Cisco Tries to Capitalize on Isaiah Mustafa's Mantastic Viral Ads

Old Spice's recent YouTube campaign has spawned a new attitude towards viral video campaigns. Recently a Cisco spoof appeared on YouTube, with a video by Doug Webster from Cisco's Service Provider Marketing Team introducing their very own, and completely different (in a bad way) Isaiah Mustafa-esque character.

Ted from Accounting is his name, and he is the focal point of the Cisco spoof, with a very droll tone and not-at-all charming appearance or personality. Cisco had the right idea by replicating Old Spice's successful campaign, but as Ted can surely calculate, they fell well short.
