Old Spice CommercialIn the era of DVRs and online streaming, it's getting more and more difficult for advertisers to find a way to get viewers to sit through their commercials. One trick that always works is to make a brilliant commercial. Old Spice has managed that in a short spot that almost defies description.

On the air less than a month, we can't even tell you exactly what it is about the commercial that makes it so amazing, but we'll give a lot of the credit to the acting performance by Isaiah Mustafa, the man your man isn't.Old Spice CommercialIn the era of DVRs and online streaming, it's getting more and more difficult for advertisers to find a way to get viewers to sit through their commercials. One trick that always works is to make a brilliant commercial. Old Spice has managed that in a short spot that almost defies description.

On the air less than a month, we can't even tell you exactly what it is about the commercial that makes it so amazing, but we'll give a lot of the credit to the acting performance by former NFL player Isaiah Mustafa, the man your man isn't.

From the moment he grins at the camera and tells you to "Look at your man. Now back to me," Mustafa is in full control of the audience. His delivery is two parts sincerity, one part confidence and three parts sarcasm -- the perfect blend for hilarity.

Clearly a man's man, when he offers two tickets to "that thing you like," he doesn't even know or care what it is. He just knows you like it as well as diamonds -- so that's what you get. The commercial jumps from location to location, and wraps up with the random claim, "I'm on a horse." Even more dreamy!

Every man wishes they could be as suave and confident as Mustafa in this commercial. Even Mustafa probably wishes he were this version of himself.
