And I thought I had problems...

Unable to attract even a single girl, frustrated man sues Axe
Published on October 19, 2009 by Pagal Patrakar

New Delhi. In what could prove to be a major marketing and legal embarrassment for Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL), a 26-year-old man has filed a case against the FMCG company, which owns the Axe brand of men grooming products, for ‘cheating’ and causing him ‘mental suffering’. The plaintiff has cited his failure to attract any girl at all even though he’s been using Axe products for over seven years now. Axe advertisements suggest that the products help men in instantly attracting women.

Vaibhav Bedi, the petitioner, also surrendered all his used, unused and half-used deodorant sprays, perfume sticks and roll-ons, anti-perspirants, aftershaves, body washes, shampoos, and hair gels to the court, and demanded a laboratory test of the products and narcotics test of the brand managers of Axe. Vaibhav was pushed to take this step when his bai (maid) beat him with a broom when he tried to impress her by appearing naked in front of her after applying all the Axe products.

He failed to read the small print at the bottom of each bottle:

"Disclaimer: User must be attractive, youthful, energetic, happy, well-groomed, well-mannered, charismatic, interesting and wealthy, for this product to take its full, advertised effect."

They should add "and definitely not creepy" to that disclaimer.

I would but I don't think my brain could handle any more stupidity. Forever alone, indeed. Laugh

No, no, no En-Lugal; don't sell yourself short. I think your brain could handle much more stupidity. 😛 :shh: And, if not for the need for sleep, I'd have that out for your consumption most hastily. 😉 Sweet dreams, all.
