This is the second entry from "the man you wish you smelled like", and he does not to disappoint in his sophomoric effort.

Go ahead and try to truthfully say he doesn’t make you want to buy this body wash, just so your girlfriend stops fantasizing about him.

The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

Ranker Video
Video: YouTube

This classic commercial, which has raised awareness of Old Spice as a company the same way the Taco Bell dog did for Taco Bell, stars "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like", otherwise known as actor Isaiah Mustafa.

It goes beyond simply selling a product to get inside your head and make you question your own masculinity.

The best part? Old Spice, as a company, figured out the age-old marketing question of

"How do you sell a product for men in a way that women love it too, while not also alienating the men?"

Absolutely brilliant.

Classic Vintage Ad

This classic vintage Old Spice commercial features a guy splashing after shave on his eyes for some reason, some topless mermaids and proof that Old Spice has REALLY stuck to their guns with that jingle of theirs (which by the end of this list will be forever locked into your brain.)

50s ads are awesome. Period. But what's more awesome is that back in the 50s, people's faces turned into water. And that water looked terrifying.

A stone cold rule of life is that Bruce Campbell will make everything exponentially more awesome, as demonstrated here. Make sure to pay attention to the painting in the background, btw.
