It looks as though the Old Spice battle between Fabio and Isaiah Mustafa has ended, but Fabio's random-media whirlwind was alive and well on Wednesday, when he did the weather forecast on a Portland, Oregon news station. Confusing? Yes. The perfect way to begin a weekend? Absolutely.
As you probably could have guessed, Mustafa defeated Fabio. How? By handing him a balloon that transported him to another planet full of Fabios who tried to overthrow hiim, of course. The ad is pretty long (there's 4 minutes of this), so as an alternative, have a look at his weather forecast below. He may not have won the duel, but we can all sleep a little easier knowing that Fabio can find work just about anywhere.
