Astronaut Trumps Heroic Lifeguard in Axe Apollo Super Bowl Commercial

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 29, 2013

If you happen upon a damsel in distress, by all means, save her. Just know that astronauts who happen to be walking by have a far better shot at her heart. 

Not to worry, because all of that will make sense once you take a half-minute to savor the absurd, yet hilarious, Axe Apollo Super Bowl commercial. 

It all begins with a beautiful woman screaming, as a shark swims in her direction. Our Baywatch Bro runs into the water and absolutely annihilates the shark with punches.

I rather like this as an ending to any Jaws reboot that may occur at a later date.

Anyhoo, the lifeguard walks out of the water and onto the beach with this gorgeous woman, laying her down with as much swag as Lando Calrissian. 

There is just one little hiccup to what is an obvious eventual hook-up, and that's the astronaut who saunters onto the beach. 

While having an astronaut on the beach makes absolutely no sense, it works in this particular ad, because Axe Apollo is hoping to send one of you Earthlings to space. 

Just go to the Axe Apollo site and enter before midnight on February 3. 

Only then will you be able to steal the heart of pretty much any woman, even those who were previously saved from sharks. 

At least, that's what the purveyors of this men's fragrance tell us.
