    Question What does "The shampoo giant" mean?

    The context may be seen with the following conversation between two men in a British Tv series.
    -I had a casting. I'm an actor. This is what I do when I'm not working.
    - What was the casting for?
    - Head and shoulders.The shampoo giant?
    I guess it's a kind of a giant bottle of shampoo,but I'm not sure about it.Any help will be much appreciated.
