TV commercials are getting more and more bizarre, if DirecTV's creepy marionette ads weren't unsettling enough for you, perhaps the Mandroid Old Spice commercial will do the trick.

Mandroid is the new face of Old Spice, but we're not sure whether this awkward robot is meant to parody our strange fascination with robotics or if he's simply Old Spice's next go at a viral advertising hit.

The first commercial sees Mandroid walking on the beach and singing the praises of Old Spice deodorant and body wash. Paired together, these products make Mandroid feel really cool, but perhaps they've also made him a tad overconfident since he proceeds to kick a soccer ball and collapses on the floor near a sunbathing woman. But, even her crushed ribs won't stop her from noticing the bot's magnificent scent.
