Styling Gel for Douchebags: got2b magnetik

I'm not one who uses the term douchebag too often, but I couldn't resist when I found my housemate/roommate* with a tube of got2b's "magnetik" gel! He apparently didn't read the label, which is certainly marketed at douchebags (like these guys), and purchased two for the price of one. [Note: He didn't read the label and bought it because got2b products are actually quality hair products --- but of course I still felt compelled to give him a hard time about it]

The front label reads:

magnetik (with a lightning bolt to dot the "i")
styling GEL
[with pheromones]

4: guys who wants hold, polish, game

Oh wait, it gets worse!!!

The back label reads:

got2b magnetik styling gel contains pheromones - a man's secret edge to make the ladies take notice. So get your game on...because this stuff delivers firm hold and natural shine - AND gets the ladies revved up.

Work it: Apply a generous amount evenly through damp or dry hair. Use cautiously at first until you know your true magnetik effect.

Typing the label just makes me a bit queasy and embarrassed for any guy who reads this and thinks to himself, "yeah, this stuff will definitely get me some action with the ladies!"

* Completely off topic, but if you are sharing an apartment with someone and have separate bedrooms, do you refer to them as your housemate or roommate?

I certainly know YOU don't need it! Perhaps one of your mates??
