For those who can’t get their hands on the limited-edition kits, Old Spice and Arby’s legendary commercial creative minds came together to create an iconic new advertising spot featuring the Old Spice Guy, Isaiah Mustafa, and the iconic Arby’s Voice. The spot was directed by Ruganzu “Riggs” Howard and produced by Wieden+Kennedy and Fallon. Fans everywhere will be able to check it out on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

“A collaboration between Old Spice and Arby’s makes all the sense in the world to hilariously solve the age-old problem of the notorious meat sweats that we’ve all faced at some point in our lives,” said Matt Krehbiel, Old Spice vice president at Procter & Gamble. “Old Spice continues to find unique ways to surprise and delight fans with signature humor and unexpected partnerships that remind them of the importance of long-lasting protection even if they’ve just eaten a Half Pound Roast Beef Sandwich.”

The mountainous Half Pound Roast Beef Sandwich isn’t the only place the Old Spice has been lately. This beef-tastic brouhaha began this past week when the Old Spice Guy made his presence known on the streets of New York, handing out Sweat Defense dry sprays, Arby’s gift cards and these Meat Sweat Defense kits. Decked out in an Old Spice and Arby’s SUV, the Old Spice Guy even ended up at the Meatpacking District to tell them that Arby’s has the meats.

“Whether you are scaling a Meat Mountain or a Half Pound Roast Beef, Arby’s is thrilled that our guests have access to this innovative solution that helps them fully enjoy the Meats, while avoiding the Sweats.  We are big fans of Old Spice’s products and creativity, and it was a no-brainer to have a little fun with them on this program” said Jim Taylor, Arby’s President.

The Meat Sweat Defense kits are now available online at for $60 (limited quantities available).
