What do you think of when I say.....

...Old Spice???

That commercial with the guy who keeps saying "now look at me..now look at him..now me.."  ??

I usually think of my Dad.

... when he wore aftershave, always wore Old Spice.



And now, Mr. B wears Old Spice.

Daughter Brandi always gets him his yearly supply of Old Spice for Christmas.

I've never had any reason to look at the labeling on the after shave, but today, while getting ready for work, I happened to find myself eye-level to the back side of the Old Spice deodorant tube-thingie..



Now, one would think that the demographic for any Old Spice product is..uh..old{er}, right?

Nope.  Not by the listing of what this mighty tube contains...


Yeah..double click on this and see exactly what this is made of...

Hmmm..wonder how the Atomic Robots and Scent Elves got by the FDA??

So, go look at your hubby's deodorant or after shave...you may just see this..

Exactly. On all counts. And may I say that it is a little disconcerting to have one's husband smell like one's father. Right.

ain't for city gals said...

hmmm. I don't think my dad ever wore after shave but here I am....I do like that new commercial though..makes me laugh.

Are you serious, do they think we are morons or what...but just for fun, go check what's in your toothpaste, then Google fluoride...and they're worried about lead paint chips and asbestos...whatever!!!

BTW...I love old spice...

Vicki aka Jake said...

I love the smell of Old Spice too! But ya know, if we read labels on most of what we use daily......Scary stuff out there. Good thing we're so dang tuff:)

Btw...it does say HIGH ENDURANCE:)

Holly said...

Yup, Old Spice in Dad's stocking every single year. I love it but I can't kiss my husband when he wears it, too creepy when he smells like my dad.

In high school, the big thing was Jade East. I thought it smelled good and a little like red licorice. I like the smell of scotch tape too. (So I'm a little strange.) I don't read ingredients because it scares me.

Amazing! My husband wears Old Spice and ONLY Old Spice! I am going to check out his tubes and bottles!

Laurie said...

Hmmmmmm...Mom and Dad said they never knew where us 5 kids came from til the last one was born. Now I know, and boy did I have the facts of life screwed up!

Emmy said...

My dad wears Old Spice. When I smell it, I always think of him. It's a comforting, familiar scent :)

lifeinredshoes said...

My Grandpa, that's who I think of. What a happy memory, thank you for bringing it back :)

My boyfriend wears old spice deodorant--i used to too (we bought the jumbo packs at costco, it was cheaper than buying separate deodorant scents. and yes, i realize that's weird for a girl to smell like old spice), but it made my armpits itch like CRAZY. i went to read the ingredients (BTW, all sorts of terrible things in about every deodorant) and saw those funny ingredients! lol pretty clever!

Pat MacKenzie said...

Very clever marketing. I'd like to see the stench monsters. I don't think I've known anyone who wore Old Spice. Jade East and Hai Karate for sure back in the day, but not Old Spice.

THAT IS HILARIOUS!!!!!!
I don't know if that's what is in the hubs pits or not. But I'm off to go buy some.

THANKS FOR THE BEST LAUGH EVER!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That is hysterical! Thanks for pointing that out, I can't wait to show my husband when we are out shopping.

Sharon said...

Oh that is so funny. I am off to check it out. I love that scent. I wonder if it would keep 1000 plus lb. Elk away. Just kidding!

Dapoppins said...

Im going to buy some for my 13 year old. The boy is stinky. Not in a good way. He will read the directions. He reads everything. And maybe it will inspire him to use it everyday. The problem? I'm not sure I want my 13 year old smelling like MY Dad....

susan said...

My dad too although when he wore it I'm almost certain it was made from far more mundane ingredients :-)

diane b said...

hee hee what rubbish will they think up next to sell a product.
Bill is allergic to it.

Ha-ha! That's so funny! I remember when Old Spice was THE gift to give for Christmas. Obviously the company is trying the humorous approach to boost sales. My 12 year old could use a bunch of those atomic robots to get rid of his stench. :/ Have a great day. Tammy

Who knew Old Spice would join the space age?? LOL LOL

Garden of Egan said...

Just so you know...........I had to run down to Walgreens after reading this post to read all the backs of the different flavors of Old Spice. I was cracking up!!!

Then I bought some for birthday and Christmas gifts. This is too good NOT to share!

One of them said "it's a good thing your grandpa used Old Spice, or you wouldn't be here"
