Everyone loves linklove, and so those he shouts out tweet and blog about having been shouted out, and a potent meme spreads. [ Read more here about how the ads are created. ] I agree with popular consensus: it's one of the most cleverly executed online ad campaigns ever. I have laughed at each one of the videos I've seen. And I now have a crush on Old Spice Guy, actor Isaiah Mustafa. And a nascent foam fetish.
But Old Spice Guy now has competition. His name is @OhDoctah. My heart be still. This is quite possibly the best YouTube video of all time. Watch the video here.
When I watch the video, I see this inside my mind.
(Thanks, Quinn, and @Beschizza. Disclaimer: I was paid to speak at an "A plus K" event earlier this year, but they didn't tell me anything about this campaign, or ask me to blog this, or recompense me in any way for doing so. However, I do admit I wrote this post with secret hope Old Spice Guy would video at me. Or @ohdoctah. A girl can dream.)
