Battle of the Lost pretty boys

It’s a little-known fact that scruffy hunk Josh Holloway had his mind altered by an itinerant Hollywood hypnotist stalker. The unfortunate chap loses control every time a sultry babe pouts at him, forcing him to strip off, dive into the nearest stretch of water and toss his hair like a girl.
It’s true, I tell you.


Meanwhile, his Lost rival Matthew Fox tries to avoid looking embarrassed while attempting to convince men that it’s not effeminate to treat their skin with a product that, despite its pedigree, carries a name that's associated with femininity.


It is like comparing apples and oranges, but at least the Davidoff brand is unashamed in its self-assurance, making an obvious appeal to both female consumers buying the fragrance for their men, and to men to buy it for themselves.
As for L’Oreal, it’s not entirely clear who should be buying this.
Anyway, that's the serious stuff out of the way. Which of these boys pulls it off best? Ladies, which one floats your boat?
It’s the battle of the Lost boys.
Vote on the poll on the right-hand side of the screen.


***Update***
Josh wins!

I can't do it. Both of those ads stink so much.

Yes, but imagine that you are a girl

"The power of cool" - what? God awful. The next one is crap too, granted, but have to go with Matthew Fox, he captured my heart long ago in Party of Five - I was young, ok - and at least he isn't giving it the 'I'm so sexy it hurts to be me' look. Funny thing is, if it were a girl, guys would be drooling, with a guy, it's just funny (or maybe that's just with me).

P.S. Thanks for the link, greatly appreciated!

I'm imagining I'm a girl. I can't do it either.

Come on boys, get in touch with your feminine side.

Marcus Brown said...

Jesus Chimp, this is really hard work.

Elkie said...

Both should have been killed in the ad (hit unconscious & drowned/ heart attack from drugs), and it wopuld serve them right!
If this is today's choice I'm not hungry...

Marcus Brown said...

But what if he has to ACT like he's tired? Honestly, this sucks. Like really sucks (can I swear on this blog?)

Marcus: "sucks" is fucking swearing?

Lisa: "Im so sexy it hurts to be me."
Great one.

Chimpy: I agree with your obervations. Davidoff appears self-assured, even if Holloway does "toss his hair like a girl," while the Tosser Fox seems apologetic about wearing his New Man Mousturizer or Makeup or whatever it is.

And if you're L'Oreal, you should've marketed this under a completely new name. Having a jar labeled "L'Oreal" in your assortment of toiletries would embarrass most men.

Marcus Brown said...

jet packs - no. I was just being polite... you know.

Charles Frith said...

Just imagining I'm a girl and frankly I keep touching myself.

Marcus Brown said...

charles, you know I love you, but sometimes... sometimes...

I would watch Josh Holloway read a cereal box. The man is sex on a trisket!

Thinking In Vain said...

I'm stacking the votes for Sawyer coz Jack's a sissy asshole.

And I don't care if that's changed in the year since I stopped watching.

;)

As far as the ads - I don't like the way Matthew Fox says "You're Worth It" at the end of the ad.

Josh Holloway gets my vote. I salivate just looking at him.
