Axe Apollo might be going to far when they say you have a chance to win a trip to space

Axe Apollo body spray's new commercial ends with an invitation to visit their website for a chance to go to space. Axe, Old Spice, and Carl's Junior are known to offer men an escape into the weird, twisted and sexually charged idea that body spray, deodorant and hamburgers are the closest thing a man gets to being a man. That doesn't bother us as much as it should. But offering visitors to the Axe Apollo Space Academy website a chance to go to space all in the name of body spray pushes the realm of marketing. The odds of winning such a contest: a snowball in hell. False advertisements appear more than Ellen Degeneres with hot women, but we are calling bullshit on this one. Even if Buzz Aldrin dawned a Goodwill space jacket and gave a riveting speech.
