Posted on 01/16/2014 5:34:12 PM PST by nickcarraway
Here's a man who has been using 'Close-up' brand of toothpaste for seven years in the hope of attracting a female. However, his hopes have been dashed and now he has decided to sue the brand as it has not aided him in attracting ladies with fresh smelling breath as the toothpaste ads suggest, according to Geobeats.
According to the 26-year-old man, Unilever Nigeria Limited has been sued and he has demanded that the company prove its claims with lab tests.
In the Close-up ads, women are shown flocking to men after they brush their teeth, Geobeats says.
Athony Olatunfe says: "No girl ever agreed to even go out for a tea or coffee with me, even though Im sure they could smell my breath. I always brush my teeth with so much close up gel to make sure the girls get turned on by my fresh breath as they usually show on TV."
The aggrieved man has submitted all of his used, half-used and unused tubes to the court as evidence.
Unliever has been accused of 'cheating' and causing him 'mental anguish'.
Beer, soap and fragrance makers on alert.
It must be the tie.
GOOD FOR HIM!
seven years of paying for services not received....
let’s hope he receives a BIG award!
Guess i need to proceed with my Axe lawsuit then...: )
Why doesn’t Prince Nogettawoman just send out an email like every other Nigerian?
If only he had used Hai Karate....then he would have to fight off the girls.
LOL LOVE IT.
.we should all be suing companies that use deceptive advertising which includes approximately all of them.
And we should sue colleges that issue degrees to morons. Or to colleges that do not actually teach much besides political correctness, leaving graduates un prepared to do any actual work. *Thinking of J School (Journalism)
The fellas couldn’t stay away, however.
Arrrgghhh!! My old lady came home with some of that soap for me cause it was on sale. I really liked the soap, but one day in the shower I noticed the little ditty on the back about "unlimited female attention". Really?!? I just can't believe that guys would be that schtoopit. But then again I ain't a marketing professional. d;^)
I don't use it anymore. That's just too much. d:^)
Maybe if he ditched the Mr. Spock costume, that would help.
And your wife gave it to you? What message is she trying to send?
He could try Old Spice but the commercials I saw always had a guy waiting for some dude to get back from his boat trip.
I’m sure the tie ain’t helping ... just saying.
Along with the tie, there’s the obvious question of technique.
If he’s getting women he barely knows close enough that they can smell his breath, he might - just *might* - mind you, be perceived as a bit ....... forward(?)
Humorous, but true story. There are three colognes I wear with any regularity. Two are relatively high-end, which I like. The third is Aqua Velva musk. My dad wore it, and when I splash it on, the smell reminds me of him all day. Ironically, it is by far, the scent I get the most compliments on...
I dab a little Hoppes #9 behind the ears - doesn’t attract many women, but it attracts the right kind!
Maybe it's the "Gilligan" hat.
Yeah we were noticing that too — but hadn’t put the ‘Gilligan’ label on it. Good call.
Oh wow... saw that and the first thing I thought was lowbridge scam baiting the Nigerian scammers. He has some epics tales.
“He should change brands and start using Ultra Bright. That brand gives you sex appeal! “
Both Close Up and Ultra Bright were premium reactions to Crest and Colgate in the 60s & 70s. Now they are Dollar Store brands.
Regarding the merits of the case, I learned my lesson when I was 8 snd discovered that Lifebuoy soap doesn’t really let you walk two feet in the air.
“close-up” cannot overcome goat.
That dude is 26 ?!?
He looks like Evander Holyfields older cousin
I guess so.
That’s just the pic I found that matched the story.
(It had similar text and the source wasn’t on the “bad” list, so I guess that’s him.)
Maybe not getting the chicks makes you age prematurely.
I’ll be right over! ;-)
Everyone knows f you want to attract women you have to use Hai Karate..
But it will give you a bad case of "Soap Poisoning."
Sposed to be certified, too!
Finally! It’s about time somebody sued for such blatant false advertising!
Yeah, but they don't SAY that women will flock to you.
It's different from when I drink a Coke, and a volleyball game between twenty-somethings in swimsuits breaks out.
Has he watched any American beer commercials yet?
I almost did that to the folks who made Brylcreem. It was the ads saying, “Brylcreem, a little dab’ll do ya, all the girls’ll pursue ya” that made me use it. %0 years and no hair later and it never worked - one of these days I’ll get rid of the 3 cases I still have from the mother lode I amassed with thoughts of being surrounded by all the girls.
If he wins, Axe is in big trouble...
I remember when I was young, I splashed on Hai Karate and waited... ;)
I save the Aqua Velva for Happy Hour...
Next thing you know, someone will claim that Ploum Ploum doesn’t really work.
