I’ve been watching a lot of Olympics, which means I’ve been seeing a lot of commercials. My favorite by far is this Old Spice commercial called “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like”:

Old Spice is not just harnessing gender stereotypes, it’s mocking them in a delightful way. Check out the Old Spice website for more commercials… and a lot more of the Man Your Man Could Smell Like.

* FTW means “for the win.”

  1. You know me and TV, but I LOVE this ad. I've probably watched it ten times, five of those with John, laughing hysterically because he uses "lady scented" body wash.

    It was so SO refreshing to see this delightful ad after all of the hateful, uninspired, and repulsive Superbowl ads aimed at manhood: manhood as defined by brittle insecurity, a desire to remain in infancy, and misogyny.

    Do go to the web site; there's one other ad with him, and there's a hilarious intro by him at the home page. I had to keep pausing it because I was howling.
