Representations of Black Masculinity
I think that these commercials for Old Spice could generate some productive conversations about representations of masculinity in relation to race, class and sexuality. The first one features the viral phenomenon, the "Old Spice Guy." It debuted last February.
The second commercial was posted on youtube a month after the first. What differences do you see between the representations of black masculinity here? (How) is that reflected in the different products they are selling?
I just found this final commercial on the old spice website. It was posted on youtube this past October.
