AXE Gets Political With Surprising "Make Love, Not War" Super Bowl Ad

  • “In a world filled with war, the greatest weapon is love. Make love, not war with new AXE Peace™.”

    This is the powerful message of AXE‘s new campaign, in partnership with the Peace One Day organization. The #KissForPeace ad takes a tonal divergence from previous ads for the men’s body spray, which are usually more upbeat and even juvenile, marketing to a stereotypically teenage demographic.

    But there’s no joking matter here, with images of international war, Middle Eastern conflict, North Korean communism, and above all, love conquering all.
