The new Old Spice ads are funny as hell. And the central most important part to the ads are Isaiah Mustafa. If you don’t remember him from the NFL, you’ll never forget him from these ads. He’s telling all the women how he’s the man with it all, boats, plenty of money, the good looks and he wants them to look at their man and compare him to him.
Well, if he dosen’t look anything like your man and your man doesn’t have all the riches, but he does have the Old Spice…stick with him! That’s the gist of the commercial and Mustafa plays a great guy to compare your husband or boyfriend to. Mustafa played on various NFL teams before getting into film. His latest commercials have upped his game and now Tyler Perry has got him on tap for his newest project coming up in winter 2010, the film adaptation of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Was Enuf.
But it was how he got the part that was so stunning. He got a call from Lady O and she just wanted to talk to him about his newfound fame when TP got on the line and shocked him. Check him out. Sorry that this is like a bootleg copy of the video. But, you’ll be able to hear it better than you can see it. Check it out:
