(Newser) – You may have no idea who Isaiah Mustafa is, but you almost certainly know “the man your man could smell like.” That man is Mustafa, who—after relatively unsuccessful stints in the NFL and as an actor—found himself suddenly famous as the star of Old Spice’s latest ad campaign. His commercial quickly went viral, reaching 5.8 million views last week, Ad Age reports. Mustafa, who also taught math and ran a barbecue joint before becoming an unlikely celebrity, is even set to appear on Oprah.
