This award-winning campaign for Old Spice was created by agency Wieden + Kennedy. The ad stars a previously unknown actor named Isiah Mustafa. The witty tagline for the advertisement alone is hilarious: “We’re not saying this body wash will make your man smell like a romantic millionaire jet fighter pilot, but we are insinuating it.”
Actor Isiah Mustafa gives a great interview below, talking about how the how the ad was created. The 9-minute interview begins with the new Old Spice commercial and then Mustafa gives a play-by-play of how it was filmed outside at two locations; on a beach in California and on a custom-built set beside an icy lake in the mountains near Vallermo, California.
