Mano a Mano in El Bano




The Brief

Come up with a way for new a spokesman to sell Old Spice in a world where Old Spice fans only want Isaiah Mustafa.


What we did

Play into Old Spice fans' timely hatred of any spokesman who is not Isaiah by having famous beautyman Fabio usurp the Old Spice throne, and then have a massive Internet showdown with Isaiah when he returns for his people.


Plot synopsis

Fabio tries to take over as the Old Spice Guy, and challenges him to duel for the hearts of the world. People get mad, call for return of Old Spice Guy. Old Spice Guy accepts challenge.
