The last time I blogged about Old Navy I was a bit of a grammar Nazi. But we’ll let the past be the past. I’ve long been a fan of Old Navy. I think I bought my first pair of Old Navy jeans in the seventh grade. I’ve upgraded to Levi’s since then, but I still love a good pair of Old Navy shorts and Old Navy and GAP solid color tees have long been a part of my wardrobe arsenal. Now it looks like they’ve upgraded their basic tee to the new Old Navy Best-Tee (I wonder if Threadless will get mad). The best part is they’ve got Mr. T to promote it.
Universe famous actor Mr. T and world renowned Old Navy have teamed up in this brand new infomercial, not yet released to the public. Mr. T’s bestie, dazzling actress Anna Farris, was having major tee troubles. Luckily, it’s Best-Tee to the rescue!
The new Old Navy Best-Tee has been totally reinvented to be the greatest, softest, best-fitting t-shirt in the history of everything. Don’t believe us? Well, think again. Check out these infomercials we made explaining why:
I love these mock informercials! They’re sort of a mashup of those silly Old Spice Man commercials and Threadless’ Ten Buck Tony. Mr. T is awesome as always. Side note: why is it that Mr. T doesn’t seem to age? Anna Farris is actually quite funny in these commercials as well. They picked the best comedian to show off the curve enhancing new Best-Tee.
This is an obvious attempt at Old Navy trying to go viral through the use of social media. The commercials have only been online for 5 days and they already have over 100,000 views each. In comparison, one of Old Spice Man’s videos on YouTube has a staggering 40 million views. Let’s see if Old Nave can achieve THAT kind of online notoriety!
