Old Spice spoof contest is over with Grover

Smell-like-a-monster-1

Just when we were all tired of the Old Spice guy spoofs, along comes Sesame Street with its own version. This one has Grover saying, “Sadly, you are not a monster,” while teaching kids the use of the word “on.” The whole thing is done quite well, and is yet another sign of how great advertising can still deeply penetrate the culture. The Sesame Street video ends with the tagline, “Smell like a monster on Sesame Street.”
