Ask Lara - Oh no! B.O.!

Ask Lara - Oh no! B.O.!
Key Info
  • Ask Lara - Oh no! B.O.!
  • Duration: 11:53
  • After a sports session at school, Gabriel (13) goes to class without showering or changing his T-shirt. The girls notice that Gabriel smells. He’s embarrassed, but Tony (13) insists it must mean that he's becoming a man. Gabriel thinks he's beaten the smell by spraying on some air freshener but he soon realises the smell has returned. Everywhere he goes, a green B.O monster follows him, and it's making his life miserable. Tony and Gabriel seek advice from Max (16) – after all, the girl's fall at his feet – and with his guidance, Gabriel defeats the B.O monster once and for all. It's just a shame that Tony then becomes a different kind of smelly monster, by going over the top with deodorant and aftershave.
