‘Puss in Boots’ Does 1 Trillionth Isaiah Mustafa/Old Spice Parody

'No-pants pants' spot is better

It's been almost 20 months since Old Spice's "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" commercial first aired (it's nearing 36 million views on YouTube), but the parodies continue—and probably will until humanity peters out centuries hence. This one's a fairly standard homage—Antonio Banderas channels Isaiah Mustafa as the title character in DreamWorks's Puss in Boots. More amusing is a second Puss in Boots faux commercial, released in August, in which the cat models "no-pants pants." See that spot after the jump. The Shrek spin-off hits theaters Nov. 4.
