Old Spice – Questions

Following up the success of their “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” commercial, Old Spice has released another ad in the same style.  If you’ve seen the first, there isn’t much to say about the second other than that it’s good.  So enjoy:

Latest Slim Fast Ads Target Brides-to-Be

The latest batch of print ads from weight-loss drink company Slim Fast are specifically targeting Brides-to-Be.  While I can easily see how some people will take offense to the ads, I think that the underlying concept and message is a great idea and very original.  Check out one of the ads below (the other ads in the campaign can be viewed at BridePop, who I credit for the initial post).

Advertising with Handles

When I say handles, I’m not talking about the delicious ice cream, but rather actual handles that you might grab or hold on to for various reasons.  Again I have to thank Toxel.com for the awesome collection.

Old Spice – “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like”

This hilarious ad from Old Spice is another Super Bowl spot that I missed during the game, but had the fortunate chance of seeing during last night’s episode of LOST.  If haven’t seen the ad (The Man Your Man Could Smell Like), watch it here:

The ad is from Old Spice’s latest campaign of “Manmercials” and was created by the Wieden+Kennedy agency in Portland.  The ad was very well received and has gained a tremendous amount of additional publicity from online postings in advertising blogs, humor sites, and even The Huffington Post.

Though the ad is targeted at the female population (see “Hello, ladies.”), I think that it has wide appeal to both men and women.  It’s funny, memorable, well done, and definitely different.  While the brand itself isn’t as well integrated into the commercial as others that I’ve discussed, I would assume that most people recalling this ad would still remember it was for Old Spice.  Plus, you can’t go wrong ending the spot with the very quotable, “I’m on a horse.”  This is definitely an ad that people will (and are) talking about.
