Video Virus: Old Spice Brings New Fame to Isaiah Mustafa

The latest Old Spice commercial featuring a very cute, deep-voiced, ex-football player, tickets to that thing you love, a beach, and a horse is an internet sensation.

While the grandfather-reminiscent, musky-scented bodywash probably won’t make your man appear manlier, it is amassing over 3 million hits on Youtube, and launching the actor Isaiah Mustafa into the pop culture lexicon. The Early Show on CBS even got in on the viral video action and had the first sit-down with the actor.

Obama Reminds Letterman He Was ‘Black Before the Election’

Obama became the first sitting President to guest on a late night talk show when he visited the The Late Show on Tuesday as part of his media campaign to support his health care plan.

The President addressed the recent claims in the press that opposition to his health care reform was fueled by racism saying, “First of all, I think it’s important to realize that I was actually black before the election.”

He went on to say, “whenever a president tries to bring about significant changes particularly during times of econmic unease, then there is a certain segment of the poulation that gets very riled up…FDR was called a socialist and a communist. JFK, there were all kinds of names hurled at him. Ronald Reagan when he came into office he was moving in a different direction and people were sure he was bringing the country down.”

Obama also received a heart-shaped potato from an audience member.

Do You Agree With Kanye West’s Outburst at the MTV VMAs?

kanye-west-taylor-swift-MTVEven though Kanye West was out of line when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for best female video at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, we kind of think he was right in declaring that Beyonce “had one of the best videos of all time!”

Everyone was doing the “Single Ladies” dance, from the President to Justin Timberlake, so how did country singer Taylor Swift end up with the VMA for best female video? And coincidentally, Kanye had an outburst in 2004 when Gretchen Wilson, a country artist, beat him out of the best new artist award at the American Music Awards. He fumed, “I left like I was definitely robbed and I refused to give any politically correct … comment. I was the best new artist of the year!” He even alluded to a conspiracy of some sorts.

Does Kanye have a grudge against country music? Is country music grinding it’s boot on his neck holding him down?
