Josh Holloway, without his shirt, in a cologne ad campaign

I think this is one of the best pictures of Josh Holloway without his shirt that I’ve seen — and that’s saying a lot. It’s from a print ad:

This is a screenshot from a TV ad for the same cologne:

Editing to add: I just found a copy of the commercial on YouTube, so I’m adding it in here:

And these are some screenshots from a video about the making of the ads. The first one does stray from the without-his-shirt theme of this post, but he looked so good there, I had to include it:

A blog devoted to men’s grooming products has posted what appear to be publicity stills from the making of the commercial. I especially like the one of Josh in jeans and no shirt, lying on his back, surrounded by the camera crew:

Several print ads, the TV ad video, and the “Making of” video are all available on the Cool Waters site.

Fanatic Sawyer fans (you know who you are) can also download wallpaper-sized high-resolution copies of the first image, as well as screensavers for the PC or Mac, on the Cool Waters “Goodies” page.

The “Josh Holloway lying down” picture is from The Grooming Guru, where you can find a much larger and higher-resolution copy, along with other high-resolution pictures from the commercial shoot. Editing 7/19/09 to add: Here’s one more!

  1. Very nice. Very nice indeedy. 😀

  2. Thought you might like it. :)

  3. Hmmm… I think my favorite picture is the second one. I don’t like how his hair is slicked back in the first one.

  4. True, the hair is not the best there. But arms & pecs are pretty impressive. :-) BTW, if you have a chance to watch the “Making of” video (on the Perfume company’s site), I think you’d enjoy it.

    I looked for an embeddable copy and couldn’t find one, but while I was looking, I stumbled across some video of Evangeline Lilly in a commercial for the same company — so that may be the subject of a future post.

    If I get to it. There’s been a surprising amount of stuff to write about during this off-season. So any Evi Lilly fans reading this — take a look on YouTube for her Cool Water ads.
