Any time you have a Chevrolet Camaro starring in a commercial, you ought to expect that it would be something that should blow your mind. That’s what the Camaro warrants; awe and inspiration from anyone who sees it.

Sometimes, though, things don’t go according to plan, and even something as awesome as a Camaro can’t save you from wondering why people waste their time working on things like this.

By ‘this’, we mean the STR8 Challenger cologne commercial, which, according to someone from YouTube, is being shown in Poland. The commercial starts pretty good actually; the Camaro speeding along a deserted highway but then, something perplexing happens. As the Camaro nears a supermodel-looking girl standing in the middle of the highway – we’ve no idea why she was there in the first place – the car liquefies into a wave of water – or in this case, cologne – after which, the driver somehow ends up on the waiting arms of the vivacious vixen.

On a scale of one to 10 determining just how unequivocally strange this ad is, we’re giving it a 12. Maybe what they’re trying to say is that the STR8 Challenger cologne is going to make you smell like a Camaro.
You didn’t get it, did you? Neither did us.

But I think it’s weird for a cologne company to have a commercial like this one? Sorry to say but it doesn’t have sense at all and for a cologne, you need only a famous model and not a model of a car.

Maybe the Challenger was a bit too mumsydadsy for the commercial? Good name but it ends up seeming like a 4 door saloon that says, "I wanted to get a muscle car, but this is all my wife would let me have." So instead of a car with questionable machismo, they chose to use one that exudes more manliness than all of Arnold Schwarzeneggar’s 80’s action flicks combined.

The name of the cologne is odd, though, especially because they pronounce it "Straight Challenger" So many things popped to mind when I heard the narrator say it, and none were complimentary to the product or those who might wear it.

Yeah! I saw this cologne commercial here in Chicago and I should say it’s a wonderful promotion on which it’s a double purpose, the impression of that car may depend on the cologne to have a good touch for the customers. As we all know, chevy is not that popular so they’ll need a good product just to push up their sales.
