Old Spice, New Love*

Confession: I love commercials.

Really, I do. I generally find them hilarious and sometimes more entertaining than whatever it is I’m watching. Now I should probably tell you that the last time I actually had cable TV was when I was 17, so I haven’t had to deal with them on a regular basis like most people.

And so, much to the Hubster’s chagrin, I love commercials. (and movie previews, for that matter. He’d be happy never to see either one.)

Now then. Every once in a while I see one that is just pure gold–one that makes me laugh until I cry in less than 30 seconds. It just has that little bit of ridiculous magic that makes it epic… the kind of commercial you’ll remember long after it’s over.

The Hubster and I went to see Robin Hood on Tuesday. I loved the movie, but a commercial they played before it even began was easily the funniest bit of the whole evening.

We all know what Old Spice is. If you don’t, just go smell your dad. I’m sure he’s wearing it. It’s the Dad scent.

Or, at least it was. It appears that they are trying to revamp their image somewhat and appeal to a younger audience. Ladies, it certainly captured mine. This is the man your man could smell like.

Watch, and LOVE.

The Hubster is getting Old Spice for Christmas.

And maybe a horse.
