If you're not already familiar with Dos Equis' "The Most Interesting Man in the World" ad campaign, shame on you. It's probably the single greatest bit of mass marketing I've ever witnessed, apart from maybe the California Raisins or that "Where's the beef" lady, but I digress. The point is, if I could be anyone in the world, it would be him. Not the actor who plays him, but the actual character. I want to be The Most Interesting Man in the World. I mean really, who wouldn't? Unfortunately, that position is already taken. But even he could use a hand from time to time, so the good people at Dos Equis held an online contest to find him an assistant.
My finalist entry (scroll down to "El Guepardo Loco") is still up on the site, and you can check out the additional video I had to submit below:
Unfortunately, this guy won. But through a little internet snooping, I'm pretty sure I came in second, which ain't half bad from a pool of 10,000+. Of course, in my heart of hearts, I know that the judges/voters made a terrible mistake, but I will always be the "Runner Up to the Assistant to The Most Interesting Man in the World." And no one can ever take that away from me.
