Dude, I would so wear Duck-Duck-Goose bodyspray.

You know these come in different scents or flavors or whatever, right?

The special bodyspray chemically formulated for use at lower temperatures? Freeze Tag.

The bodyspray you wear if you're gonne be on the couch watching the tube all night? TV Tag.

The super-high tech bodyspray that focuses your scent on one subject? Laser Tag.

Of course, all of these bodysprays are cheap knockoffs of that cologne so popular with Italian guys in my high school in the 80s: Marco Polo.

You know, I wouldn't hate these ads so much if not for the fact that people actually buy these products, douse themselves in them, and then ride the subway.

We play an improv game like this. You get a product type from the audience and when the ref points to someone, they have to come up with an original name of that type. You guys would be good at it!

The body spray to wear when you are creating a web site? HTML Tag. ;-)

Of course, for people who you'd rather not be in the same room with, there's Phone Tag Bodyspray.
