Old Spice commercial guys to do battle via Internet popularity contest.Old Spice commercial guys to do battle via Internet popularity contest.

Dear Old Spice, there is no need for a contest here. Isaiah Mustafa should be your permanent spokesman. If you want more information other than the previous two sentences know that Mustafa's opponent happens to be none other than Fabio. You can watch some of the back and forth videos between Mustafa and Fabio over on Mashable. It's all in the delivery. Night vision top hat!

Given that brand equity and the track record for other films based on ’80s properties, like Transformers, the idea of a Space Invaders movie has been around for a while. Last March, the L.A. Times reported that Warner Bros. was negotiating with Space Invaders owner Taito about a movie. Additionally, di Bonaventura has brought toy properties to the big screen. He is one of the producers of the Transformers films as well as G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra.

This new software will allow companies, marketing groups, and advertisers to track 'consumer sentiment' on various social networks. Just one more thing to be be aware of as you romp through daily social networking sites. It can even analyze product names, industry jargon, slang, even emoticons. :-/
