English Description
In this commercial, noted survivalist and adventurer Bear Grylls puts new Degree antiperspirant with MotionSense Technology to the test with the help of his loyal assistant Cubby. MotionSense is activated by movement, so Bear assembles a “perpetual motion simulator” (basically a human hamster wheel) from rocks, sticks, and underbrush. To see how the MotionSense Technology responds to very intense movement, Bear throws Cubby a fish from a nearby stream. This attracts the attention of a ferocious grizzly bear. As Cubby runs for his life from the ravenous predator, the Degree antiperspirant keeps Cubby’s armpits fresh and dry. Bear Grylls is satisfied that the MotionSense Technology will keep Cubby sweat-free, so he leaves Cubby to continue the test on his own. His final words to a terrified and exhausted Cubby as he’s walking off into the wild: “Keep running!”
