If you saw a cow in the Old Spice “Smell like a monster” TV ad, you probably weren’t paying attention. Unless… you watched the Sesame Street parodic version. I stumbled upon it this afternoon while browsing another parent’s blog and I thought it’d be a pity not to share it with you, so here you go! Hint: the cow makes its appearance towards the end, so don’t blink.
Even though I find this Sesame Street parody very funny, I’ll admit I had a hard time understanding the background story since I’ve never seen the Old Spice “Smell like a monster” ad. Hey, I don’t have cable TV, I have an excuse.
So I found this video that actually shows both ads playing at the same time. Now that is hilarious! I present you Old Spice Guy vs. Grover from Sesame Street:
Having seeing the two ads side by side, I’m not sure which one is the funniest. What’s your pick?
