The making of ‘The Man Your Man Could Smell Like’
Leo Laporte talks to the guys who created the fantastic “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” spot for Old Spice in this clip from twit.tv. If you haven’t seen the ad in question, it’s featured in the first 30 seconds or so of the clip; if you have, you are no doubt agog at its mind-boggling greatness, not to mention the fact that thanks to some ad hipsters up in Portland, OR, the stodgiest grooming product in history is now responsible for some of the sharpest advertising on TV. Fun bonus facts: The shooting of the ad was absurdly complicated but charmingly low-tech. Also, The Man Your Man Could Smell Like is actor Isaiah Mustafa, who played four years in the NFL. So, yeah, let’s recap: Handsome, funny, and a former pro athlete. I think we can all agree life isn’t fair.
