    Other than the tune at the end, what did that have to do with Old Spice? Where were the hot women?

    I guess you've never seen their most recent ad campaign.

    As for the commercial, it was okay but it lacked the main ingredient. The original Old Spice guy was such a damn good presence in the ad. The Apple guy, not so much. Stifled, rather than charismatic.

    I liked it, but I think it lacks a little bit of the grandiose that makes it just that much funnier, such as how the old spice guy says, "Look again... the tickets are NOW diamonds!"

    Not bad at all.....:p

    I love the Old Spice ad that this is spoofing.

    I wonder how many takes they did (in the real ad) until it was perfect?

    I heard they did 50 takes a day for 3 days to get it right, with a crew of 20 people. We made this in 2hrs with 3 takes and no cameraman. :)

    Here you go. You've apparently been missing the best thing to happen in 2010 so far.

    Wow! Over 30,000 views now in 3 days... I'm stunned. Is this normal?

    Good idea, not very good execution. But still good nonetheless.
