In a world where peanut butter and jelly, and glazed donut-flavored vodka exists — it’s good to know that there’s still some good old-fashioned vodka-flavored vodka. Maximus Vodka is bringing the testosterone back to clear liquors, and have created an ad campaign to help convince us that it’s still very manly to drink the stuff.
To help drive the point home even further, American artist Mort Künstler was commissioned to supply illustrations of square-jawed scruffy men doing manly things. The accompanying copy challenges the male viewer to stop being such a sissy — using a hard-edged font usually reserved for car magazines and Steve McQueen’s business cards. Drink up, nancy.
We weren’t aware that ordinary mayonnaise was go girly. Nonetheless, Mannaise is the first mayonnaise product for men by men. So, what makes this mayo so manly? Well, for starters, the mascot has an awesome mustache. And this testosterone-fueled condiment includes roasted jalapeños which, as we all know, are the manliest of all jalapeños. Mannaise is currently in its Kickstarter phase — but you can check it out and pledge here.
Recently winning a Gold Lion at Cannes, this Australian spot for Hahn Super Dry officially became the best beer commercial of the year. Using the one-minute spot to prove how manly their beer is — the effective use of beer drums, kung fu, and shag carpeting makes the title a bit hard to argue.
Keep these images in mind, the next time that you try to “Man Up” with Miller Lite.
If the smell of “Cottage Breeze,” or “Lilac Blossoms” isn’t manly enough for you, ManCans scented candles are here to help. Created by boy wonder Hart Main — the 14-yr-old entrepreneur repurposes empty soup cans, and fills them with the testosterone-laden scents of NY Style Pizza, Bacon, and Dirt. Available at ManCans.
Since women were recently awarded their own beer by backwards-thinking marketing execs, then it only seems fair that men receive a beverage that they didn’t ask for. Enter something called Dr Pepper Ten — a ‘diet’ soft drink that packs only 10 calories into its very manly gun metal gray can.
As if having just built a treehouse, the marketing campaign hangs a rather prominent sign of “No Women Allowed”. And if the sad display of machismo seen in the ads, or the attempt to co-opt a diet soda were not embarrassing enough, Dr Pepper Ten’s Facebook page will literally not let females in. That will teach them to try to drink our low-calorie beverage!
