Isaiah Mustafa has moved onto to bigger and better things, meaning, he’s a new host on the Hulu show “The Morning After.” He doesn’t have time to get nekkid and make sexual innuendos for Old Spice anymore. But that’s just fine with me, considering they’ve recruited Terry Crews to impress the world with his muscle-activated music-playing. Muscles! WHAT? And I need to learn to play the flame sax ASAP.
This isn’t just an amazing advertisement, it’s an interactive one. You can use your keyboard to control Terry as he becomes your musical, muscle-flexing puppet. You can even record your own music. Somehow. It will probably take me the rest of the day to figure it out. I am challenged like that. If anyone figures it out, please share your musical masterpieces. Also, if you can figure out what this has to do with Old Spice, I would like to understand that as well. [Buzzfeed]
Look at this bear. Now look away from this bear and look at your man. Is your man as manly as this bear? What if I told you this bear was actually just a fancy decanter for a stick of Old Spice?

In a sea of commercials where skimpily dressed sorority girls try to sell me beer, I’ve depended on the Old Spice Guy for that hottie fix I need to keep me from TiVo-ing away.

Really, Old Spice, you went from Isaiah Mustafa to Fabio? No offense, Fab, you’ve got great hair — incredible hair, really! — but this is not working for me. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Isaiah Mustafa, we hardly knew you! There’s a new Old Spice guy in town now and he is immediately less impressive than the old Old Spice guy because, well, he doesn’t have a ripped body and isn’t wrapped in only a towel. Lame, Old Spice. You cannot get us hooked on a hot piece of man meat and then rip it away like that. Who is this new guy? Why is he fully clothed? And most importantly, is he going to film a personalized TV spot for us like Isaiah did?!?! This commercial for the brand’s Danger Zone line is funny, but I miss “Hello ladies.” [Ad Week] Keep reading »
He isn’t as hot as Isaiah Mustafa
, but Grover still amuses in this Old Spice ad spoof on “Sesame Street.” How long do you think before media-savvy Isaiah and the people behind his ads get him a guest spot beside those lovable Muppets? [via BuzzFeed
