* Isaiah Mustafa (aka Old Spice Guy) appears in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' as a character almost as implausibly awesome as he is in the Old Spice adverts - super confident, imposingly strong, and a perfect shot with a sticker gun at 30 feet (shooting behind his back). He even gets a tooth-gleam effect when smiling.
