In one, a family decides to take a "staycation" instead of a vacation so it won't miss an important package. In another, a dentist performs work on his front porch to he doesn't miss a package that might have been delivered to his office.
In yet another freakishly wacky Old Spice commercial entitled Baby, Terry Crews can be seen marveling at how Old Spice's new shaving gel is "newer than a fresh pair of socks" ... that talk ... about how Old Spice shaving gel is newer than a new jersey, newer than a new mouse, newer than a new waffle iron, newer than new solar panels ... and newer than ... Terry Crews' son. Say what? Look at that baby! Freaky! And kind of funny.
While Big Data is the buzzword du jour and every agency and brand is trying to get a handle on it, there are still those who believe the big idea will always trump the "biggest" data.
Amusement Park's Jimmy Smith who is a Branded Entertainment Juror for the Clios is one such person. Recalling what Lee Clow told him about Steve Jobs, Smith argues one of the biggest and most successful brands in the world never much relied on research to develop its ad campaigns.
Awesome. We haven't seen a blatantly sexualized commercial like this in quite some time. Just what we need to get our spirits up today.

What the? A livestream from Cannes? What's up with that? Isn't the entire point to waste shitloads of money traveling to Cannes, France for a week to bask in the sunshine and drink Rose on the Carlton Terrace (and shitty beer at the Gutter Bar) on the company dime? How the hell are brands and agencies going to waste all this boondoggle money if we don't even have to go?
