Good news for fraternity brothers, Von Dutch enthusiests and Nickleback fans across America: Unilever has announced plans to release Axe Dark Temptation, a body spray that drives women wild because it smells like chocolate, in the US next month. The Dark Temptation Chocolate Man marketing campaign, which has already raised eyebrows in India and elsewhere, released itâ€™s first US commercial online last month.
This isnâ€™t the first time Unilever has taken some flack for its Axe marketing efforts. Still, thereâ€™s something vaguely unsettling about this particular campaign. Something about all of those nice girlsâ€¦ overcome by the â€˜dark temptationâ€™â€¦ of the chocolate manâ€¦ whipped into a frenzy of desireâ€¦ by his big, powerfulâ€¦ fragrance?
Yeah, itâ€™s probably nothing. Anyway, I hear itâ€™s huge in the Netherlands.
