English Synopsis
The Axe Detailer was created to convert 14-24 yo male bar soap users to shower gel. It had a successful launch in 2008, but some guys still hadn’t tried it. To create more awareness, we had to let guys know that Axe Shower Gel and the Axe Detailer will give them the ultimate clean. But in order to break through we needed to tell them in a way that was just as edgy and funny as the content they consume and pass along to their friends online. We needed to tell them that the Axe Detailer, “Cleans your balls.”
