The Old Spice ads are back in a big way, with a series of different ads, including one with a dolphin, and one with Kevin Hart. Has it really been 10 years since the first viral Old Spice ads? Time really flies. Via People:
Ten years ago, Isaiah Mustafa stole our hearts in the iconic Old Spice “Smell Like a Man, Man” commercials. And in honor of the 10th anniversary of the campaign, the brand brought Mustafa back — except this time, he’s a good old embarrassing father.
On Thursday, Old Spice debuted the “Smell Like Your Own Man, Man” campaign, dropping two new ads starring Mustafa and his son, played by Straight Outta Compton star Keith Powers. Powers represents Old Spice’s new Ultra Smooth lineup, designed for “guys who prefer subtle scents but seek superior performance and dermatologist-tested formulas.”
In one of the new spots, Mustafa, 45, interrupts his exasperated son’s basketball game with friends to give him a few Old Spice pointers. In the second spot, he drops by his son’s office, and once again, Powers, 27, breaks the news that he’s carved his own path — and is sticking to his own Old Spice product choices.
