Airborne wants to sweep you off your feet


Not to split long, flowing, gorgeous, full-bodied hairs, but why is Sebastian the Romance Novel Trope distributing Airborne cold remedy in this Bartle Bogle Hegarty spot?

Men in romance novels don't frolic in the wilderness—that's what their devil-may-care tomboy love interests do. The menfolk are supposed to spend their time either brooding or doing sit-ups in the darkness between swordfights. They certainly don't go around improving the immune systems of beleaguered men wearing baby harnesses.
