Old Spice is known for its weird and wonderful commercials. But this one is on another plane of strange. It is called the Horrifying Mutant Nightmare Abomination (remix). You barely realize that it is in fact a commercial for Old Spice and not just a random assemblage of bears and fish burping to a tune. But it's much more than that. There is a hot dog rocket car, a hot model being squirted with ketchup, and some rapping birds. It's taking an approach to advertising that would have made Don Draper's heart explode in his chest. I was told a long time ago that I'd never make it as an ad man because all my ideas for commercials were too weird. Well, I guess maybe I should try and get a job with Old Spice.
This is not an endorsement of the product. For all I know this scent smells like raccoon testes. But I do like the ad.
