Old Spice Ads

with one comment

Old Spice’s new advertisement campaign utilizes intense, bizarre comedy as a way to leave a lasting imprint in the minds of anyone who sees them.

All of these commercials involve a shirtless man usually screaming about how manly he is while blocking odors and breaking things.

A lot of websites have taken these commercials and posted them on their websites, because they are just so funny.

Even if the commercials don’t make you want to buy Old Spice, they are still very good at leaving a lasting imprint in the minds of the viewers.

It is really interesting that so many people I know, know about these commercials, even if they don’t watch TV. My suitemates talk about which Old Spice commercial they like the best. It is certainly interesting.

I dont feel any desire to purchase Old Spice bodywash, so perhaps the advertisement isn’t that great. But on the other hand, a large portion of the population knows about these commercials, so perhaps the ad campaign is very effective…
