The Man Your Man Could Smell Like - Page 2

post #21 of 36
I love that commercial too but old spice always smells like my grandfather so it's not exactly what I want my man to smell like.

Yup, my dad used to wear Old Spice. Hilarious commercial, regardless.

Excellent!

I've been cracking up over this commercial for weeks now. DH thinks it's hilarious too, but said it'll probably get old eventually. I'm not sure it will. I think it may be forever one of my favorite commercials!

There's a facebook page for it, too, of course

That's hilarious! I'm so glad someone posted this since I don't have cable and therefore don't keep up with commercials. Seriously, the world was a much less funny place before youtube

This is by far one of the funniest things EVER.

I knew which commercial you were talking about by the title of the thread. I guess I'm the only one who thinks it's disgusting. I have a sense of humor, I promise! Just not about this. Maybe I should be happy they are being blatant about it instead of merely suggesting those things like most commercials do, but it just irritates me and makes me sad.

Oh good, a differing opinion! I absolutely believe you have a sense of humor. What specifically do you object to?

That I should be dissatisfied with the way "my man" looks (or smells?). That I would think that man is better looking, which is the basis for his whole "argument". Or, y'know, how that might make someone's partner or husband feel watching that commercial while sitting next to his partner/wife. "My man" may not look like someone who could be in one of those commercials, but I love the way he looks just as he is.

And then I think about how obvious they're making it, which suggests that they're making fun of that sort of thing (commercials use "sexy people" to sell their crap all the time-- so it's almost like they're just being more honest about it).

This commercial is stinking HILARIOUS!!! Frankly, I do NOT wish my dh looked like him, but that makes it all the more amusing to me.

I completely get what you're saying. I saw it as satire. The way they throw "sexy people" in your face for everything from Cheerios to hemorrhoid cream. I saw this as poking fun at that and so I found it hilarious.

Ellen had this guy on her show recently. Very funny!

Here he is!

DH actually showed me this commercial. He loves it more than me! Lol. I think it's hilarious, and no, this man isn't my husband, but we all know that we'd rather be with OUR spouses on a boat or a horse than with this guy, funny as he is.

I love it when the tickets turn to diamonds .

This is DH's and my favorite commercial. Every time we see it, we laugh and laugh. Just thinking about it makes me smile.

I think this is one of the funniest commercials I have seen. Yet I do find it troubling with the in your face humor, that I find kind of sexist. There has been some feminist discussion (bitch magazine or bust maybe?) about whether it is demeaning to women, humorous or not. Also I watched a great interview with the 2 Wieden & Kennedy ad writers, telling how they filmed the whole thing in real time, with sets, not computers, like a single camera take.
