Facebook Goes Old Spice: The Status Your Status Could Be LikePieter posted in "Humor". 6 years, 3 months ago
Paperclip Films, a YouTube channel that is “poised to make trillions of people laugh by producing Academy Award winning YouTube videos“, has made a clever Facebook adaptation of the famous Old Spice commercial. Instead of featuring a half-naked Isaiah Mustafa as the man your man could smell like, this video stars a Facebook status “your status could be like”. Hey, we’d almost think it was an ad for Reface.me!
Gary, Grant, and Jonathan of Paperclip Films have done a superb job, achieving the same tone of the original video right from the beginning until the catchy whistle jingle at the end. Do we like these guys? Heck yes! Check for yourself:
A complete transcription of the voice-over:
Hello friends! Look at your status, now back to me, now back at your status.
Now back to me… Sadly, it isn’t me, but if you stopped talking about your daily activities and switched to a clever pop culture formula, yours could get likes like me. Look down, back up! Where are you? You’re on Facebook with the status your status could be like. What’s on your mind? Now back at me. I have it! A status with the jokes you love!
Look again! I have become too many characters. Anything is possible when you use your imagination and not your boring life!
I’m on a feed…
