Old Spice’s robot on the beach commercial is pretty creepy

Old Spice may have given us a creepy glimpse of the future with their robot on the beach commercial. As we all cautiously prepare for the inevitable reign of Skynet, Old Spice insists on showing us this horrifying humanoid basically crushing a woman to death.

The description of the ad points out that Old Spice can make robots smell like humans. No, Old Spice! That’s a horrible idea. When the age of robots comes to fruition, we are going to have a hard enough time as is determining who is a robot and who is not.

On a serious note, is this ad supposed to be funny? We’ve grown accustomed to Old Spice’s bizarre shtick, but we have a hard time figuring out who this ad is targeting and who is supposed to be enjoying this spot.
