Beauty Flashback: Hai Karate Aftershave

Oh my. A Buddy Holly lookalike shows up to take his special ladyfriend on a date, but the aftershave is just too much for her to resist. Our hero must fend the vixen off with fake martial arts moves. Every bottle of Hai Karate came with a self-defense instruction booklet — y'know, to keep the ladies from overtaking the aftershave-doused dudes. Uh huh.

LOL - that was hilarious! Maybe Axe did copy the lameness factor from this commercial.

I gave that to my dad for Father's Day one year when I was about 9 or 10. It didn't smell as bad as you might think, given the name and the advertising.
