New Old Spice ad is both hilarious and terrifying

Old Spice has done it again. A new ad called “Mom Song”  already has more than a million views on YouTube and even more reactions across the web.

It shows the private, hilarious and creepy struggle of moms losing their sons to dates and blaming Old Spice for all of it.

“Old Spice! Old Spice made a man of my son.”

 Yeah…  Many are calling the ad brilliant, but even a USA Today reporter who liked the ad, acknowledged the awkward parts: ​“All moms face that time when their teenagers are growing up and dating, and it is tough. But most aren’t willing to be as creepy as this mom, disguised as a scary-looking janitor.”

Guyism even made a GIF of that moment, saying it will “keep you up for weeks.”

A writer for The Irish Times is also disturbed by the mother madness. “This is just too creepy. We all love our mothers, but this is too much.”

While the mothers might be acting over the top – popping up out of the sand, hiding in the couch – a writer for Fast Company says the sons’ actions, “seem pretty wholesome compared to what, say, Axe might dream up.”

Either way, it has moms and the rest of the Internet watching. The ad debuted online Friday and on TV during this weekend’s NFL playoff games -- not the Super Bowl, where you might expect. And that’s actually a little surprising, according to Hollywood Life.

Still, viral marketing is something Old Spice does well. We know you remember The Man Your Man Could Smell Like:  “Look down, back up. Where are you? You’re on a boat.”

And, there’s the campaign with Terry Crews, who reportedly loved the “Mom Song” spot. He told Today Show’s Al Roker, “There’s nothing quite like your mom clutching your rear bumper when you’re trying to leave. That’s love.”

  • Two prison inmates take their confinement out on some fellow inmates. A South Carolina inmate says he and another convicted murderer strangled four fellow prisoners in a bid to get the death penalty.   Denver Simmons told The Associated Press in a series of telephone calls that he and Jacob Philip plotted the April 7 killings at Kirkland Correctional Institution for months. Both men were sentenced to life without parole for double murderers.   Simmons told the AP they chose inmates who were weak or trusted them, and lured them one by one into Simmons' cell. The victims were John King, William Scruggs, Jimmy Ham, and Jason Kelley.   Simmons said he now realizes he's unlikely to get the death penalty.
  • A woman is robbed at gunpoint while walking her dog at LaFortune Park around 11:30 p.m. Monday. Tulsa police tell us three men approached the victim, taking her cell phone before running away into the park near 51st and South Yale. Officers got into a foot chase with the suspects, following them to a nearby apartment complex. Tulsa Police Sergeant David Brice said, “However we were able to recover the victim’s cell phone where the officer last saw that suspect run into the apartment complex.” None of the suspects have been arrested.
  • A shooting victim dies in the hospital after being gunned down on a grocery store parking lot. Tulsa police tell us a 26- to 27-year male was shot around 10:30 Monday night at the Turley Food Express at 504 East 56 Street North.  “Officers were able to locate witnesses that stated a black male arrived in the parking lot, exited a vehicle (and) fired multiple shots at the victim while in the parking lot,” said Tulsa Police Sergeant August Terbrock.   We're told witnesses had no description of the vehicle or the suspect. Crime scene detectives have taken over the investigation. The victim’s name has not been released.
  • No charges will be filed in a police shooting last week. Investigators have found no criminal wrongdoing in the police killing of a mentally ill, knife-wielding black man by officers.   Tulsa police homicide Sgt. Dave Walker tells the Tulsa World about the findings Monday from the internal investigation of the June 9 shooting of Jason Barre. Tulsa County District Attorney's Office will review the findings next and decide if it concurs.   Barre already was known to police as having a mental illness. When he walked down a street wielding two butcher knives on June 9, two sheriff's deputies and a police officer gave him room until he approached a convenience store. After a stun gun failed to stop Barre, the deputies and officer shot him.
  • Two dogs mauled a woman over the weekend.   Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin said Monday that 65-year-old Melissa Barnes was doing yard work Saturday at a residence west of Bozeman when she was attacked, first by a pit bull, followed by another dog. The breed of the second dog hasn't been confirmed.   Barnes, who is an organ donor, was being kept on life support at a Billings hospital pending rabies tests on the dogs, which belonged to tenants on Barnes' property. The dogs were not current on their vaccinations. Their owners voluntarily euthanized them.   Gootkin says the case is still under investigation, and no charges have yet been filed.
