Isaiah Mustafa, who recently returned to the Old Spice world in a British campaign, is now fronting a new online initiative for the P&G brand's new body spray. The campaign is built around nine bogus websites that advertise fake, faux-manly products and services—like black leather sheets, spray-tan parties, push-up muscle shirts and more—and Mustafa's comical disdain for all of them, and anyone who would be sucked in by them.
You can send the sites to friends as a prank (via Twitter, Facebook or email), and when they try to click around, a warning buzzer sounds and Mustafa appears to deliver a good scolding—an "Internetervention"—in his trademark style. A different video plays on each site, and there are all sorts of sight gags and other funny bits.
Check out the nine sites and accompanying videos below.
