Old Spice Guy Is Back

Yes, the Old Spice Guy is back in all his buff, towel covered glory for a series of quick video clips in a similar fashion to last year. Only this time, he’s taking on Fabio in a “Mano A Mano in El Bano” steel cage video match to the death (or, until one of them gets more votes online).

A handful of the Fabio videos are kinda funny. But more striking to me is the clear awkwardness of Fabio while recording these videos. I don’t know if that is part of the act or not, but looking at the Fabio videos head to head against the Old Spice Guy (Isaiah Mustafa) makes you really appreciate the Old Spice Guy’s skill and talent.

Political Humor A Few Months Old

Back in November during Election season, I am sure everyone saw the This Land is Your Land animation spoof of John Kerry and Dubya from JibJab. They have now come out with a couple more including a hysterical one called Good to Be in DC and the newest, Second Term. The guys who created these spoofs were even honored by ABC News as one of their “People of the Year” at the end of 2004. This is very good humor, although I must admit that the Good to be in DC one is by far the funniest.
