Quietly and relentlessly and increasingly perverse and creepy. A real achievement in the sewer that forms most of today's "advertisements."
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.
Excellent point! lol
i will have to show that to my 21 yr old son.
I’m pretty sure it will gross him out.
All the guys out there that see a big advantage in being a perfumed prince, clap your hands.
Ehh... it is what it is...
Howzzat for a profound comment?
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.
I was more of a Hai-Karate guy
Lol, what a tasteless commercial. They’ve replaced the old spice sailor with nerdy boys living at home with their mothers.
Okay...the Old Spice commercials with the former Seahawk...funny. This stuff...NOT funny, not by a long shot, and creepy as all getout.
Just plain ole dumb.Plus the mother is one ugly woman
Boycott Old Spice because of this ad? Geesh. Lighten up, Francis.
"Boatswain," "bo's'n," "bos'n," or "bosun" - but not "boson" (the fundamental particle in Physics).
“Take it off....Take it all off....”
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.....:)
And yes...Old Spice should have researched that word before using it in an ad campaign. Unless they knew then...ewww.
Weird. Kind of funny. Not run-of-the-mill.
Mom is always watching and sees all and knows all. The NSA just wishes they could spy like that.
That ad creeps me out as much as the Burger King does. Maybe a little more...
All the guys out there that see a big advantage in being a perfumed prince,....I always wanted to be a general, like Wesley Clark.
The ultimate helicopter parent.
I think it’s funny. Let’s not act like the OLD grumpy parents this ad parodies.
That is about as creepy as the Joe Boxer jingle balls Ad, but in a different way.
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!
Gun oil for aftershave... burn gunpowder for incense
dang...that’s what FReep spell check gave me. Now I know the correct spelling. Thanks
