Old Spice’s advertising of late has used the tried-and-tested path of irony in an attempt to shrug off its fusty image. This new global campaign for the deodorant from Wieden + Kennedy Portland continues in the same amusing vein…

 

 

The campaign consists of two new TV spots, shown above, plus a series of print and poster work, including two ‘rub and sniff’ executions (shown below), which will appear in men’s mags including Men’s Health and Maxim. Interestingly, they don’t seem to have updated the bottle design much, which kind of makes us happy. Are we just being nostalgic though?
