YouTube – The Sun: Page 3 – the woman you’d love your woman to be like By autographedcat On November 12, 2010 In Blog Whatever you think of The Sun and its “Page 3 Girls”, this is a great lampoon of the Old Spice commercial. amusementslinksvideo Previous Granite State Of Mind Next Jon Stewart interview 8 Comments Add Comment → surrdave I’ve been waiting for this. The accent takes it home. November 13, 2010 Reply gridlore Cute, but she lacked the assured delivery that made the Old Spice campaign rock. Lovely coconuts, though. November 13, 2010 Reply batyatoon So this took a commercial that was brilliant in no small part because of its gender-reversal of the usual commercial technique, and … gender-reversed it. The point: ur missin it. November 14, 2010 Reply Rob Wynne *sigh* No, I’m not missing the point. I’m simply not viewing it through that lens. I’ve seen a LOT of parodies of the Old Spice commercial. I’ve *written* one. And this one does a great job of lampooning it, the sexual politics of it aside. It made me laugh on a night I didn’t have much of a sense of humour. I shared it with others, in the hopes it might make them laugh too. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it. November 14, 2010 Reply batyatoon … that was poorly said on my part. *contrite* I didn’t mean you were missing the point; I meant the Sun was. Which may not be an improvement. Still. Sorry. Didn’t mean to harsh your squee, as the fangirls say. November 14, 2010 Reply Rob Wynne *grin* No worries. And on that note, I agree with you, though I’m not entirely certain the utter upside-downness of it doesn’t just make it funnier. 🙂 *air hug* November 14, 2010 Reply elgecko This is why if I repost this — and I haven’t decided if I will — I’m switching comments off.
