TikTok is full of creativity and captivating transitions, and the platform is challenging creators to show off their skills by remaking iconic Old Spice ads. The Man Your Man Could Smell Like ad featuring Isaiah Mustafa became an instant classic when it was first released in 2010 and it became an impressive award winner at Cannes Lions.
TikTok’s Creative Lab is challenging UK creators to remake the viral advertisement in a fresh new way that fits the platform, which is known for its clever editing. Already, comedian Munya Chawawa and Capital radio presenter Niall Gray have shared their takes on the ad and they were asked to infuse their clips with humor and British references.
