I was fully expecting the shirtless guy from Southern Comfort’s first “Whatever’s Comfortable” commercial to again work his magic in the brand’s latest ad, so I was a little saddened when this wasn’t the case. Instead of our confident, banana hammock-sporting homeboy, we’re instead introduced to a new guy in Southern Comfort’s “Shampoo” commercial. I was a little leery of Shampoo Guy at first, but as soon as he put on his glasses to give the lady across the way a compelling head nod while holding on to a glass of SoCo on the rocks and getting his hair shampooed, I realized he might just be as cool as our Shirtless, Beach Hunk.
So, now that we’ve got a new “Whatever’s Comfortable” hero to rave about, I have to ask you guys who you think is the better “Whatever’s Comfortable” mascot. Shampoo Guy or Shirtless, Beach Hunk? Before you answer that, I have a handful of categories you may want to consider. I’ve also offered my opinion on who I think should take each category.
Style – Shampoo Guy – Yes, the handlebar mustache is pretty amazing, but those snakeskin boots really sealed the deal for me.
Appeal To The Ladies – Shirtless, Beach Hunk – The fact that I’m even referring to this guy as a “hunk” already shows that he’s a hit with the ladies.
Level Of Comfort – Shampoo Guy – Since both men are part of Southern Comfort’s “Whatever’s Comfortable” campaign this is a pretty vital category. While rocking a Speedo on the beach without a model body is indeed bold, I’ve got to give it to Shampoo Guy for this one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a man getting his hair done at a women’s salon. It takes a lot of confidence in ones self to pull that off, especially comfortably.
Popularity – Shirtless, Beach Hunk – This choice is a little premature since Shampoo Guy is still a pretty fresh addition, but our Lushworthy beach bum is the guy who really set the “Whatever’s Comfortable” campaign off and as a result his popularity will more than likely not be topped.
