Old Spice Ad Using A 777

Sat Jun 07, 2003 2:23 am

Has anybody seen the magazine ad for Old Spice deodorant where a guy is sitting in a 777 middle seat between two swimsuit models?

Under the center overhead bins the ceiling is lowered and there is a small but clear sign that reads: "A330/A340 Cross Section." Obviously a 777 mockup, showing the 777's higher ceiling, was used for the photo shoot.

It's also interesting that one of the bottom seat cushions is hanging down like it was torn.

I would think Proctor & Gamble would have corrected these "errors" prior to approving such an ad.

Maybe it was an A330/340 with a 9 across charter configuration.  Laugh out loud

Hey ORD - chill.

I'll look into it, given that my Agency represents a large portion of P&G including Old Spice.

Some see lines, others see between the lines.

Alitalia744 - Thanks for checking on this. I meant no disrespect at all on the quality of work. By the way, I saw the ad in the July issue of Motor Trend.

As everyone on this board knows, the vast majority of the public does not care one bit if the cabin is really that of a 777 and a small sign says A330/340. It may hurt an aviation enthusiast like you but I think that is the last thing Proctor and Gamble is worried about....
