Bonkers but strangely compellling ad alert!
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Media features here.
As you probably know by now, Mr Muddy is quite the ad guy (he’s partner at natty London agency Antidote if you’re one for details), so I always have the inside line on new adverts coming out.
This one, from America, is for Old Spice, and is literally hot off the presses. As the mother of a son who has just started to wear deodorant (at eleven years old! I mean, what’s happening to our kids?!) I find it particularly amusing.
It’s a very quirky ad – you’ll need to watch it a couple of times – but I love the idea of all these bonkers mothers desperately trying to keep their sons tied to their apron strings when in fact they’re now Old Spice spraying, women-chasing love machines.
