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.

Old Navy Conjures Some 90s Nostalgia with Cast of ‘Blossom’

It seems as though the hiring manager at Old Navy’s “Funnovations Inc.” is quite the fanatic of early 90s sitcoms. After all, Blossom star and current Big Bang Theory cast member Mayim Bialik revives her giant floral hat for a stint spent deploying “Bee Bots” on spring dresses. It’s always amazing how quickly these Old Navy spots from CP+B and prodco Brand New School turn into surreal portrayals of a dystopian society controlled by excessively cheerful celebrities who run clothing factories.

So maybe using Bootsy Collins to sell boots last winter was a bit of a stretch, but if there’s one media personality we can immortalize for bringing colorful clothing to the masses 20-some years ago, it was blossom and her outrageously bright clothing. Also, it’s kind of nice (and a little depressing) that Joey Lawrence can still make some money on the side by not wearing a shirt and saying, “Whoa.”

On that note, who’s ready for the second season of Melissa and Joey on ABC Family? Credits after the jump.
