Secret Deodorant’s Pre-Date Freakout: Is It Brendan Or Brandon?

I’m torn whether this Secret commercial is amusing or annoying. Maybe it’s both. Brendan and Brandon are quite similar names that I’ve confused before. Has anyone reading done awkward pre-date stuff like this? Hopefully if you did, you didn’t get caught like poor Caitlin, who’s played by a real-life Caitlin, Caitlin Brodnick. If I find out the identity of Brendan/Brandon, I’ll add that info too.

Secret Deodorant Shows A Woman Proposing To A Man

Proposing has to be one of the most nerve-racking questions that people will ever ask. There are strong implications of when the reply is no, and that’s multiplied by the potential of embarrassment if it’s a highly public proposal (pro tip: don’t do a highly public proposal). But one thing that’s remained pretty much unchanged is that in heterosexual relationships, it’s almost always the man proposing to the woman. Sure, Monica proposed to Chandler on Friends (or started to), but only about 5 percent of those currently married say the woman proposed. So Secret brings the premise of staying cool under pressure to this situation. It’s pretty apparent what’s going on when Andy opens up the fortune cookie. Andy doesn’t seem like the brightest bulb. Look at Claire flipping the script on a centuries-old tradition! Does he say yes?
