With tongue firmly in cheek, Old Spice uncovers a male crisis reaching epidemic proportions in its “Never Let a Friend Lose His Swagger” campaign from Wieden+Kennedy, Portland, Ore.

In the mix is a series of over-the-top dramatized spots that explore the syndrome whereby men sacrifice their guy friendship time. The antidote: Old Spice Swagger, which brings the swagger back, negating the tendency to be a lone wolf/lonely guy.

Steve Rogers of Biscuit Filmworks directed the spots which include “Next Episode.” This :90 spot stars Sarunas Jackson (Insecure, Games People Play, Good Trouble) who shows that friends don’t let friends spend the night at home in a binge-watching blackhole.
