Old Spice ad puts you in Crews control

Old Spice Muscle Music from Terry Crews on Vimeo.

Say this much for Terry Crews: The way this guy’s career is going, he’ll never get pigenholed into any one type of role.

The versatile actor is taking eclectic to a whole new level as the star of a new Old Spice commercial going viral online in which his ample musculature makes for a one-man band like you’ve never seen.

It’s fitting Crews is adding something this nutty to his resume right now given he’s ubiquitous these days in many highly different projects: action star in “The Expendables II,” reality contestant in NBC’s “Stars Earn Stripes” and true thespian on HBO’s “The Newsroom.” Hurting for work, this guy is not.

Not so sure about why he’d do an ad like this though given the last Old Spice guy, Isaiah Mustafa, has gone from everywhere to nowhere pretty fast. Might not even have remembered his name had he not resurfaced earlier this week as the host of Hulu original series “The Morning After,” which surely was his career goal all along.

What the “Muscle Music” ad has to do with selling aftershave, the world will never know. But if you’ve ever had the urge to manipulate Crews’ body like a virtual marionette, your time is now.
