Ben Affleck vs. Nick Lachey


Did you catch Nick Lachey's sexy new commercial for Axe Click body spray? It shows Nick out and about using a clicker to count each time a woman flirts with him (and many women are flirting -- presumably because of his 1980s-style musk scent Axe body spray rather than his muscular body and cute face!). At the end his pride is ruined, though, as an unknown young man displays the count on his clicker, a number that puts the former Mr. Jessica Simpson to shame.

When I looked to see if anyone had uploaded it on YouTube yet instead I found the exact same ad starring Mr. Jennifer Garner, which apparently ran in Europe earlier this year. I found it rather funny that Ben Affleck would think that his reputation might be sullied by appearing in an Axe ad here in the U.S., but that it was OK overseas. Something tells me Ben's reputation would be better served by keeping his movies out of this country ...

That said, watching the ad (below) reminded me that I wouldn't mind making Big Ben click a few times. Whose body would you rather smell?
UPDATE: Nick's version is now viewable here.

Hmm...I'm not a big fan of either, but I think I'd go with Nick. I like how in this commercial Ben clicked for the gay guy who flirted with him. ;-)

The affleck version of is far superior. The girls are much hotter, and affleck acts it better, particularly in the elevator.

I can't find this version of the song anywhere. Itunes has a million versions, including one by mark stafford, but none of them are the one in this commercial.

I think one of us has misinterpreted the commercial. My take on it is that Nick is relying on his own studliness to earn all the clicks, and the point of the elevator and ending sequence is to make us think that Axe Clix will turn us into even more of a stud than he is.

Ben, definitely Ben - he has always had that sexy bad boy thing - him and Dennis Quaid with their sexy smiles - they slay me!

And to Leonard - Nick clicked for the gay guy too.
