    I couldn’t understand the artwork at first….
    cos it looks like the truck is about to speed over a cliff, and someone was thrown out.


    But I think the idea is supposed to be that the truckers are jumping free of the truck…
    which is full of Axe Body Wash,
    and headed straight for the patchouli oil factory….
    (somehow hitting it even after the road disappears?)


    When they collide, and the products mix, the resulting cloud of … well, let’s say “aroma”…
    will kill all the life forms on the planet.


    Makes sense…
    I mean, a little patchouli is OK …
    just smells like old hippies
    or those newly hatched baby hippie wanna-bes (so cute) …


    But a LOT of it is deadly….
    and merely opening a bottle of anything from Axe can clear a room.

    In 1967 when I first arrived in San Francisco patchouli was the dominant scent on Haight Street. It quickly became, to me, the fragrance of love, dope, and sex.

    It’s you guys of the second generation that equate it with filth and malodorous bodies.

    I almost always have a shiver of “highness” when I smell or wear patchouli.

    Ooooh. NOW I get it. Never smelled Axe, so I can’t comment on it. I HAVE smelled a lot of old hippies, though. Hard to miss it if you are within 50 feet or so.
