This week, for the first time ever, Old Spice Guys Terry Crews and Isaiah Mustafa joined forces at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate their popular “Make A Smellmitment” campaign and the grand finale commercial, which debuted yesterday on ESPN “SportsCenter.”
We spoke to Terry and Isaiah about getting over fears of smellmitment, picking up hot babes and their journey to Old Spice pitchmen.
Bullz-Eye: Terry and Isaiah, I feel like I am in an Old Spice sandwich!
Isaiah Mustafa: Is that good or bad?
BE: We’ll see! So far, so good though. Are you guys sitting there with your shirts off right now? Because every time I see you on TV, you are both shirtless.
Isaiah: No, not this time.
Terry Crews: I am completely shirtless underneath my clothes right now!

This past weekend, the 6th annual National Beard and Moustache Championships, presented by the Traveler Beer Company, was held at Brooklyn’s King Theater. 300 beard and moustache groupies turned out from across the globe to compete in 18 categories.
But ONE MAN stole the show: veteran beardsman Eric Brooks donned a gigantic bird cage-style beard made entirely of the contestant’s facial hair — with a working cage door that opened up to allow him to chug an entire bottle of Illusive Traveler shandy, the National Beard and Moustache Championship sponsor product.
The Beer Cage was a nod to the above video “rumored” to have been staged in Los Angeles at The Groundlings improve stage in 1991, the same year Saddam decided to tangle with one general Norman Schwarzkopf Jr.

The data is in and things just got hairy.
A study of men and their grooming habits commissioned by grooming brand Braun some STRIKING figures about global men’s grooming trends.
In New York specifically, the Braun study of over 1,000 New Yorkers, revealed those with facial hair now outnumber their clean-shaven counterparts, with 67 per cent of men now boasting some sort of hair on their face. “The Full Beard” is by far and away the style of the moment, with almost 1 in 3 bearded New Yorkers favoring the “fuller” style. The ‘Goatee & Moustache’ and the ‘Balbo’ were noted as the second and third most popular facial hair styles in New York, respectively.
Are you ready for a full beard statistical assault? Here goes (Click this link for the full infographic):
– London is the city where most men have been told to choose between their beard and their relationship by their partners (20 per cent)
– Parisian men are more likely to be influenced by fashion – Paris came in as the highest city of men who would wear a beard until it was no longer in fashion (24.4 per cent)
– Barcelona men grow beards quicker on average than men in the other cities – on average it takes them just 38 days
– The most popular careers for employed New York bearded men are: IT technician / internet or digital worker (7 per cent), followed by engineers (4.2 per cent). Construction workers and accountants are both equal third (4 per cent) closing the gap on white collar vs blue collar style
