Old Spice Bruce Hungry Like The Wolf

Bruce Campbell returns to his role as Old Spice “Man of Experience” in Hungry Like the Bruce, a TV ad directed by the Perlorian Brothers. Bruce Campbell, known for his role as Ash in the Evil Dead trilogy, as well as his cameo appearances in Spiderman movies, sits at a grand piano (labelled Ahoy). Around him are gathered young women, including Siberian supermodel Irena Pantaeva. Bruce launches into a laid back version of the Duran Duran 1982 hit song, “Hungry Like The Wolf”.

Take a close look and you’ll see Bruce take his hand off the keys while the piano music continues to play. Sitting beside the manual typewriter is a cannister of Old Spice Classic Red Zone Body Spray.

Lyrics from Hungry Like The Wolf

Dark in the city, night is a wireDuran Duran - Duran Duran: Greatest - Hungry Like the Wolf
Steam in the subway, earth is a fire
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do
Woman you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do-do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do, do do

In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Smell like I sound, I’m lost in a crowd
And I’m hungry like the wolf

    I found this page typing in a google search box, “Old Spice commercial make no f****** sense”.

    What is the point of this commercial? I’m surprised anyone would take credit for it. It…how can I put this? Sucks?
