Old Spice 'On A Horse' Guy Replies to Tweets On Youtube
Find our new podcast, The Social Toolkit, on iTunes.
I love the commercials too. They are remarkable and very sharable. And of course making sure they are on Youtube was a smart move by Old Spice.
So I was very happy to see them take a very “sharable” campaign and make it “social.” They are now tweeting in the voice of the commercials and with the actor from the commercial as the avatar. This is great integration.
And to take it a step further, they are now shooting personalized Youtube responses to messages on Twitter.
I shot a message out on Twitter the other day about how I loved the new Old Spice commercials. Like I said, they are shareable. They make me smile. It was pretty cool to get a reply message on Twitter in character from the @OldSpice account.
But, doing a commercial style Youtube reply? That takes things to a whole other level. THIS is remarkable stuff.
The work is being done by the Wieden + Kennedy agency. Props to all involved.
