Wieden continues to produce amazing spots for Old Spice, which have become some of the most memorable commercials out right now. They are so memorable, that I would be embarrassed to say that they were my favorites at an interview. Everyone probably says that. That being said, I don’t mention the Old Spice commercials at interviews. But I can’t keep it in anymore… I love those commercials! I want to have an Old Spice commercial marathon. I want to learn to quote each commercial by heart. Yes I do pretend to be the “I’m on a horse” guy while in the shower. I think it’s a wonderful idea to leave inspirational notes under my armpit. But it’s because I love these commercials so much, that I grow incredibly jealous. I want to write for them! I want to be on that creative team so I can unleash the crazy writing beast inside of me.
But such accomplishments, at this point, do not seem likely. Instead I have to sit back and watch while Wieden produces commercials for the new Old Spice Bar Soap. OLD SPICE BAR SOAP! Brilliant. That is seriously about to take the world by storm, and I don’t get to be a part of it. The closest I can get to being on that account, is lathering up in the shower. Congratulations Wieden + Kennedy, I resent you.
