The Old Spice robot and Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray have joined forces to double team your body. Now, take it like a man.
Thanks to a partnership with Old Spice’s new “Mandroid” robot, Murray is entering 2014 brimming with “Smelf-Confidence.” We asked DeMarco about Old Spice, “RoboCop,” his career thus far and the upcoming Cowboys 2014 season.
Are you hanging out with the new Old Spice robot as we speak?
“No, but I wish I was; he’s my robotic friend. Later on, I get to hang out and have dinner with him. He’s still sleeping from last night.”
Well, according to these new ads, he picks up all the hot babes.
“He does! That’s the guy to be around.”
Speaking of robots, who would win in a fight between him, RoboCop and the Terminator?
“Old Spice robot man, of course.”
Entering week seven in 2011, you were second on the depth chart. You rush for a franchise record 253 yards in the game against the Rams, a game you didn’t even start. Talk about your progression from that performance to being named to the Pro Bowl in 2013.
“I was given the opportunity to play because a couple of guys got banged up. And I was fortunate to have the game that I had. I never thought in a million years that I’d ever have a day like that. But I knew my time would come, so I made sure I was prepared to make the next step. Once I got the opportunity, I never looked back.”
There’s a war going on that you may not even know about. We hear a lot about world events like missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, Syria and the Middle East. But one thing we don’t hear about is the overspraying epidemic that exists for 75% of guys.
Patriots All-Pro linebacker Jerod Mayo and Old Spice have teamed up to teach men how to scent responsibly and stop this epidemic the way Mayo stopped Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta in the 2013 AFC Championship.
“I’m actually on my way now to educate young guys at Boston University to teach them how to scent responsibly,” said Mayo, concern evident in his voice.
“They know how to drive responsibly, and do other things responsibly. It’s all about scenting responsibly in 2014. I’m very excited to help end the overspraying epidemic that’s happening now.”
One reason the problem has reached epidemic levels is ignorance; 68% of guys admit that no one had ever showed them how to apply body spray properly.
The first step is acceptance — realizing that you have an overspraying problem and then taking the necessary steps to move forward.
Mayo, Captain of the Patriots defense, is here to call out your defensive spray audible.
“There’s some rules you have to abide by. First off, it starts with a shower. You have to take a shower with your Old Spice gel. That helps gets the pores open so you can put on the Old Spice Refresh Body Spray. But the thing about Refresh is that you don’t need too much of it.”

Ever since I saw the first Old Spice “Mom Song” video, I have been praying to my non-denominational Spray God every night, asking (begging) that one of the smell technicians at Old Spice reach out to me for a product review of their new Re-Fresh Body Spray. In the meantime, I used an old bottle of Fiji shower gel to feel like I was part of the movement, to show I was “down,” i.e. the way gang members have to “do dirt” to be accepted into a particular gang or sect. And it paid off.
Old Spice reached out, but just like in gang life, they wanted something from me. Even though I killed that drifter (needlessly, as it turned out) to peg my “real-a-meter” into the red, what they really needed from me was to recruit more members who cover their members in body spray. After all, 67% of guys who use body spray aren’t using it correctly.
I blame AXE for the cavalier spray techniques that have been developed, because after those ads, you thought the only way to apply body spray was via Spray Cloud. I seriously didn’t think “too much” existed in the body spray vernacular.

Wes Welker is a player that any fan can relate to, which is what makes him such a great pitch-man for Old Spice and the new “Unnecessary Freshness” campaign. But when you look at Welker’s career and laundry list of accomplishments, it becomes apparent that you are looking at the body of work befitting a future NFL Hall of Famer.
Two Super Bowl appearances as a cog in the most productive offense in NFL history. Five Pro Bowls. League leader in receptions three times. Most seasons with 100+ receptions in NFL history (5). Most receptions in Patriots history.
Welker even holds the Dolphins’ all-time records for total kickoff returns, kickoff return yardage and total punt returns. Only one player in NFL history, Gale Sayers, had more all-purpose yards in his first three NFL seasons than Welker did with the Dolphins. Legendary NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer has called cutting Welker from the Chargers in 2004 “the biggest mistake (he) ever made.”
I spoke to Wes about his career and his experience working with Old Spice.
Wes, how the hell are you?
Good, good everything is great.
Right off the bat, I’m not going to ask you any questions about comparing Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, okay?
Okay, (laughing) sounds great man. I’ve had so many of those lately it’s almost normal.
You’ve played under some of the most noteworthy coaches in football history: Marty Schottenheimer, Nick Saban, Bill Belichick and now John Fox is in that pantheon too. Who did you learn the most from and whose style did you appreciate the most?
Oh man, I tell ya, I’ve learned so much from all of them. Marty, just how he was with the players and really getting g guys going, that being my first training camp, just how hard training camp was. And how tough it was, especially with an old school guy like him. It was really cool. There’s been a lot of great coaches along the line, but I think I’ve pulled something from all the coaches. From Belichick, I learned about preparation and the way he prepares his teams and the way he gets them ready is high up there. Coach Saban was along those same lines as well, definitely had some tough training camps down in Miami. And Coach Fox does a great job of keeping everyone in line and staying on top of everybody and gets the most out of everyone. It’s been cool to see all the different angles from all those coaches.
