Battle of the 'Old Spice' Guys: Isaiah Mustafa Goes Up Against Fabio (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 26th 2011 5:45AM
Isaiah vs. FabioIt's going to be sweaty and dirty, but oh-so-great-smelling later today when the old and new 'Old Spice' guys go at each other in the bathroom.

That's right: Isaiah Mustafa has accepted his successor Fabio's challenge to a duel. The two hunks, tongues squarely in cheeks, will face off at 12PM ET Tuesday, in the online showdown billed as "Mano a Mano in El Baño."

Fabio issued the challenge yesterday with the aid of two comedy duelling pistols and Mustafa quickly accepted, ridiculing his opponent's tactics: "A real man would have challenged me to a duel with a left-to-right slap across the face."

We're on a Boat ... With the Old Spice Guy, Isaiah Mustafa (VIDEO)

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Jun 22nd 2011 3:00PM
Isaiah Mustafa (aka the 'Old Spice Guy') has had a ridiculous amount of success stemming from one commercial. Of course he went on to make more of his 'The Man Your Man Could Smell Like' ads, but none struck a note in the market more than the first.

It didn't stop there. He took on the Old Spice role because he was looking for a way into the industry, and boy, did he get it. Since the ads' soaring popularity, Mustafa has appeared in several TV shows ('Ugly Betty,' 'Eli Stone,' 'NCIS,' 'Days of Our Lives' among them) and even has a role in the upcoming movie 'Horrible Bosses.'

AOL TV caught up with Mustafa at a stopover in Toronto, and he was -- where else -- on a tall ship filled with beautiful women and very tasty food. He talked about his favorite TV shows, what he thinks about all his success and how he handles this whole 'sex symbol' thing.

The 'Old Spice' Kid on 'Ellen'"I'm on a horse." If you don't recognize these words, then maybe you haven't seen the now famous 'Old Spice' ad starring Isaiah Mustafa. Two weeks ago, 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated) featured a video made by Christian Lee that was a reenactment of the iconic ad. Now, the 11-year-old Lee appears on the show to do a live performance of the commercial ... with a little professional help.

'Old Spice' on 'Ellen'It's viewer mail day on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated). And on the latest episode of the show, DeGeneres gets a fairly... unusual message from some fans. Two of her viewers -- a mother and son -- send in one of the weirdest videos that you'll ever see.

Old Spice Ad Is One Commercial We Don't Fast Forward Through (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 4th 2010 4:00PM
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.

So How Did They Film That New Old Spice Commercial Anyway?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 22nd 2010 3:02PM
It seems like TV Squad is ruining the illusion of television lately. Last week we showed you how often ChromaKey/green screen is used on TV, and now here's a behind the scenes look at how that new Old Spice commercial was filmed (the one with the guy on the boat, then on the horse). Leo Laporte had two of the guys behind the ad on his TWIT web show recently. Surprisingly, it wasn't all done with special effects.

I laugh out loud every time I hear the guy say "I'm on a horse." So quick and deadpan and funny.

Awesome! Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Chalke to host Creative Arts Emmys

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 22nd 2008 11:01AM
Neil is awesomeThe Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards -- affectionately known as the Shmemmys to Kathy Griffin fans -- has at least one more viewer this year. I will be watching the other Emmy presentation, the awards that come before the Primetime Emmys. The big one with all the major categories, musical numbers, clip montages and near-mandatory attendance by the nominees is the Emmys. The other one is the technical awards. But I will be watching for a very good reason: Neil Patrick Harris and Sarah Chalke will be co-hosting the Creative Arts Emmys this year on the E! channel, September 20.

Neil, an Emmy nominee for How I Met Your Mother, and Sarah, who is also a guest/semi-regular on Mother as well as a permanent regular on Scrubs, are a great choice for this gig. They're smart, funny, quick, attractive and maybe even unpredictable.

I mean, wouldn't it be a hoot if Neil came on stage in his Dr. Horrible gear and asked Sarah if her Hanes undies were riding up or doing their job? She should then counter and ask him about that smell, you know ... the Old Spice? Hey, maybe they should get Bruce Campbell to confront Neil about the Old Spice deal -- that was Bruce's commercial before Neil took over!

Bruce Campbell still loves the Old Spice - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted May 19th 2007 11:04AM

bruce campbellDeadpan and hysterically self-aware B-movie icon Bruce "Don't Call Me Ash" Campbell appeared in an ad for Old Spice back in January, but if you thought he was done pitching the manly fragrance, then you've got another thing coming, you primitive screwheads.

In this new spot (see it below, along with another behind-the-scenes clip) a suave and debonair Bruce woos a group of lovely ladies with a lounge rendition of Duran Duran's "Hungry Like the Wolf." I can't imagine Bill Murray would have done it any better.

These ads, along with the Mac/PC ads from Apple, hold the special distinction of being commercials I will actually stop and watch while skipping past other commercials with my Tivo. What can I say, I've been a fan of Bruce from the moment he first strapped that chainsaw to his arm.

See Bruce croon after the jump.

Bruce Campbell wants you to wear Old Spice - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 10th 2007 11:03AM

bruce campbellLast night I did the unthinkable. I actually stopped and watched a commercial on my Tivo. Correction: I stopped and actually hit rewind on my remote so I could watch a commercial. Why did I do this? Two words: Bruce Campbell. If you don't know that name, then you're obviously not a fan of that classic horror trilogy consisting of The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness. Evil Dead II is the best one of the three, and I'm willing to fight anyone who says different. You might also know Bruce as the titular lead in the TV series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr., or from such series as Xena: Warrior Princess, Hercules and Jack of All Trades. Bruce often works with his childhood friend Sam Raimi, and has appeared in all of Raimi's Spider-Man films. Raimi also directed the Evil Dead films and executive produced Xena, Hercules and Jack of All Trades.
