Ok, so here’s the deal:

This isn’t really a magical item that’s quirky. We were just out in an Olive Young, which is, like, Shopper’s Drug Mart in Canada, which is, like, I don’t know what else to compare it to from whatever country you’re from. A place where you buy general cosmetics and razors and crap. What’s that called? Pharmaceutery? Yep. That’s the name of it for sure. Pharmaceutery.

Point being, we saw a whole line up of Psy stuff, and we found this to be the oddest. Advertising the sweatiest guy in Kpop, who acknowledges his sweatiness in videos, doesn’t really seem like a good business model for deodorant, or am I wrong? Or is it smart? Wouldn’t it be like getting the lady that failed her driving test so spectacularly to advertise a car? Or is that a bad comparison? I don’t know.

Anyhoodledoodlepoodle, we tried this stuff out and it wasn’t that great. It had old man smell. Some people like that. Old men like cologne that has old man smell to it, for some reason, like wood and musk and deer piss and stuff like that. I’m not fond of it. We did a test half an hour afterwards to see how it smelled. Smelled worse than the undeodorized armpit. I’M SORRY PSY! I LIKE YOUR MUSIC BUT NOT THIS DEODORANT. I’m sure the crazy Psy fangirls will go nuts on me now. HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT ABOUT PSY HE WORKS SO HARD! Shut it, ok! I have the right to say I like one thing and not like another! “Gentleman” is still my favourite song out of Korea this year.

Leigh told us something last night that I couldn’t remember all of the details of because I was really sleepy: in Chinese medicine or something there are four distinct smells that a body has, and supposedly different smells make for better love matches. There’s sweet smell, fruity smell, some other smell, and death musk smell. Death musk. Then Leigh went around and smelled everyone’s elbows. I AIN’T MAKING THIS UP OK! I smell like death musk. Martina smells like sweetness. And supposedly that’s the right combination. It makes us a better match, because of our smells. Can anyone with more knowledge on the subject tell me more? Alls I know is that Martina gets eaten by all of the mosquitos because she smells sweet and the mosquitos don’t touch me. I just go out with Martina and say “eat her” and they do.

What am I rambling about? A few things: 1) This thing was odd 2) Psy don’t hate me we can still be friends 3) Smell your elbows 4) If you like these WTF videos (next week’s WTF will be a lot more WTF-ish) click on this button below. It raises the intensity level of these videos 100 fold. Word

  1. The different smells being suited to each other actually mirrors the result of a Western experiment. The Smelly T Shirt test. The idea was that in mammals, its evolutionarily advantageous to chose a mate with certain immune elements (MHC complexes) that are very different than yours, so that your offspring will be resistant to the greatest number of diseases. Mice can tell by smell which animals have a different MHC through smelling pheromones. They did an experiment with college students to see if humans can detect those differences. They gave all the guys in the class a clean t-shirt and had them sleep in it for a night. They then bagged the shirts up, and had the girls in the class sniff each and then select those that were the best smelling. Then they typed everyone at their MHC complex. The women preferred the smell of the t-shirts of men who had MHC Complexes that were the most different from their own.

  2. Seeing Simon spray so much deodorant on Martine reminds me of my friend who’s addicted to it. She can spray half a bottle deo in a closed room and not die from odor.
    I should buy her that psy deodorant maybe she’ll calm down if she smells like old men kekeke~

  3. This blog post was hilarious. Simon I think you need a nap or something! :)

  4. I’ll now be trying to smell my own elbow. Thank you very much…
    .
    .
    .
    Then off to smell my boyfriends!!!!! muahaha!!

  5. Keeping with the odd product placement, I found a bin of One Direction duck tape at one of the big box stores in USA. Not quite sure what I’d want to duck tape with One Direction…….

  6. “You can’t feel your own smell”

    Um…If your smell is so strong people can feel it, you have big problems! ^^

  7. Martina you look absolutely gorgeous in this video! Your hair is beautiful!

  8. I can not believe what I just saw. Simon sticks his hand under his armpit then sniffs it! Oooh, you so naaasty!

  9. I concur, we are in need of ‘Sexy Product shots’ included, or possibly just added into the written article itself.

  10. Martina! How did you do your hair in this video? Please do a tutorial!!

  11. Reading the comments, it seems it is mostly the males who spray deodorant everywhere, but in my school it was mostly the females! You couldn’t go into the female loos without being greeted with a stench of cigarette smoke and too much spray. Yikes.

