Every mom ponders the day her boy brings home his first girlfriend.
Some of us look forward to seeing our sons become men and others dread the day. The moms in the Old Spice commercial you’re about to see are definitely part of the latter group.
The ad is for Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray and showcases a bunch of moms who are having a hard time letting go as their boys “spray goodbye to boyhood.”
The ‘Momsong’ campaign ad has been enormously successful, going viral over the weekend by amassing more than one million hits since Friday.
The video comes with the description: “New Old Spice Re-Fresh Body Spray may cause boys to become men, girls to become girlfriends, and moms to become sad.”
While many viewers call the commercial “creepy” I happen to think it’s hilarious, and the creep factor is a part of its charm. I fully expect to be a creepy mom who quietly stalks my son and his girlfriends, and I make no apologies for it!
A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do, AMIRITE?
