Commercial Break: All hail a new Old Spice ad!

1 July 2010

Phew - we’ve just got back from the Cannes Advertising Festival, and wow, what a groovy scene it was over there. It’s an amazing place - there’s a arcade game where you get to be a cowboy and sit on a horse, firing your gun at some Indians on horseback as they slowly trot by and the hotel served seven types of cheeses.

Yeah, we WERE there. How else would we know that the very excellent Old Spice ads (as directed by Tim & Eric) won the big prize for being best at advertising, eh? Because we were there. Thank you.

Anyway, as if to celebrate their big win, the big stink-preventers at Old Spice have commissioned a new ad featuring their cooler-than-thou hero. He’s still the man that none of us will never be and he’s got a new mode of transport as well. Swan dive!

You can see the complete range of award-winning Old Spice ads here and here.
