some Body Spray? Space Ducks. Watch it below.

I still prefer the Kiefer Sutherland voiceover, however.
