An Indian man is suing the makers of Axe body spray, claiming that in seven years of using the product he has yet to find a girlfriend. Vaibhav Bedi, 26, says that Axe’s racy marketing campaign led him to believe the product had love-potion properties and is seeking around $40,000 in damages. “The company cheated me,” said Bedi. “It says women will be attracted to you if you use Axe. I used it for seven years but no girl came to me.”

Gibson, says a family friend, has decided “that marriage to this person would be a mistake.”
