Most interesting man

June 28, 2011 - Karin Elton
“Stay thirsty my friends.” I don’t know why that’s a good message — being thirsty is a bad thing. And if you are thirsty, drink some water. Drink a beer because you want a beer.

That tag line of the “most interesting man in the world” is the only thing I don’t like about the Dos Equis commercial. I usually don’t like or watch commercials, but the Dos Equis ad is witty.

“If he patted you on the back you would list it on your resume.” “Both sides of his pillow are cool.” “When in Rome, they do as he does.” Very good comedy writing.

Let's see how I would do...

“He doesn’t get corns on his feet, but if he did, they would feed a village.” “If he drove an AMC Gremlin, people would Becker their Bentleys and buy Gremlins.” OK that last one is too unwieldy of a sentence and also the verb “Becker” is too localized. Plus young people might not know what a Gremlin is. (Google the 50 worst cars.)

Back to the coolest man in the world. “His coffee remains hot in his cup.” “He doesn’t change his own sheets, but if he did, he would always know if the fitted sheet goes lengthwise or across the bottom.” Another unwieldy one. Unwieldy like a fitted sheet.

Naturally there are websites about the most interesting man in the world. You can buy a T-shirt that says “He lives vicariously through himself.” It has a photo of him skydiving in tandem with a lion.

“His nail polish never chips.” This isn’t as easy as it looks.

“If he sees a cloud formation that he doesn’t care for, he fashions one that is more...interesting.”

I better keep my day job.
