Wildflowers and Shame

"A stick of something that smells like wildflowers and shame." It's from the new Old Spice "manliness" campaign. I am SO not the target audience. My father used to wear it and it just gives me hives when I encounter a cloud of it.

But that is my favorite line from television advertising right now. Major props to whomever wrote it - I award you a Magno Show Award (like the One Show, but much bitchier) right now. Come claim it. Ads of late don't make me guffaw, but this resulted in a mini spit take. Just water - no damage, and lovely husband did not witness it.

Thanks for the laugh Old Spice, and your ad agency too.

Thanks to American Copywriter for the link to the commercial!
