Dear Marketing Director for Old Spice Body Wash,



In regards to your new commercial:

Let me start by saying I don't appreciate your humor.

I'm pretty sure your thought behind the ad was that:

"If they use your product, they will be hung like a horse."

However, if my man exits the shower half man/half horse after using your body wash...

I'm really not sure what I'd do with him.

He's certainly not getting in bed with me. Not with those hooves!

You've been around for a long time "Old Spice."

You can do better.

Besides, even if the men buy your silly ad...It's us women who buy the products.

I'm just saying.

Life, Love & Lola

Something about Old Spice just reminds me of my dad. I don't think I could ever find it attractive - never in a million years.

The commercial is just dumb. I didn't really get it. Have you seen it?

Shannie said...

Oh my! I haven't seen this!!!!! LMAO! Yeah, Old Spice reminds me of my great grandfather... He always had it on a shelf in his bathroom. I don't even want to think about him in relation to that commercial. Ewwwwww.

OMG!!!! LL&L - I don't laugh out loud a whole lot but your comment about coming over for a pep talk was outstanding. I didn't know what you meant for a split second and then it hit me so beautifully!!!!!!!!!

Actually, since you asked, the Centaur ad for Old Spice's Double Impact Body Wash is a metaphor for the product. That being a body wash that both moisturizes and cleans. To spell it out for you- the centaur is two things: a man and a horse, and Double Impact body wash is two things- moisturizer and cleanser. It has nothing to do with his, er, private parts.

Holy Crap... who is the anony poster... hopefully someone you know... or someone who does the marketing for Old Spice?

I am still cracking up at this... I still have not seen the ad... but holy cow you hit a nerve!

OH AND... I laughed so hard at your comment about the wine being in the background on the Diva's video... I had to watch it again to find it! LOL!!
Have a super weekend!

WTF??? Seriously.

Centaur, I'm sorry... Obviously we don't "get" Centaur humor... It's not funny at all, and that's just a dumbass metaphor. Seriously. I really think that the interpretation given to us by LLL, was probably more accurate, and certainly funnier and much cleverer.

The only centaur I want to know about is the one from Harry Potter who fills in as the "defense against the dark arts" professor. If some anonymous has to go into detail to explain it then it's not a good metaphor.
