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
  • Even Better Sequel: Why smell like the man your man could smell like WHEN YOU CAN SMELL LIKE POWEEEEER!?
  • 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.
    • "The tickets are now diamonds!"
    • "Swan dive!"
    • "I'm on a horse."
    • "Monocle smile!"
    • "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.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Nogert, a youtuber, wanted the commercials to win an award. Well guess what?
    • Also Inverted. 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".
  • Memetic Badass
  • Memetic Mutation: Look at [X]. Now back to me. Back to [X]. Now back to me. Sadly, [X] isn't me, but it could smell like me.
    • The [X] is/are now diamonds!
  • Memetic Sex God: The Old Spice Guy, and by extension any man who uses Old Spice.
