Is this a hair removal product, like nair, or just a shaving cream?

Nice.
Another thing: while it's mainly the poster's fault for not giving info about the product, but if people bother to comment, why don't they bother to look it up? People: there's a great invention called GOOGLE!!!!!

I'm here doing this, but feel I should be there doing that. But to do that, I have to be doing this. Does this make sense or do I have to explain that?

Yeah I agree with Dzsoi. The problem with this ad is that it tells what mosquitoes do, not what Vape does

This ad is lame. First of all, it is misleading. Why illustrate the skin's hair strands as straws? It doesn't give us any clear idea of the product's nature. Is is supposed to be sprayed on skin? Then a "shield" imagery would seem fit for this.
It is sprayed on air like other insect repellent? To me it looks like Vape is something you drink to make your body fluids become poisonous to bugs, thus showing straws and a scary illustration of the epidermis. Moreover, it makes bloodsuckers feast on you first before killing them. The creatives are so drunk with the their "straw" idea, bypassing that it doesn't make sense.
