"Introducing Rad Talkin’ Wolfthorn! Not every deodorant brand has an animated spokesperson or a toy based on that spokesperson, and we think we’ve figured out why."

It's pretty obvious that oldspice explicitly created this mascot to cater to furries considering his general proportions and design. What do y'all think of him? I'm surprised not much content has been made of him but I expect some to show up soon.

Looks like they wanted something toony over some guy in a towel. I doubt this guy was designed to cater to furries any more than most other animal mascots before him.

True true, but considering the wording of their introduction involving him and how old spice in general is notorious for catering to online humor/demographics... I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if this was direct catering to a furry demographic.


yeah a lot of you need deodorant

the only question is... will he have an anatomically correct wolfcock, or a human one?

Maybe shapeshifting is one of his superpowers. Canonical cocks.


Doctor Rockso? Is that you?

o_O did they use Dr. Rockzo's voice actor for the wolf?


I half expected him to say "I do cocaine!".


Four of the seven posts on e621 featuring him are porn. Why am I not surprised? :/

why would anyone be surprised? a nintendo employee could tweet out a very vague description of a yet to be released pokemon that may or may not appear in a new game and there'd probably be porn of that within 3 hours of the tweet...somewhere.

damn, this fandom works FAST! sickeningly so sometimes.


Being outraged is all the rage these days.

So I've decided to get outraged, because...
the Old Spice mascot has the same name as a Jewish painter who died in a Nazi concentration camp

e621 is not a porn site!


Pretty sure this is simply extending what their advertising department has been doing for years now. So like facelessmess kinda already said, they catered to furries, they knew exactly what they were doing and it is working.


pfft yeah, like we take showers. Good one!


The real question is...are the rest of the fragrances gunna get their own mascot as well? A bear for Bearglove? A hawk for Hawkridge? They're gunna end up with a whole furry squad if they're not careful.

I'm wondering if the fragrance is wet dog smell to match the mascot.


And we have more. And it looks like the furries were too much for them as they removed the comments

o_O yet another dtext quirk then...or possible bug maybe. like the unkillable punctuation related visual bug.


Out of the fifteen Wolfthorn posts, only two are rated safe and only one is rated questionable. That's 12 explicit posts. We need to have a talk.
