With Father's Day Only Weeks Away...

This is definitely a non-Renaissance post, but these Mandom ads are really too amazing, in all their masculine glory, not to pass along. Mandom: if it still existed, it would make for a great Father's Day present.

Via Ogged. For background on the campaign, see here.

    Wow. Just. . . wow.

    And the company itself certainly does still exist. According to its website,

    "Mandom" derives from the words "Human" and "Freedom."

    It signifies "a group of people committed to unlocking creativity in an environment that respects people and freedom."


    I don't know about you, but I'm glad that I was only alive for a small portion of the 1970s.

    I echo Flavia: wow. i wonder what scent connoted manly, 1970's-tinged freedom while mimicking English BO? Google reveals no clues. Nor does Ebay.

    In the future I will always think of myself as "kitanai Amerika no otoko."

    For anyone who didn't click on the link at the word "here" in Simplicius' post ... Do it.

    Every part of this is more amazing than the rest.
