The “Cool Guy” Trend in TV

What is going on here? Am I the only one noticing this? Brands are taking  a cue from The World’s Most Interesting Man and trying to create their own “cool guy”. Old Spice has done the best job of it, but what about the others?

Just updated to add Keith Stone and Dean Winters as “Mayhem”. Not unexpected, but notice that 3-of-6 are beer brands.

Dos Equis

Old Spice

ESPN Arnold Palmer

This commercial has been around for a while, but I thought I’d post it anyway. ESPN always has the best spots, and this one is definitely one of the best. Enjoy!

Blackberry Advertising BBM

Frankly, BBM is really the only thing that Blackberry has going for it. People that don’t have a Blackberry don’t understand how great it really is, but I’m here to tell you that it is awesome. It’s faster than texting and feels more like an actual conversation, and you are also part of an exclusive BBM club when you use it. I love the fact that Blackberry is realizing that BBM is their best feature, and they are trying to capitalize on that.

World Cup 2010

Here are a few advertisements from the FIFA 2010 World Cup. As you can see they all feature the model with their shirt pulled over their head, a common celebration after scoring a goal. Wikipedia said the celebration was made famous by Italian Footballer Fabrizio Ravanelli. Personally, I’m a fan of the orange t-shirts with the players faces on them, pretty cool idea. The other two aren’t as creative, but are included for the overall theme.
