Neil Patrick Harris

The new OLD SPICE commercial featuring Neil Patrick Harris is hysterical!

"As a former make believe DR. theres one product I can recommend against the torment of wetness and body odor..."
Its also very campy with a direct play on NPH's sexuality by the suggestion in the ad that OLD SPICE gets hot women to want you.

"Given the overall campaign of finding funny men who send up their own image to sell the product, it's not surprising to see the company reach out to Harris. But if you step back and look at the big picture, it's really pretty awesome: this is an openly gay man being hired to sell a product traditionally marketed to families, wives, and kids looking for the perfect Father's Day gift."

The BRUCE CAMPBELL TV spot which is excellent is here....CAMPBELL SPOT

NPH as Doogie and Bruce Campbell of Bubba-ho tep fame
