It’s amazing how brands love to use someone else’s big splash and ride it for their own … after the amazing success of the Old Spice campaign
, many brands chose to follow the same spot archetype – which should have been somehow trademarked –. Sesame Street launched their Smell Like A Monster. With over 5 million views, this cute spot quickly went viral.
• Old Spice accounted for 75 percent of conversations in the category in the first three months of 2010.
• Half the conversations came from women.
• The YouTube/Twitter social media response campaign was “the fastest-growing and most popular interactive campaign in history.”
• More people watched its videos in 24 hours than those who watched Obama’s presidential victory speech. (Which most of us can agree is kinda sad.)
I am so glad I [accidentally] decided to write about the Old Spice videos last Friday
, prior to the social media campaign launch. The Old Spice simple and clever social media campaign has been running for the past 48 hours, allowing fans, influencers, and random people get their own personalized Old Spice video response by Tweeting, through Facebook, or Youtube commects … amazing!

is pretty good.
Inevitably and as expected, the videos got views, but following rapidly increased across all channels.
