Old Spice Rolls Out World's First Scratch-and-Sniff Banner Ad Click to smell the Internet

More goofiness from Old Spice and Wieden + Kennedy—a scratch-and-sniff banner ad, which of course they're calling the world's first. It's running over on The Onion's sports section.

It promotes the Wolfthorn line of products.
