Yesterday new Old Spice guy Fabio challenged old Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa to a duel saying, “The old Old Spice guy was no good. He give you diamonds from a clam fish? Dumb.” Well now Isaiah Mustafa has accepted Fabio’s challenge. The duel is set to go down at 12pm EST today, and the Old Spice YouTube channel is preparing with a brand new design promoting the duel, ‘Mano A Mano In El Baño’.
Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa has been speaking out against Fabio on Twitter and last night he accepted Fabio’s challenge to a dual on YouTube. He greets fans and apologizes for his absence, saying, “I know you’ve been well because I’ve been watching you…You know what else I’ve been watching? A certain man with hair who’s been using a very harsh and heavily accented vernacular to challenge me to a dual.” He accepts. The dual is on for High Noon (EST) today!
A promo for the dual also hit the Old Spice YouTube channel yesterday and changed the channel design to match.
If the quality of last year’s Old Spice Response campaign is any indication, we are in for a real treat when Mano A Mano In El Baño kicks off later today. Nobody is sure exactly what is going to happen at 9am Pacific/12pm Eastern but my guess is it’s going to be pretty exciting stuff.
Will you be tuning in to see what happens with Fabio and Isaiah Mustafa go head-to-head? Who do you think will win the dual?
