Commercial Break: The Spice that will get you the girls
Old Spice aftershave; do they still make it? Apparently they do, although it seems like one of the ultimate throwbacks to the 1970s. With its use of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana (better known as ‘the Old Spice music’) and the macho imagery, it’s almost a joke product in the 21st century.
Which is just as well, because Old Spice don’t seem to take themselves seriously these days when it comes to advertising their jars of liquid honk. Here’s their latest effort, where a real man does a whole host of manly things, backed up by the fact that he’s drenched in Old Spice guy juice.
It follows a string of tongue-in-cheek celeb ads starring LL Cool J, Doogie Howser MD and Brian Urlacher (no, us neither). To celebrate, we’re going to open a bottle of Old Spice and splash it all over… oh, JESUS, NO!
