English Description
3 men sit in a living room watching TV, one of them starts itching his chest. His friends ask why he's itching, he says he waxed his chest. His man points go "-5", they then ask why did he wax his chest. At which point he stands up and rips open his shirt to reveal an eagle tattoo accross his chest. They all jump for joy and he earns "15" man points.

The objective of the ads was to maintain the Hilux’s image of toughness and make sure that the toughness of the Hilux rubs off on the driver in a tongue-in-cheek, laddish kind of way, while at the same time driving the consumer to the Man-Up website- the cornerstone of the campaign.
