Old Spice Offers Something to Help us Forget Fabio

Gone are the days of advertising when the same character played spokesperson for years at a time, sometimes decades. Recall the Maytag man, the Dunkin' Donuts guy or Mr. Whipple. So it shouldn't be surprising that Old Spice is dabbling with other characters for its ad campaign. No, Isiah Mustafah isn't gone for good but other characters will be brought into the mix.

A new commercial features a man who looks like a "well decorated sea captain who battles monsters on a large nautical vessel." But, thanks to Old Spice, he smells like one. Not exactly sure that a good thing but the commercial does carry the same wacky tone of the original Isiah Mustafah spot.

Other ads will feature a billionaire jet pilot and a rock star.
