Here is a man who has been using Close-Up brand of toothpaste for seven years in the hope of attracting a female. However, his hopes have been dashed and now he has decided to sue the brand as it has not aided him in attracting ladies with fresh smelling breath as the toothpaste ads suggest, according to Geobeats.

According to Athony Olatunfe, 26, Unilever Nigeria Limited has been sued and he has demanded that the company prove its claims with lab tests.

In the Close-Up ads, women are shown flocking to men after they brush their teeth, Geobeats says.

Olatunfe says, “No girl ever agreed to even go out for a tea or coffee with me, even though I’m sure they could smell my breath. I always brush my teeth with so much Close-Up gel to make sure the girls get turned on by my fresh breath as they usually show on TV.”

The aggrieved man has submitted all of his used, half-used and unused tubes to the court as evidence. Unilever has been accused of “cheating” and causing him “mental anguish.”

根據《地理脈動》網站報導,有一名男子懷抱著吸引女性的期待,使用「靠近點」牌子的牙膏七年,然而,他的希望破滅了,現在他決定控告這家品牌,因為這款牙膏並未如其廣告所暗示的,幫助他以清新口氣吸引女士。

根據這名二十六歲男子安東尼.奧拉騰菲說法,聯合利華奈及利亞有限公司已被控告,他要求這家公司以實驗室檢驗證明其說法。

《地理脈動》說,「靠近點」牙膏廣告中呈現男性刷牙後,就有女性成群湧上來。

奧拉騰菲說:「就連跟我出去喝杯茶或咖啡,都根本沒有女孩答應,即使我確定她們能聞到我的口氣。我都用很多靠近點牙膏刷牙,以確定女孩會像她們在電視上呈現的那樣,被我的清新口氣吸引。」

這名滿腹委屈的男子將所有他用過、正在使用和尚未用過的牙膏呈給法庭當做證據。聯合利華被指控「詐欺」和造成他「心理痛苦」。
