Top-Heavy Metal

Published on .

Women are rubbing frying pans on their butts, communing on the floor with toasters, fondling staplers, inhaling tin foil and getting up close and personal with metal walls. Why? Because some skinny lad tossed his empty Axe body spray into the recycling bin and there's a "new, longer lasting Axe effect." This is all shot in steely, evocative near black and white by none other than Noam Murro. Languid, metallic-tinkly mood music makes it work like a magnetic charm. We're buying Axe and lining our boxers with lead.
