Yes.

Is it just the hair appearing on his chest? Yeah, that's a creepy effect. For better or worse, I think our culture is shifting less-than-subtly away from hairiness, and in a generation or two, we'll expect no body hair at all on men or women. This is another step in that long road.

I don't think that's true, Scott... after all, the message of the commercial appears -- less-than-subtly -- to be "use Old Spice if you're man enough". And besides that... I'm with Jackie -- I've *always* preferred a nice amount of well-placed hair on a man... (i.e., not a Sasquatch or a fur dickie). Absolutely no chest hair is, to me, more than a little weird. (Sorry if any of you guys are among the freakishly hairless!)
