I think that this series of commercials contains some of the best commercials that I have ever seen:





I don't even drink, and I want some of that.

That's pretty bold. I might even go so far as to say extremely bold.

I feel that it is also daring.

They remind me of a Wes Anderson movie. Especially the intro to Royal Tennenbaums.

Courtesy of Wikipedia:

Quote:
In 2007, Dos Equis inaugurated its "most interesting man in the world" advertising campaign. The television advertisements feature a bearded, debonair, Argentinian or Cuban gentlemen in his 50s or 60s (portrayed by actor Jonathan Goldsmith). In the television advertisements, while vaguely Spanish music plays in the background, a montage of daring exploits involving "the most interesting man" ("his beard has experienced more than other mens' entire bodies") when he was younger are displayed. The younger version of the most interesting man in the world looks very similar to Fidel Castro. While the precise settings are never revealed, at various points in various commercials, he frees an angry bear from a painful-looking bear trap; shoots amazing pool before an Indian audience; catches a marlin while cavorting in a Hemingway-esque scene with a beautiful, perhaps Cuban, young woman; wins an arm-wrestling match in a South American setting ("He's a lover, not a fighter, but he's also a fighter, so don't get any ideas"); surfs the killer wave; bench presses two East Asian young women in a casino setting, each woman being seated in a chair;and has an awkward moment just to see what it feels like. At the end of the advertisement, the interesting man says, "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis." Each commercial ends with a signature sign-off: "Stay thirsty, my friends."


I like the beard line.

One more... actually, two quick ones... they add up to a full commercial:

I still think

Grace is a bitch

is my favorite. The little bones and paw prints around it just kill me. And it's the dog from Lady and the Tramp.
