When Andrew W.K. announced that he'd be the new spokesman for Playtex Fresh + Sexy Wipes ("Whether you just finished rocking a packed club or have an intimate encounter after a busy day, this product will make couples feel brand new," he said in a press release), it caused a media firestorm. And it also caused a firestorm here at Guy Code Blog, 'cause we've been on the male wipes train for months.
We asked the hard-partying rock star for his thoughts on everything from personal hygiene to... uh... Brad Pitt and self-fellatio? You're not gonna have a normal conversation with this dude, but you'll definitely have a fun one.
How did Playtex approach you about this endorsement?
Personally I was given this product, the Fresh + Sexy Wipes, to help me be a little bit better of my own self. There's times when I've realized I'm not a very clean individual, but I always wanted to be clean where it counts. Playtex saw that, the potential I had in that realm, the realm, I really mean that realm, that intimate realm.
I'm not the cleanest guy in the world. I'm headbanging 24, 25 hours a day at this point. I could use a little help in that department, to freshen. I don't need it. I don't need this. Nobody NEEDS this. You WANT this. You don't NEED to clean yourself. You just need to drink water and eat some kind of food. You make choices about what you want, what you desire, what you deserve.
Brad Pitt uses baby wipes. So does Will.i.am. Do you think this is part of a growing movement for guys?
Brad Pitt, he's as handsome and beautiful as a man can get. He really is great. He's got a lot of chutzpah, a lot to offer. I wouldn't say he's taken a lot of risks, but if he wants to clean himself up, that's fine, all right? Actually, I don't think he's that great. He's got a nice face. Just growing a beard, that doesn't do it. That doesn't count.
After "Fight Club" and "Inglourious Basterds," you don't think he's that great?
Yeah, you're right. I take it back.
