Burberry Hero—man/horse duality

AdWeek named this as the weirdest fragrance ad of 2021. I'd have to agree.

From YouTube:

Burberry introduces Hero, Riccardo Tisci’s first scent for Burberry starring Adam Driver.
A new masculine spirit exploring the house codes of duality and the power of the animal kingdom.
A man in search of transformation and metamorphosis as a new modern heroism.

Something like one of the characters in "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum", who was tasked with gathering ingredients for a love potion, one of which was a copious amount of horse sweat.

Funniest part of that was when the slave driver thought the goblet was full of water and gulped it down. And dropped like a rock.

@KDP: the real thing was even weirder! Romans used to collect the sweat and grease from gladiators' skins after the match, to use in cosmetics. They had special scrapers for the job.
