The Old Spice guy answers EW's question -- and will be answering yours...but not on a horse.

The Old Spice man is a busy guy. When he’s not swan diving, getting two tickets to that thing you love, and baking a cake in a kitchen he built with his own hands, he’s answering fans’ questions one at a time. And that includes those posed by EW, who asked two weeks ago what Isaiah Mustafa — the actor who stars in the spots — can’t do. Apparently, the answer is: “I can’t paint my toenails, study interpretive dance, or attend tea parties with stuffed animal guests. Oh, and I can’t watch romantic comedies or Elizabethan period pieces, or my eyeballs will fall out of my face. It’s less than desirable, but I’ve learned to accept my weaknesses.” (See the video, tailor-made for EW, here.) What’s unclear is whether the Old Spice guy can’t attend tea parties with stuffed animal guests, or won’t. Did he have an unfortunate run-in with a group of stuffed animals, and is now barred from their tea parties? I vote YES — but whatever he did, he only did to defend your honor, I’m sure.

So I can pose that question to him, but then again, he’ll have to answer me, and phew won’t that take up a lot of time? Instead, I’ll let him answer some of your questions, which he’s doing via his YouTube channel until Wednesday afternoon. And, for your convenience, he’s already covered whether he should swan dive into diamonds, why he didn’t say “I’m on a bike” at the end of his most recent commercial, and what bballgirlsI981 LMAO “freaking? love”s. (Just click it. Trust me, it’s funny.) After all this work, I’m glad to see that he’s been crowned king of Eastern Latvia. Which is great, because he loves grapes.

    Serious question: was there any sort of discussion as to whether or not the manliest man who ever rode on a horse backwards and walked on water should have chest hair?

    • Emoney

      Excellent question, Ceballos. There should have been. Opinions vary, of course, but I, like many ladies, do not find the bare chest all that manly, so unfortunately the Old Spice guy is not *quite* as good as he could be for me.

      • Robby

        I have no friends. How can I be a lady’s man, and have a lot of friends? Please help.

  • Nadia

    He’s so manly he doesn’t need it.

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    I wonder how many times people imitate the commerical to his face?

    LOL “The man your man could smell like”

  • cameobrooch

    These commercials are truly brilliant — the best TV ads to come along in years. Very smart and very funny, and Mustafa’s acting is spot-on. No wonder he has landed a network deal.

  • Maureen

    The only question I have is: Are you single? ;)

  • Madd

    Can he turn things into diamonds in real life as well?

  • Erin

    These ads are so brilliant, I made my husband start wearing Old Spice. He now wears Matterhorn and smells like Freedom. Awe-some.

  • Sara

    I love these ads, but how the heck did he get into the jeans and boots in the swan dive ad if it’s supposed to be one take?

    • Kat

      It looks to me like the legs on the bike are fake (like the ones at the beginning in the towel)? So maybe he’s standing behind the bike and positioning himself as if those were his legs?

      • NX

        He already addressed this. The legs are his, and he is wearing the jeans.

        He just wont say how he got into them

  • Kat

    So now I’m going through all these response videos of his, and my favorite so far is this:
    “Did you know that when one handsome man compliments another, somewhere in the world a luxury-style hot tub is born?” Awesome!
