Matthew Stafford’s Axe Hair Action Challenge

>> 2.02.2010

When my high school girlfriend and I started dating, she showed her sister a picture of me; her sister reacted thus: “It looks like he spends a lot of time on his hair.

That high school girlfriend is now my wife.  Coincidence?  I think not.

We all know about Matt Stafford’s girl-approved hair.  What we didn’t know before today is exactly how enthusiastically ladies approve of it:

So, as you can see, AXE products (and, apparently, a blue Mustang convertible) help Matt get plenty of “Hair Action”.  Now, he and AXE have turned the tables: they’re challenging you to make a video showing how AXE helps you get Hair Action.

"But Ty," you say. “I have no AXE hair products in my warder, nor digital camcorder with which to make such a film!”  That, my friends, is where you are wrong.  You see, AXE has also partnered with me, and provided me with an AXE Hair Action Challenge Kit to give away.  It contains:

  • 1 Flip Ultra pocket-size DV camcorder
  • 1 AXE leather shaving-kit style bag
  • 1 bottle of AXE shampoo
  • 1 canister of AXE hair putty
  • 1 canister of AXE hair paste
If you look at the Facebook page for the challenge, there are some high-stakes prizes.  There are going to be four separate video sub-challenges, each running for two weeks.  Besides the daily prizes for new submissions, each of these four sub-challenges boast their own grand prize.  After that, there’s a further, ultimate grand prize—the winner of which will get an AXE-subsidized trip to the professional sporting event of their choice.

I want to make sure a Lions fan wins this thing.  It would be a crying shame if the savior of the most beleaguered group of sports fans on Earth issues a worldwide challenge, with a bounty of fabulous prizes at stake, and some stinking Cowboys fan gets showered with undeserved glory.

So, what do you need to do to win the Hair Action Challenge Kit?  A pocket Hercules of digital media, and a treasure trove of excellence de coiffure?  Simply reply to this thread in a comment, with your personal answer to this query:

If you could ask Matt Stafford one question, what would it be?

The winner will be chosen solely by me, based on criteria known solely to me, solely at my completely arbitrary discretion.*  HINT: entries will need to come from a a verifiable person—so please, if you don’t log in/register to comment, include your email address in your entry.  The contest ends on Thursday, February 4th, at 11:59 pm EST.

. . . I’ll also make sure your question gets answered.

*Under section 37B of the contract, it states quite clearly that all offers shall become null and void if -- and you can read it for yourself in this photostatic copy -- "I, the undersigned, shall forfeit all rights, privileges, and licenses herein and herein contained," et cetera, et cetera... "Fax mentis incendium gloria cultum," et cetera, et cetera... "Memo bis punitor delicatum"! It's all there, black and white, clear as crystal! You stole fizzy lifting drinks! You bumped into the ceiling which now has to be washed and sterilized, so you get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!

Question for Matt Stafford: When he gets "hair action" does he prefer to have his head massaged or tugged?

If a previous Lions QB was considered a 'champagne & caviar type guy' what food & beverage would you consider yourself?

David M,  February 2, 2010 at 11:06 AM  


the video didn't work for me. Im not sure if it's something with my settings, but it said it was "no longer available."

Ty,  February 2, 2010 at 11:09 AM  

David M--

Thanks for pointing that out! I'll see if I can get a better copy up there.

Why are you going to succeed when so many other highly drafted Lions quarterbacks failed?


BTW... the Axe conditioner is GREAT. :) Makes my hair super soft, which my girlfriend appreciates.

So my question is,Is it the AXE effect that gets you the girls or is it the Old English "D"?

What weapons or positional talent on the offensive side of the ball are the most important for you to improve?

Id ask him " which would you rather have as a member of the Lions a back that runs a 4.2 and can get open, a fast receiver opposite Calvin to open up the passing game or a massive evil malevolent beast at left Guard to keep fat Defensive tackles from squashing him?"

Do you prefer to have the home crowd cheering you on while the Lions offense has the ball or would you rather have the crowd as quiet as possible? Please let me know which even if I don't win this contest and I'll make it happen. GO LIONS!!!

What do you miss about the college game that you don't see in the pros? And what do you like about the pro level that you wish you had had in college, excluding the money of course.

Why is it OK for dudes to slap other dudes asses in football, but not in any other situation?

The keg you were holding above your head in that famous picture was full, right?

Matt, what do see as your role in the community? Obviously with high unemployment and you making $41.7 Million, what are some specific ways you can give back to the people or help revitalize the area?

We all saw your toughness and desire play out in the Clevland game, but do you think you are tough enough to have played QB back in the days of Dick "Nighttrain" Lane, Butkus or LT before there was more rules to help protect QB's?

What makes a man; is it the woman in his arms, just cuz she has big T!TT!ES; or is it the way he fights everyday?

(to put this question in context please view this youtube

How much money did you make playing at Georgia, and how much more would you have made if you played at USC during that same time period?

Which one of the Lions needs Axe the most? (Cant pick yourself)

Anonymous,  February 4, 2010 at 7:41 PM  

If you could pick anyone not currently in the NFL to be on Lions who would it be and why?

I read that your father used to coach swimming. He must have taught you a thing about it. How good are you at that sport?
