Sesame Street's Grover gets his Old Spice on

"Look at yourself. Now back to me. Now back at yourself. Now back to me. Sadly, you are not a monster. But if you listen to Grover, you will know all about the word on...."

Looks like Isaiah Mustafa, the hunky actor featured in those great Old Spice ads, has some competition -- in the form of a furry blue monster. But I don't think Isaiah minds, as it's for a good cause (and his daughter thinks its way cool) -- Sesame Street's Grover teaching kids about the word on (though not as in "let's get it on") via a send-up of Isaiah's now classic original Old Spice ad.

Here's the Sesame Street version of the Old Spice ad, titled "Smell Like a Monster," featuring Grover:

And here's the original Old Spice ad, "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like," featuring Isaiah Mustafa:

I'm on a blog. [Insert Old Spice whistle. Fade to black.]

Is this Old Spice ad really an ad? Circa? Quite funny! I love the Grover take on it. Too cute!
