Don Draper Really Nailed These Old Spice Ads

Look, I’m an adult who has been to college (jealous?) who understands the ways in which advertising manipulates human insecurities and/or wish fulfillment in an attempt to convince over-active consumers to spend their money on terrible products they do not need. Moreover, I am not in the market for ANY kind of bodywash because soap will do just fine, thank you very much, and if I was going to subscribe to an Axe-brand lifestyle choice, I would just buy actual Axe-brand products. But these Old Spice ads are (still) so charming!

I’m sure it took Peggy and Harry Crane all weekend to come up with this, but it was totally worth it. Take the afternoon off, boys. (Via TheDailyWhat.)
