Old Spice Commercial

You know how I like to collect funny commercials?

So Skywalker and I went to see a movie the other day and this commercial played during the time everyone was waiting for the movie to start. After it finished, there was absolute silence for a second, and then everyone started laughing.

Ok, that guy was perfect for that role. How many hundreds of times do you think he had to practice that?

Thanks for the smile :)

ahem....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I loved the constant "back at me!" but the best line by far was, "I'm on a horse."

Courtney will need to see that the next time we come over.

The answer to my own question - over 57 takes. Nice.

Thanks for posting that link, Janell! Not only was it 57 takes, more or less, but that was all one shot, no CGI. Everything was built as sets and shot in one fluid take! The diamonds were filmed separately and added frame by frame, the old-fashioned way.

That interview was very entertaining. I'm amazed at the creativity of those people... and even more impressed than before at this!!

I showed this to Josh (Sr) and he loved it so much we watched it several more times. He keeps saying "I'm on a horse" at random times.
