A brilliant ad, although I doubt if Axe ever published it.
That way I am guessing the conversion rate of ads produced to ads published must be very low.When one of my professors was talking about the Axe Academy, I thought Axe was losing it. However in hindsight, after following their campaigns over a period of time I stand corrected. They were always mad. They have just become hysterical.
Despite the madness,Axe is one brand that hasnt moved away from its original positioning.And their campaigns are as good as Absolut. Not blatantly placing the product on screen, yet getting the point across... Probably thats the idea.
