When you think of advertisements for Axe products, your mind probably recalls images of oversexed girls flocking to guys and mouthing sexual innuendos – basically the hyperbolic male fantasy played out in real life.
But a new spot from the company has a different tone. Gone is the “use our product and you’ll be eyes-deep in tail” message, having now been replaced with a motivational plea to young men out there to be bold and have no fear – or you’ll regret it.
In the kick off to their “Fear No Susan Glenn” campaign, Axe has employed Kiefer Sutherland and his made-for-voiceover pipes to recall a time when he did in fact fear Susan Glenn, the girl he never approached because he didn’t think he had a chance.
It’s a much different Axe commercial than what you’ve seen in the past, plus the whole Jack Bauer presence makes it really stand out.

We think that it’s an incredibly well done advert – what say you?[h/t Mashable]
