Ironically, the company markets the product as an intimate wipe. Additionally, Playtext is associated virtually exclusively with female hygiene products. It was, therefore, such a bold move for Andrew to bridge the gender gap. Showcasing to the world and encouraging every sweaty individual to use Fresh+Sexy wipes despite the labeling require bravery.

For this reason, the County Butter convinced him to do a butter commercial; in the company’s advert, John plays up both the taste of the butter as well as its Britishness to the amazement of his fans. He daringly romps through the ad causing some head scratching.
