Do you need some Old Spice?

We know Tracy Morgan declared that Black people don’t watch the Winter Olympics on "Letterman" and "Ellen," but if you have been tuning in to the competitions in Vancouver, you've noticed a topless man riding a horse on a beach, promoting Old Spice during the commercial breaks. That’s former Seattle Seahawks receiver and actor Isaiah Mustafa. And you're not the only one whose noticed him. did some investigating and found that Mustafa's been blowing up since his first Old Spice commercial launched on YouTube on February 4 and over 3+ million views to date.

His bawdiness in the advertisement was not planned, Mustafa told Los Angeles Times. The day before shooting the commercial, he called a friend from college and left an exaggerated rehearsal of his script on his friend's voicemail. He decided to try it for the ad-heads and they loved it. So, Black Male Models Can Work! Right?

Isaiah Mustafa is now one of the modern examples of an epitome of manliness. I was in Toronto when I saw these commercials, and I must admit that the production was really witty and cool. I've been seeing a lot of cool commercials lately.
