Harry Mustachio Wants You to Monate Now

More Movember business, this time from San Diego shop i.d.e.a. Not only are they raising money for prostate cancer research in the name of hairy upperlips, but they’ve gone ahead and created an entire character, Harry Mustachio, who asks you to monate money instead of being a stachehole. Clearly, the folks at i.d.e.a like puns, but stachehole does have a certain ring to it. Above, you can watch a short biopic-style dramatic parody on Mustachio.

The goal is to raise $5000, compared to the agency’s $2306 total from last year. To donate and learn more about the crazy life of being a puppet with a mustache, visit the campaign’s website. Below, there’s also a video of Harry Mustachio interviewing people on the street. The clip may be a bit creepy, but Tom Selleck gets a few shout-outs, which is always a good thing.

After the jump, you can watch i.d.e.a.’s 2012 Movember campaign video, which features the “We Need You Mo Than Ever” rethinking of a pop classic. Puns can be bad, but that is well done.
