Their first underwear ads for Bench Body caused quite a controversial stir after the gigantic billboards (especially the ones at Guadalupe Bridge) were removed by MMDA Officials for provoking more than just the desire to buy a bikini/boxer brief or two. It did not dampen the team that recently topped the A5N (Asian Five Nations) Rugby Championships – the country’s first-ever win. As a result, Bench owner was inspired to schedule a new photoshoot for the boys. This time around, they were asked to wear more traditional – albeit less traditionally-designed – lower undergarments. And with a lot of black grease slapped on their muscular bodies at that.
Do you like the new concept? Well, I patronize Bench Body regardless so with or without this ad, it won’t matter. What I love, however, is the commitment of all the members to play for national pride despite majority of them being born and raised in other parts of the world. 😉
