Remind me to keep myself and everyone I love far, far away from Old Spice body spray
Quietly and relentlessly and increasingly perverse and creepy. A real achievement in the sewer that forms most of today's "advertisements."

That last bottle of Old Spice is going right into the sh.t can! I mean what the f..k? Made me want to puke
Sorry, I've been using Old Spice for fifty years. To me its what shaving lotion smells like.
But honestly, I think it was Dennis Miller who said it definitely years ago,"The last guy to get laid while using Old Spice was John Wayne."
Holy crap! The Dork Commercial has metastasized into the Creep Commercial.
I am glad I no longer watch TV.
Well they got the attention they desired, but be careful what you wish for. As for me, I have used the Old Spice stick deodorant for about 40 years now and my dad before me so I guess there will be no change now, but still that commercial......?
I guess they were trying to "take the next step" after that popular campaign with the black guy ("look at me. I'm on a horse.") in evolving scenarios.
Yeah. One step over the cliff.
THEN AGAIN: maybe it DOES resonate with male tweens who, it seems, are their target market.
What kind of fresh hell will be released with the Mannkinder decide to mix Axe with Olde Spice?
I dunno. Posted this on my FB page yesterday after seeing it during the game, and got largely the same "yuck!" reaction. Personally, I thought it was a really funny poke at mothers' ambivalence about their adolescing sons--
Like tripletap, my dad used Old Spice, and other than a few years early on when I was on a Brut and or English Leather fling, I have been a non-stop Old Spice user too. My wife gets me a bottle of after shave every Christmas. I noticed a decline in the product over the last 10 years or so, the bottles became smaller (inflation) and then the ships got much smaller. I see in the stores they now have assorted *flavors* of the stuff trying to attract the beta's I suppose. I'll stick to the classics thank you just the same.
The commercial? It was made for people that watch TEEVEE.
Creed Vetiver works a trick with the birds.
You got that right about Creed, Kinch.
For years I made *unscented aftershave lotion for my husband, then finally Nivea started marketing an unscented formula. He can't stand all that scented stuff.
*pure grain alcohol, witch hazel, distilled water, and glycerine.
All my nightmares about Mom invading every free space in my life.
Finally repressed after 30 years.
Now, back to the couch!
"I could never get rid of her, Doc. She was always there with those moist eyes and that threadbare Kleenex, asking me to come home early because 'You know your mother worries about you when you're not home.'"
So, I doused her in Old Spice and tossed her a lit Zippo.
Had to put a mental condom on after watching that commercial. I have used Old Spice for 40 plus years and i like a couple of the new ones. And i will keep using it until i see pajama boy doing a commercial for them and them i guess i will have to resort to some of the dumpster juice that some of the young ones call deodorant.
I can't believe they replaced the Old Spice Guy for this crap
