Wow! I must say, I love all of the Old Spice commercials, but this one is one of my favorites. It reminds me of Street Fighter with the un-synced voices, the low-res explosions, and the “OH NO!” What could be worse than marrying yourself!? All around I love this commercial and it kept me laughing from start to finish. All of my friends that watched this one with me were busting out big laughs – Old Spice knows how to win over the high school crowd.

The ad had way too much screaming and yelling! Many might go for their mute button. This commercial doesn’t build the brand’s image– all the screaming and violence may even hurt the Old Spice brand image. I wanted to turn this commercial off.

The 18 year old

A rising student of film, Graham measures all advertising against his favorite movie scenes. So a commercial with a good car chase plays well. Better with an explosion. And funny. It should be funny. So a speeding car that explodes in an amusing way will sell product.

The 80 year old

Graduate of Amherst College and Harvard Business School, Tom doesn’t let his Ivy League education interfere with an appreciation for inane advertising campaigns. He more than appreciates a poodle in a business suit selling cleaning products. He also enjoys talking babies.
