Terry Crews Takes on Beards in New Old Spice Ad

NFL linebacker-turned actor Terry Crews stars in a new commercial for Old Spice’s electric razor, but you’ll be forgiven if you miss the point of the ad. Amid the yelling, but before the explosions and cross-dressing, Crews wields an Old Spice beard trimmer to groom what’s revealed to be an older Terry Crews of the future. The absurdist ad follows up on 2014’s Get Shaved in the Face video, where Crews uses the same electric razor to shave his face after reminiscing with a forlorn facial hair, also played by Crews.
