BTW – the Old Spice videos over the last couple of days were an amazing marketing feat. To create that kind of buzz. See more on Read/Write Web.

    I particularly enjoyed the

    “It’s a laptop with access to FUCKLOADS of library databases!”

    But really, I just wanted to say FUCKLOADS.

    love that this video is from BYU! that’s where i’m going in the fall

    Yes, he said bucket loads. If he used the f* word I am pretty sure he’d escorted off BYU property and told to never come back. BYU has a strict honor code.

    As a Utahn and a non-Mormon I think the honor code is ridiculous, but no one is forced to go there.

    Awesome, funny, and creative spoof, however.

    Two of us in the same office both said, “Did he just use the F-word?” Another colleague laughed at us and said, “that was BUCKET LOADS.” I’m kinda glad we weren’t the only ones who misheard… It’s an excellent video with great editing! Very smooth

    its not fake, it was a viral marketing thang to fuel a new public image for Old Spice.
    also, he said “bucketloads”, just like 8 out of 5 dentists would have. lol

    This is an exact clone of the old spice commercial. How is it funny? If they were making fun of the commercials, I guess I would get it. It’s like when those Wassup Budweiser commercials came out.

    To those who called it fake… obviously you cannot fucking read,
    “Library parody of the Old Spice ads – this is hilarious”

    Key word in sentence: “parody”
