Because even world champions might have dandruff…

You may recall seeing Vettel filming a commercial for Head and Shoulders on the clever blog wtf1.

I thought it was amusing seeing Vettel get made up and everything personally. πŸ˜‰

But, we should also remember that Jenson Button is also a Head and Shoulders spokesman! According to the communications people at Head and Shoulders, their reason for choosing Jenson is:

Head & Shoulders is the number one selling shampoo in the UK so it seemed natural to team up with Jenson as he is a style icon that the everyday man on the street can relate to. British men aspire to him as he has a natural, relaxed approach to grooming which is exactly what Head & Shoulders is all about.

Ok… I guess anyone can get dandruff (even world champions :P). But have any of you actually seen Jenson’s commercial? I haven’t… until today that is. Please watch it… I promise you it’s worth your time.

Did you watch it?

You did, right?

Do you see how “approachable” they have made Jenson? He’s beating egg whites… By the sink? Then he is in traffic. Then he has trouble parking his … uhh lawn mower? Of course it’s then time for a shower, with Head and Shoulders naturally. Followed by a game of Jenga with some kids? After winning like the champion he is, he goes to take photos on a faux podium with some babes?

Uhh. Right. Just a normal guy that everyone can relate to. @_@

Seriously wtf were they thinking… this commercial is just bizarre, especially with the French dubbing. 😑

    I’ve heard lawn mower parking is a big problem in Monaco…
