You might have already seen it, this spot has been airing in Sweden for the past two weeks and is planned to air worldwide. Maybe you sense a deja vu if you recall this 2005 commercial where a nude Gisela grows an entire body tattoo.

It's a well known hairy truth that all great images have probably been done before, but don't tear your hair out over it - we can still do original things. Still, sometimes it's fun to split hairs and go digging down to see if one can't find the root of an iconic image. See hairy stuff inside.
Above : Pantene press ads from recent winter years (2005-07), also in the campaign was a TV-commercial where the woman can wear her hair as a scarf after using Pantene.
