So Old Spice has released another video. I am sure you know the lyrics of the previous videos but they go something like “old spice made a man out of my boy” or something along those words. In those videos the mom is always pathetically crying over her son in disbelief that he is growing up. In the new video the dads are sticking up for their sons, in a way as the mom argues that he is just a boy.
New integrated campaign depicts how moms and dads react differently to sons’ entry to manhood, featuring lyrics from Flight of the Conchords’ songwriter Bret McKenzie.
I think the message to take away is – that a boy’s way through puberty, and gaining the “man-badge” is to first get through, well mom. Boys must endure mom losing her cool a little bit while she comes to the realization that the last 16-17 years have led up to this point. It is time to let go. As a parent and as a mom, I can attest to that. It is a sad time indeed. The beginning of letting our little boys grow up and become men. To leave our home, and go out on their own. Venture through college, get a job, and hopefully a wife some day. This is a time I am not looking forward to. My little boy is, well, my “little” boy and I do not want him to grow up but I also know it is part of life and it will happen. And of course my little boy’s father is all for him growing up. My son shows his manhood through the scent of Old Spice by dowsing himself in it before school each day. I am thankful that the brand kept this in mind when creating the product, so that even though my son does over do it on the scent it is not so strong that i cannot breathe 😉
Old Spice gives the gift of manhood this holiday season with Re-fresh Body Spray, helping guys “Scent Responsibly” with the brand’s innovative, first-in-category Re-fresh Technology. Giving the gift of manhood couldn’t be easier with Old Spice. Old Spice has a variety of smelling products for every guy on your gift list Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray, featuring the brand’s innovative and first-in-category Re-fresh Technology, which eliminates the need for guys to overspray or reapply throughout the day. With Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray, “One Spray Lasts All Day.”
Culturally speaking there has always been a clash between women and men within the United States. Gifting Old Spice is a holiday tradition passed on from grandfathers to dads to sons – helping smellcome new generations of boys to manhood across the world each year. The parental reaction to this masculine rite of passage however often results in a clash of differing opinions between mothers and fathers, as humorously illustrated in the newly released Old Spice video above. At the center of the mom-dad debate is Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray, the gift that keeps on giving one spray at a time with its patented sweat-activated Re-fresh Technology, ensuring “One Spray Lasts All Day” and bringing an end to the juvenile overspraying epidemic in this country. And boys do over spray. Just ask my 12 year old son who goes through spray like candy.
While it is natural for moms and dads to have different opinions about their son growing up, it is every parents goal to raise their son into adulthood. It is also a parents goal to raise their son to be good citizens. So the videos depicts some crazy, cheesy scenarios but I think it gets parents talking. Old Spice videos are definitely a conversation starter if not a big ol’ laugh.
