Old Navy Ad Description

Spring 2012 commercial for Old Navy featuring their new line of shoes called Pop-Kicks. If you notice, it’s set in a lab at “Old Navy Funnovations” where different kinds of parties are sectioned off. The pary they’re focusing on in this commercial is the summer picnic party. The “hostest with the mostest”, in the adorable blue dress, do you recognize her? Have you ever watched the tv show Reno 911? That’s Sgt. Johnson, aka actress Wendi McLendon. After our hostess talks about Old Navy shoes, everybody starts having fun and dancing to the song Footloose.


I thought this was interesting. Old Navy also released the same commercial in Spanish called “Old Navy Presenta: Día de Zapatillas Pop Kicks en el Parque” Everything is exactly the same, but all of the speaking is in Spanish, and instead of Wendi McLendon, it’s a different Latina actress in the exact same blue dress.

More About Artist & Song

So if you’re older than 30 years old, and don’t know nearly every word to the song Footloose by Kenny Loggins, I’d like to officially welcome you to earth. The song was featured prominently in the movie “Footloose”. When the American Film Institute rated their top 100 songs used in film, Footloose was ranked at #96. There was a point during the 1980’s that Kenny Loggins was known as “King of the Movie Soundtrack”. He had hits for the movie Caddyshack, then in Footloose, “Danger Zone” from Top Gun, and “Meet Me Halfway” for the movie Over The Top.

While we’re at it, here is the music video for the song: Footloose:
