Deodorant is a staple of of a good hygiene, especially with temperatures amping up into spring and summer. The Japanese men's cosmetic brand Gatsby is introducing a new line of men's deodorants and hopes to make the product memorable with a unique advertising campaign.
You might be thinking, "what exactly did I just watch?" The answer is simple: you saw seven warriors representing different odors. If you don't associate the "spicy" smell of body odor as a blonde guy with a Gatling gun, you're just not on Gatsby's level.
