It’s really interesting marketing when you consider that the product is for men, but the marketing is targeted to the women who do the shopping. Really interesting. There’s a perception, apparently, that these products are a bit too metrosexual for “real men,” and ads targeted to “real men” haven’t worked out so well.

This is a song for the ladies:
