Ah. I always knew Hai Karate was kind of a joke, but now I understand why: It was the Axe body spray of my father’s generation.
I think we still have a bottle of it somewhere
it was also a send-up of spy tv shows and movies. it smelled pretty unpleasant though. i think it was one of the first male colognes to be heavily advertised, other than the old staples like Old Spice and AquaVelva.
If my grandfather liked something, he bought it by the case, if not by the truckload of cases.
Hai Karate was one of those things. And not just the cologne, but the deodorant, the soap, and anything else Hai Karate.
Fuck. Now I’m gonna be all melancholy and crap all day. I miss my grandparents…
