CP+B Continues Rekindling ’90s Nostalgia for Old Navy

Well, after bringing back Blossom aka Mayim Bialik and turning NKOTB crooner Jordan Knight into an infomercial pitchman of sorts, where would CP+B turn to next to mine some ’90s relics for Old Navy? You guessed it, a couple of cast members from the original Beverly Hills 90210, namely Jason “Brandon Walsh” Priestley and Gabrielle “I’m almost 30 and playing a high-schooler” Carteris. Here, the old chums from one of our fave shows from said decade help promote Old Navy’s back to school specials and have actually aged fairly well. But man, elementary school sure has changed since we attended.

Jordan Knight Lands New Gig as Old Navy Crooner

My, how the mighty have fallen. Well, not really, considering New Kids on the Block (or NKOTB in their later, mature years) had their heyday over two decades ago. Anyhow, one of the group’s main former pop idols, Jordan Knight, has now taken his talents to the infomercial world, belting out hits for–wait, what?–Old Navy’s summer catalog. Yes, this somewhat amusing video comes to us from none other than Crispin Porter + Bogusky, which continues stoking our late 80s/early 90s nostalgia (Blossom spot, anyone?) by using the singer to promote its client’s flip-flops and summer tees among other things. Yeah, we’re not sure what to think either, but you can check out the Facebook component of the campaign here. Credits after the jump.
