TNL ESPORTS BRAND TRACKER 013: Old Spice and Rocket League Season 3 Sponsorship
In the gaming community, Old Spice is known for their wacky advertising. Their last campaign, "Nature Adventure," had Old Spice strapping a camera on a guy and leaving him in the woods for a few days, where he was instructed to follow TwitchTV chat commands.
I retroactively feel bad for him already.
In early Feburary, Old Spice launched their sponsorship of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS). With that, they join Brisk as the second non-endemic sponsor of the league.
Outside of the normal in-game branding, the the sponsorship also has a "Player of the Week" feature showcasing the top highlights. While it doesn't seem like Old Spice's usual zaniness, it's still a fun step for the brand.
One thing that would have been cool to see given the other thing that Old Spice is known for: Terry Crews.

Psst.....Old Spice.....Overwatch. You could have so much fun with it.
What could this look like? Actually, a few months ago Old Spice ran a Brazilian Overwatch tournament featuring wacky antics and (to a lesser extent) Terry Crews.
Well, they didn't really get Terry Crews but...
This seemed to be a hit over in Brazil.
Let's get something similar up and running in the States, Old Spice.
