I don't know why it didn't occur to me until now, but those Old Spice commercials really are kind of like American adaptations of Japanese commercials. All of those Japanese commercials that we have snickered at for complete randomness has just been channeled, fabulously, into shilling out male grooming products. I mean, a ten years ago if you heard someone say "Why did that bar of deodorant come out of that watermelon?" you probably would have assumed Japanese commercial, but not anymore, and it's utterly fantastic.
