Old Spice “Smellcome to Manhood” Ad Creeping Many Out [VIDEO]
I was watching CNN this morning while I was preparing for the radio show and noticed they were discussing a controversial new television commercial. Controversy in the media is always intriguing to me, so I decided to find the commercial they were talking about. The commercial was for Old Spice, and I realized that I had also seen this video shared in my Facebook news feed a few times this weekend, though I never clicked on it, and couldn’t understand how a deodorant commercial could be so polarizing. Also, when the hosts were talking about it being controversial, it’s not like Old Spice is being boycotted or protested or anything like that… It just seems to creep people out.
While I think the commercial is odd, I don’t think I would have even noticed its creepiness without it being brought to my attention. What do you think? Does this television commercial make you uncomfortable?
