Students Get the Axe

Unilever’s axe body spray is known for TV commercials showing how the All-American nerd can score with women with just a spritz of the cologne.

Now Axe is letting young upstarts score in a whole different arena. The brand recently awarded $40,000 to three winning teams of New York University’s Stern ProMotion Pictures Film Competition, in a contest pairing business and creative talent from NYU’s Stern School of Business and its Kanbar Institute of Film & Television graduate programs to produce brand-driven short films for marketers.
