TechSpot has been able confirm with Microsoft that Isaiah Mustafa, the ‘Old Spice Guy’ from viral video fame will in fact be part of the launch of Windows Phone 7 in Australia.

"Yes. Isaiah Mustafa is coming to Australia for the launch of Windows Phone 7 at retail. He will be involved in a mix of broadcast, radio, print and digital outreach while down under." a Microsoft spokesperson said.

Not having had any urges to watch a man with his shirt off I was not one of the close to 100 million views of the viral videos.  However for those like me who missed the summer phenomena I have embedded an example above.

Is this paragon of manliness just what Microsoft needs? Let us know below.

Thanks Randy for the tip.
