Look at This Blog--Now Look at Yours

Because I am not likely to be first at knowing about anything, especially when it comes to what's gone viral on the internet, I'll assume that anyone reading this will already have somehow seen the fantastic Old Spice ad that is making the rounds. Since I got it from Girish Shahane's always excellent blog, I think I'll refer you to the link by way of his. But I do encourage you to watch the fascinating making of the commercial link that is provided there. It might seem long but it's quite interesting. By the way, not even my title is original. I stole it from one of the commenters there.

My dad was an Old Spice kind of guy. Now I'm beginning to wonder if everyone's father was...


  1. I'll take a look. But first, hasn't the expression "gone viral" gone vital?
    Detectives Beyond Borders
    "Because Murder Is More Fun Away From Home"

  2. Those commercials drive me nuts, but I still just have to watch them. Kinda like a train wreck.

  3. Glenna, there are not many commercials that don't wear on me after a very short while, but I think this might be one of them. That said, I've yet to see them anywhere but on Girish's blog. I thought the "making of" segment he linked to was fascinating.
