This commercial makes no SENSE at all.  It reminds me of that pic of Darth Vader on the shoreline, pouring himself a cup of Brita.  Exactly.. it doesn't make any sense.

See for yourselves:

The ad wasn't run during the Superbowl.  Weird, right?  Instead of putting millions of dollars into a single 30 second spot.. Old Spice created a number of ads to play before movies like "Valentine's Day" and Avatar.  They've also started a viral ad campaign online.

But by itself, the ad is a hit.  "Look at your man.  Now, back at me."  The character is smug and arrogant.  He tells you that you (or your man) smells like a lady.  And as soon as you start using Old Spice, you can have oysters with two tickets to whatever you like.. or diamonds.  Heck, you can even ride a horse.

Even backwards.

I can't wait for the next commercials.  This guy is gonna hit it big.. bigger than that Sprite dude.

What did you think of this review?

This old spice ad was shown at the #SXSWi #neuromarketing panel as it is a satirical view of marketing.
