While I feel like a bit of shill for Old Spice, the Old Spice Guy is pretty hilarious/ridiculous, his narcissism only matched by his randomness. Both are on display in this short video celebration of libraries by a pitchman who is utterly convinced of his handsomeness.

However funny this may be, a parody done by students at BYU beats it, hands down:

Happy Friday!

What a creative approach to promoting libraries! Trust the next generation to inspire.

OMG – you are so right. That second video is hilarious and totally on point (although I may still throw a pigeon at you)!
