Remind me to keep myself and everyone I love far, far away from Old Spice body spray

See the video - http://youtu.be/8M-sAPobpfY

Quietly and relentlessly and increasingly perverse and creepy. A real achievement in the sewer that forms most of today's "advertisements."

KEYWORDS: advertising; oldspice
Maybe the Obamacare advertising team is branching out?

of the obama team had had anything to do with it, they’d had convinced Old Spice to name the product.... BOYHOOD!

If Team Obama had done this, they would not have featured girls chasing after the smelly mama’s boy.

Not necessarily disagreeing with you, but, a couple of parts did make me laugh. Forgive me.

i will have to show that to my 21 yr old son.

I’m pretty sure it will gross him out.

But if you don't use Old Spice to get a girlfriend, you'll stay home with mom and become this "man".

I thought it was funny, although some of the lyrics crossed the line, and I am the uptight, old-fashioned mother of two young men (and two daughters.)

As a means to sell a product it doesn’t work. Who wants to smell like a joke? What young man, or his girl friend, wants to be reminded of a boundary-crossing mother who won’t let go? What mother or father would buy it for a son?

I can see guys ribbing each other, a gag gift, but that’s not much of a market.

While I rarely see commercials, as I fast forward past them, I did happen to see this ad and my thought was: Wow that was a really bizarre ad.

Sheesh, the only deodorant that never irritated my skin. I’ll have to do some investigating for something new.

Lol, what a tasteless commercial. They’ve replaced the old spice sailor with nerdy boys living at home with their mothers.

Speaking of the Obama team and crappy commercial messages: It appears to me that Warren Buffet's Geico is taking a slap at the Tea Party with this one.

Avoiding Old Spice? Try Burma Shave. It's richer than a maharajah!

I sure do miss the captain and the boson.

"Boatswain," "bo's'n," "bos'n," or "bosun" - but not "boson" (the fundamental particle in Physics).

I liked it, yeah it was a bit bizarre, but I thought it was clever and catchy.

I used to use old spice deodorant until I saw a friend of mine just use plain rubbing alcohol for deodorant. It works just fine, kills the body odor but does not replace it with perfume. And it is dirt cheap compared to old spice. I have been using rubbing alcohol for years without any complaints from others.....:)

Hey! Ya gotta believe in your smelf!

That ad creeps me out as much as the Burger King does. Maybe a little more...

I smell like that.

It gets under my guitar callouses and around my cuticles and no amount of washing or handcream can get rid of it.

But, now I know it might attract the RIGHT kinda guy so I’ll leave it on!
