Commercial Break: The Old Spice parody industry begins
We’ve all had our heads turned in dramatic fashion by the Old Spice ads – they’re clearly the funniest thing ever made and we’re in no way becoming jaded with the overkill.
As you’d expect, the spoofs, parodies and rip-offs have started and while most of them are woeful and ill-witted, this one isn’t. It’s been made by Brigham Young University's Harold B. Lee Library in the USAmerica.
It’s presumably been put together using a minuscule fraction of the budget that Old Spice had access to, but they’ve managed to replicate some of the tricks from the original… and it sort of makes you want to strap on a backpack, head for the library and learn some stuff.
