’90210′ cast reunited
The cast of Beverly Hills 90210 have reunitedfor several Old Navy advertisements. In addition to allowing the actors to reprise their much beloved characters, the commercials demonstrate an awareness of what made the classic teen drama show work.
Old Navy’s advertisements assemble in-jokes based off old rivalries, unresolved tensions and stimulating scenarios. For example, actress Jennie Garth’s character, Kelly, often ended up in situations where she had to choose between two heart throbs, Luke Perry’s Dylan and Jason Priestly’s Brandon. The ad campaign brings this conundrum to a hilarious conclusion, when Garth’s Kelly chooses “All of them!” In this case, she means the actors’ jeans.
Though these commercials are appearing at back-to-school time, they are not targeted toward kids. Today’s teens have little emotional connection to these characters. Old Navy is banking on their parents’ nostalgia to bring increased revenue to their stores.
