YMMV / The Man Your Man Could Smell Like

  • Archive Binge: These videos are quite addictive, especially considering there are hundreds of them.
  • Awesome Ego:
    • Old Spice Guy is better than your man in every way, but don't worry, your man can be awesome as the Old Spice Man if he too used Old Spice and didn't smell like a lady.
    • Terry Crews, who's also well-loved because he tries to steal Isaiah's spotlight.
  • Even Better Sequel: Why smell like the man your man could smell like WHEN YOU CAN SMELL LIKE POWEEEEER!? (Terry Crews - Crazy Old Spice Commercials).
  • Fountain of Memes: If Mustafa's said it at some point in this campaign, expect the Internet to repeat some variation of it thousandfold at least.
    • "Look at [X]. Now back to me. Back to [X]. Now back to me. Sadly, [X] isn't me."
    • "The tickets are now diamonds!"
    • "Swan dive!"
    • "I'm on a horse."
    • "Monocle smile!"note 
    • "Night vision top hat!"
    • While it existed before, the Old Spice whistle jingle has been firmly ensconced in the public mind thanks to these commercials.
    • POWEEEEEEERRRR!!!! Let's face it, Terry Crews is also on the way to become this due to the ads starring him and the line most prominently.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Nogert, a YouTuber, wanted the commercials to win an award. Well guess what?
    • Also Hilarious in Foresight. The last line of the commercial is "Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady". However, Old Spice was originally called "Early American Old Spice for Women".
      • This is actually addressed in one of their reply videos. Said video said that they shifted Old Spice's target audience to men once the women who used Old Spice started gaining... masculine traits.
  • Memetic Badass: The Old Spice Guy, and by extension any man who uses Old Spice, can perform outrageous feats like become a one man band by flexing their muscles.
