Street Sweat Box Promotes Degree Deodorant

suckup_street.jpg

Yesterday, Mario Marsicano stumbled upon a street promotion at Park and 53rd in New York City, part of a larger Degree In-Action Heroes promotion which involves the use of action heroes who do good because they, well, use Degree deodorant. The street promotion was a "live" version of the "Suck Up" In-Action Hero who, as the name implies, sucks up to his boss.

Because the man in the In-Action Hero booth is an actual human being, Marsicano wondered what would drive a person to sign up for this thankless job. Well, there's money, of course. But, maybe he just needed a lifetime supply of deodorant. He'll certainly need it standing in that box.

Comments

I just had lunch at Olvera Street in downtown LA today and there he was, the Suck Up, standing in his box. A girl walked up to us and gave us all a free stick of deodorant. I asked him why he would do such a thing and he said "for $15 an hour". I asked him if he was sweating in there (it was hot and sunny today) and he said "Oh, yeah...".
