In the latest two spots for Old Spice, Wieden + Kennedy continues its odd ways, but with a Valentine's Day twist. It continues the 'Red Sweater' theme started during the Grammy Awards, that aired in French.

In 'Marco Love-O', a beautiful woman in a long red dress runs through a fancy darkened palace, calling out “Old”; In response, a handsome, tuxedo-wearing man emerges from behind a fancy statue, returning her haunting call with “Spice.” Where could he/she be? Will they find each other? Perhaps he’s hiding inside a giant, museum-quality Old Spice Ambassador stick. A broken mirror makes it all seem so hopeless. At last, “Old” and “Spice” find each other, proving that there’s no need to chase the premium scent that you desire.

'Mask' states, if the masks we wear define us, then this commercial selling Old Spice hair products is a peerless study into the psychology of the human brain revealing that deep down within the human beast is an infant baby that is motivated by five basic necessities: fuel, shelter, companionship, mental stimulation, and fajitas meals.
