According to AXE Philippines Brand Manager Gem Laforteza, “There are two ways to getting girls notice you, first is to smell awesome and second, be a freaking astronaut,” and the latter is what AXE Philippines has in store for the deserving guy by recruiting the bravest man for the opportunity of a lifetime, and AXE Philippines will make history by sending the First Pinoy Astronaut in a trip to space!
During the launch of this project which AXE is calling the AXE Apollo Space Academy (AASA), AXE announced that they will send untrained civilians with absolutely no business floating around in zero gravity into space. The plan is to send one person from every AXE country on Earth to space, which means that AXE Philippines will soon be making history by funding the first Filipino expedition to space.
The AXE Philippines AASA launch coincides with the global launch held simultaneously in all AXE countries all over the world. AXE has announced that, together with a space travel agency called Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) and XCOR Aerospace, they will be launching great people to space. The AXE Philippines launch was held at Whitespace bar in Makati, Thursday night.
