Spot the hidden message!

The message of any given deodorant ad is "This product will get you laid." See if you can spot the subtle ways in which Old Spice has chosen to deliver this information:



Woman: "I waited too long to try an Old Spice man."

(Sexually.)

Woman: "The Old Spice man performs great."

(Sexually.)

Woman: "Plus he's really long-lasting."

(Sexually.)

What's with the horse in this ad? The guy appears to be checking it out while the woman is talking. And then there's that uncomfortable neighing at the end. Was Mr. Hands an Old Spice man, too?

I guess this is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek? The Bruce Campbell series of Old Spice commercials also confuses and annoys me. They're pretty much "Look, Bruce Campbell, LOLZ!" Like this commercial, where the message appears to be, "Deodorant! Horse, sex, foreign lady! Awesome!"

You're not saying anything, Old Spice. You're going for a cheap laugh or some lame sex appeal and just hoping people associate "cool" with your brand.
