Break the glass in case she said “no”.
AXE deodorant advertising around the world is based on the bold (but tongue-in-cheek) proposition that use of AXE is irresistible to the opposite sex – “The AXE effect”. This activation offers help for the man who has been snubbed by his female friend – “break the glass in case she said no”. These units were placed in public toilets in popular nightspots where singles meet, and quickly became a talking point around town.
