Did Wieden+Kennedy and DDB Chicago have the weirdest brainsync of them all? They both fancy using Jackie Moon as spokesperson. First he was in a hugely popular Bud Light ad during the 2008 Super Bowl XLII, now he's hanging around the same locker room espousing the virtues of le Old Spice in his trademark way. Didn't Will Ferrel at some point say "hay, guys.... I'm already playing spokesperson for another brand here, airing at the same time.." I guess not.
Sure sure, this is only a kindof a Badlander, but I think the sudden Jackie Moon trend is funny. Next up, lets see him hawk razors, hair gel and fast food!
Check the ads out:
Bud Light - Jackie Moon / Semi-pro / Will Ferrell (2008) 0:30 (USA)
Bonus old spice which is Jackie Moon free - The "Is Old Spice right for me" ad. Yes, yes it is.
