Personally we don’t mind if you have a face like a baby or a British bulldog but we know it’s important to you so we’ve found the best anti-wrinkle creams around…

on in Fashion, Stuff with no comments

The online duel between two muscley men fighting for the title of ultimate Old Spice guy just got serious. Fabio (pictured) has challenged the former Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa to an internet battle using votes, likes and tweets on Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. Whilst we’re fans of the comedic adverts, we’re not all that hot on the product (Old Spice?
