The Brawny Man completes his metrosexual makeover by becoming the best post-ironic husband ever. He bakes a birthday cake, takes care of cute puppies and even mops up suggestively-shaped spills in suggestive ways. The spot is complemented by an online component that lets you create a short film with clips of the Brawny Man meeting all of your needs, like giving foot rubs, listening to your hopes and dreams, or complimenting your cheekbones in French. And just to be meta-post-ironic, a follow-up spot shows a nightmare in which a husband is trapped in his wife's Brawny Man fantasy.