  12. I tried smelling my elbow but couldn’t really reach so settled for smelling the inside of it, looked up only to find my cat staring at me with a huge “WTF are you doing” face….strangely, this is not the first time he has given me that look. LOL

    Now I’m really curious what kind of musk I smell like…

  13. but i can’t reach my elbow!!!!!!!!!

  14. The Leigh come over, smell our arm pits part was hilarious…

  15. TL-DR: Simon’s comment on panther piss makes me reminiscent of Will Ferrell’s classic Anchorman.

    Time to musk up. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman? Or wait…no, no, no hold on, Black Beard’s Delight? No, she gets a special cologne. It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries. Yup, it’s made with bits of real panther so you know it’s good. It’s quite pungent….OMG…what is that smell? Ugh. That’s the smell of desire, my lady. hahahaha When Simon said “panther piss,” I says to myself, tonight seems like a Ron Burgundy movie night. Stay classy, Nasties! ;)

  16. Wait old people deodorant? Like old spice?

  17. My old high school hallways smelled like old moldy books rather than overpowering deodorant sprays

  18. So should online dating sites be asking what your elbows smell like?

  19. Ooooh-kay!
    When I was in high school (like in 2009) the guys would DESTROY the air with their abusive overuse of Axe body spray. It was horrible… Like, I have war flashbacks whenever I think of it. :C
    I do not approve.

    • I am in my 40s and my husband uses AXE body spray, but just a bit and only certain “flavours” and it works really well for him. He says the Life Brand mock up is actually better (??), he smells great though. I think it’s just a matter of teenagers overdoing it. On the other hand, “Skin Bracer” aftershave for men by Mennen, one of the oldest, cheapest ones you can get, has had me physically follow men more than once. Seriously, I am attracted to the smell that much. Can’t get my husband to wear it though because he’s too posh – LOL!

  20. ahahhahahahahaha I’m totally going to start smelling my friends’ elbows ahahahaha XD

  21. What exactly does ‘Death Musk’ smell like Simon…do tell

  22. The guys at my high school would prank each other by spraying half a can of Axe spray into their friends’ lockers. Walking down the hallways you’d literally see clouds of the stuff!

  23. And next thing you know, there is a deodorant for elbows…

  24. But wouldn’t your elbows smell like your table?

  25. Now I’m seriously worried I smell like death musk. :S

  26. Being a Canadian raised Chinese, we were introduced to deodorant in health class. A bought a few sticks because I saw that everyone else was trying them out too but a couple weeks later I was told I don’t need them because even though I sweat a lot, my BO isn’t noticeable at all o – o”

    About the topic of East Asia and sprays: I always see these immigrants from East Asia around the city, as well and in my school AND THEY ALL HAVE THIS FRESH SCENT AROUND THEM. So sometimes, I stop and ask them what perfume they use and stuff, and I know now that East Asians are really freaking into sprays. Perfumes, body sprays, etc etc (lotions as well actually) but a lot of the people I’ve talked too aren’t really used to the idea of deodorant. “Rubbing a stick of wax like substance so our sweat won’t smell”

    THE AXE HALLWAY. We had that in middle school. MY HIGHSCHOOL JUST BASICALLY SMELLS LIKE AXE IN EVERY SINGLE LOCKER HALLWAY. The thing is though, there’s a ban on spray cans because some people are allergic or have asthma. I have mild asthma so I always have to slightly cover my face when moving around from class to class =_=” It’s really freaking annoying, especially since axe has all those wierdass scents now. “Women axe, Chocolate axe”

    My friends use me as mosquito bait TT^TT It’s so sad but it actually works. And I’m allergic to mosquitos so the normal pimple sized bump swells up to like 10x what it’s supposed to be. Freaking hate mosquitos -_-” I always have to carry around a bottle of allergy pills during the summer. Sad life.

  27. my wife gets eaten by all the mosquitoes, fleas, etc. too. As an added bonus, insect bites don’t make me feel very itchy, but my poor wife scratches the bites till they bleed.

  28. Nooo highschool hallway smell! Horrible memories! /dies

  29. I’m curious about this 4 different scent thing I hope it isn’t Leigh trying to troll people T.T

  30. Is me or Simon looks more blonde in this video?

  31. This is one the times I’m glad smell-o-vision does not exist.

  32. Was that a trick on us Simon? I can’t smell my elbows! *~*

  33. Simon’s randomness in the third paragraph…it was perfect lol. But seriously I smell sweet and I always get bitten so hopefully I’ll find my true love through smell

  34. Martiiiiinnaaa, we’re going to need another makeup and hair tutorial from this one! :3

  35. OMG I can’t believe Leigh smelled your armpits!! Total intern abuse LOL

  36. Exactly how does one smell their own elbows?
