Old Spice Guy “Isaiah Mustafa” Takes Twitter By Storm

If you have not seen them yet, you Will.  @isaiahmustafa the Old Spice Guy has taken @oldspice to new viral heights with over 5.9 million views on Youtube.  This campaign has taken the Old Spice Twitter account from 3271 followers on July 11th 2010 to over 77k followers at this present date. The Old Spice Guy has made over 180+ Youtube video responses to his Twitter followers. My favorite so far has to be the one he did for @mrskutcher and @biz.  The numbers don’t lie and will eventually create many copy cat type campaigns in due time.
