Okay, I needed some comic relief. Yesterday I caught this young man doing his spoof of an Old Spice commercial on the Ellen show. He originally made the video for his mom for her birthday because she loved the original commercial so much. Here's the original commercial:


So more than likely you've seen this commercial before, it was aired during the Super Bowl. The actor's name is Isaiah Moustaffa, former NFL wide receiver, turned actor. His voice and delivery are amazing. So, I don't know if you're like me, but I wondered how they made this commercial. Was it one shot, were there computer special effects? The answer might surprise you.



Here's a guy who wondered the same thing and interviewed the creators to find out.



This was the follow-up commercial. Okay, back to work.
