Old Spice – Marco Love-O

Feb. 2018

Old Spice strikes again with a creative advertisement. An elegant couple are trying to find each other with a game of Marco Polo, except they’re using the words “Old” and “Spice.” Old Spice makes the commercial seem like a dramatic soap opera which adds to the genius of it. They’re promoting the fact that they make scents for men, but the way the announcer says it, this may have a different meaning. It sticks in your brain as Old Spice’s jingle plays at the end.
