For years advertising agencies have been wanting to achieve the comedic success that Old Spice has earned. Their commercials over the past few years have been great. Hit after hit, that have left viewers laughing.
Their newest ad continues where they left off with a new “smell like a man from head to toe” campaign that features a robotic man who attracts women due to his smell. It is a great example how a creative team can take any product and market it well. Deoderant and hygiene products are not exciting, yet the geniuses at Wieden and Kennedy bring these products to life.
KISS, yes KISS the classic rock band from back in the 70’s is still thriving. They just announced today that after their 40th anniversary tour concludes this summer that they will be residents at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas in November.
This band is still making more money 40 years after they formed than most bands can even fathom of making. They are geniuses. They have been putting on an amazing show from the beginning, and now it has evolved to the band arriving on stage on a big metal spider. Their shows are amazing, and their Vegas show should be something special.
If you’ve never seen a KISS show, book your tickets now. There will never be a bigger and better show.

Kanye West is always in the media. His Red October shoes have been driving the internet crazy for the past year. Now Ye is signed with Adidas, but his Nike shoes are still the hottest on the market. People typically spend anywhere from $50-$150 on shoes, but the Kanye shoes on the other hand go for up to $5,000 on the internet. It is wild.
These guys did a little experiment to see how people would act if they saw a homeless looking man asleep with a pair of Yeezy shoes next to him. Check out their reaction to The Yeezy Experiment.
