Wieden + Kennedy creative team Craig Allen and Eric Kallman appeared on Leo Laporte's "This Week in Tech" video show to explain the story behind the Old Spice "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" TV spot. The commercial has developed quite a following—it's gotten about 2 million YouTube views as of this writing.
