Wieden+Kennedy took home an Emmy for Outstanding Commercial at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony this past Saturday evening for its Old Spice commercial The Man Your Man Could Smell Like. Last year the agency won for Coke Heist.

"Winning an Emmy is a surreal experience. It's such a great honor to be recognized by the entertainment industry and encourages our desire to create work that not only sells products, but entertains people. We're very honored to have been one of the three Wieden+Kennedy spots nominated. Owning half of the six nominations is a testament to the amazing creativity happening inside the walls of our office, and the talented people and clients we get to work with," said Jason Bagley and Eric Baldwin, W+K creative directors for Old Spice.

Great work, WK.
