England Is Siberia

Love this Lynx/Axe ad with Ben Affleck. Saw it again on TV here in LA last night.

Except it didn't have Ben Affleck in it.

That's right. A different guy. They obviously filmed the whole thing twice, shot-for-shot, with a different actor.

I can just imagine the conversation between Ben and his agent.

AGENT: "Ben, they want you to do a commercial for Axe. It's two million dollars."

BEN: "Nah, I don't want to do commercials."

AGENT: "It's international only. So it won't be seen by anyone who matters. It will only air in places like, you know, England."

BEN: "Oh, okay. Fine."
