Mitchum Sets Clogs on Fire

Armpits are gross. When they sweat, they get grosser. And, if you’re a hairy dude, armpits can really be, well, the pits. They’re not exactly the kind of place you want a loved one or significant other to spend a lot of time.

This television new spot for Mitchum Advanced Control deodorant is part of Mother’s new campaign for the brand called “Love Thy Pits.” Maybe’s it’s because I have a penchant for listening to annoying pop music, but this spot immediately reminded me of Darwin Deezmusic video for his song, “Radar Detector.” Do not click on that link if you are scared of having a trashy, nonsensical hippie get in your head for the rest of the day. What can we say about “Love Thy Pits?” Well, it looks like Mitchum is targeting young hipster professionals who are more frightened of sweating all over their dress shirts than proving their manliness. Credits after the jump.
