What's so great about these ads? I don't really get it. Is it some kind of humor, that only Americans would get?

You should see what was done BEFORE these ads. Here are a few horrifying examples (it's in a foreign languages, but you don't need to read the texts):

I think it's a brilliant campaign, and a great behind the scenes video.

I agree with you actually, and I happen to be American. I think these commercials are HIGHLY overrated. Yes, they are mildly funny, but still. I just don't get all the hoopla myself. On a different note, I still won't use Old Spice.

This was a genius idea from Old Spice! The only problem I have are the new commercials with Ray Lewis. It's like they had taken the original idea of this commercial and tried to put a celebrity in it. It just doesn't work, either keep the original guy or come up with a new concept. They need a new strategy before they loose interest of consumers.
