In isolation, moderately funky. If trying a tad hard.

Seen through the prism of previous work, deeply disappointing.

Think you'll have egg on your face when this picks up everywhere my good man.
Original, engaging, relevant. What more do you want? I'd be proud to have them on my reel.

These are damned good and damned smart ads.

I smiled on the first run through. Watching them again showed how clever they are.

They manage to break from formula and be entertaining to watch. But they still have all the usual mandatory elements that the kings of packaged goods insist on going into ads in this category. Yeah, I'd love them on my reel.

there is some truth in advertising........Old Spice smells like the anal glands of a wolf...or so I am led to believe.
