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

    I go to an all-girls school so no LYNX (I think that’s the English version of AXE) hallway for me! But we do have a changing toon that stinks of perfume (but it’s usually a nice one so it isn’t too bad).

    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.

    This sound so like one shot manga by Yu Watase about people having scents and that find the matching the right couple means having complimentary scents

    Speaking of elbows, I heard that if you lick someone’s elbow when they aren’t paying attention, they won’t feel it.

  5. Who else wants to see them do a video on Korean toothpaste? I’ve heard of some interesting flavors. Not gross, really, but not familiar. One big question, which I get mixed answers on is: Is there fluoride in any Korean toothpastes? Second question: Can you show us the ingredients lists of typical Korean toothpaste?

  6. After reading your post, I felt the need to say that Loblaw’s bought Shoppers.

    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~

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

    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…….

      possibly for the people that make duct-tape whatever, I’ve seen leopard print and pickle print duct tape. It’s pretty much a marketing strategy hoping OD fans are also crafty with making duct-tape stuff.

    I remember that the high school jock hallway smelled like sweaty socks.

  12. I hope I smell fruity, I like fruity

  13. One day Simon told people to smell their elbows. Several Nasties were reported to suffer from pain in their shoulders and necks afterwards.
    Unless you mean the inside… If so, I can’t really smell anything special. Isn’t it that you can’t feel your own smell because you’re too used to it and you can only smell other people? I need to smell my family members’ elbows…

    WASH YO SMELL, WA-WASH YO SMELL? Yup, I got 4Minute’s song stuck in my head with these changed lyrics now. Seems relevant and makes the choreo look even nastier.

    I remember how I was struck by how different the smell perception can be when a boyfriend visited my roommate and she totally loved his perfume and asked me “doesn’t he smell wonderful?”… And it was that strong, intense old man smell that I hate. Ugh.

    Sidenote: I loved Martina’s hair in this video!

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

  15. inspirit88

    I honestly don’t know what my elbow smells like…

  16. My house smells like high school hallway. My sister has a problem with using too much deodorant/perfume/aftershave/whateverthehellshecanfind. Like she uses so much it’s beginning to seem like she drinks the stuff.

  17. Karen Syc Leon

    Ha ha ha my school was mix but the school facilities for girls and boys were separated in two buildings so I didn’t have those smelly hallways lol the privileges of being a girl.

  18. Leann Reemer

    I totally just tried to smell my elbow. Now my shoulder hurts..:( Would it be weird to ask my husband to smell it? lol.

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

  20. Simon try to play Dota 2. You won’t regret it. :D

  21. Y’all are lucky your schools smell like deoderant. Mine just smells like sweaty football player.

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

  23. Yuki Chae

    so… did it last 24 hours?

    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.

  25. unicornsgalaxy

    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…

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

  27. Veronika Etuta Hrbáčová

    Oh my – could Leigh please do a video about that ancient chinese smell-compatibility theory :D I really wanna know how it works and what I smell as…

  28. Kody James

    OMG…what are you doing to your precious Intern, do you think uncompensated workers just fall out of trees?

  29. Holli Sisson

    Interesting… My dad and I hardly ever get bitten by mosquitoes. If I do get bitten it just itches a little for a day and then it’s gone.

    Also on a side note, depending on your body chemistry you can smell differently with different perfumes or cologne. For instance, if I spray certain perfumes on myself, they will smell pretty good, but if my mom sprayed the same one she smells like she sprayed herself with bug spray, baby powder, or shea butter (not what the original perfume smelled like).

  30. Maarja Jürgens

    But did it work?

  31. Tuwa Liking

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

  32. S&M, next time when you do these WTF episodes, can you please show the product close up please? Like in the last banana holder WTF, you were talking abt the locks and stuff but I could not see what you were talking about because I couldn’t see it close up.

    Thanks :)

  33. i think AXE was created by Satan

  34. 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! ;)

  35. silverdoodles

    I’m always being bitten by mosquitos, like a lot in one sitting. I wonder if I smell really sweet then haha. Interesting stuff.

  36. deshi

    Wait old people deodorant? Like old spice?

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

  38. Jose Tang

    when ever I see WTF, I always think Wat The F***. oh my..

  39. Hahaha I kind of agree with everyone about the suffocating Axe hallway, BUTTTTTT *Don’t shoot me*
    There were some guys in my high school that had REALLY BAD BO, and I’m sure every high school had at least one of these boys, THESE BOYS WHO DON’T ACKNOWLEDGE THEIR SMELLL. So although I hated that Axe-smelling hallway back in the day…I would rather smell Axe all day then sniff deadly BO fumes for 5 minutes hahah. o.o This might sound like an overreaction, but I really can’t stand anyone who doesn’t have the decency to take care of themselves XD Too much Axe>No Axe at all! :D
