Use with caution! Hai Karate might sound familiar to some, but not everyone might recall the legendary aftershave. In case you need a refresher, Hai Karate is known for being a budget aftershave that means business. Originally developed by the Leeming division of Pfizer, the aftershave was released in 1967. Other versions of the fragrance, like Oriental Lime and Oriental Spice were brought in soon after. The brand stopped production in the late eighties, but later resurfaced in recent years. Every bottle was sold with a self-defense manual, complete with instructions on how to fend off hordes of women. In the UK advertisements, a nerdy man would cover himself in Hai Karate and then instantly become the center of attention. Popular British star Valerie Leon star in the ads as well, running to the man and instantly trying to seduce him. The brand has seen significant popularity since it was rereleased in 2014. Hai Karate has been referenced repeatedly in pop culture, appearing in everything from The Incredibles, a Dean Koontz novel, and even a Cheers episode.
