The End Of ‘The Most Interesting Man In The World’.


man-big

Even though we’ve never learned his name, the Dos Equis mascot known only as “The Most Interesting Man In The World” has started his final ad campaign. Since the first time I heard that unmistakable jingle, and heard the first few jokes, the Dos Equis campaign has been one of my favorites on television. (I’ve even remixed the theme, and performed shows with that as my intro.) Aside from the official commercial itself, “The Most Interesting Man In The World” has inspired a barrage of memes and countless 1 liners in the style of the commercial.  Some thought the Dos Equis mascot (actor Jonathan Goldsmith) had seen is last day when tumors of his death surfaced in 2013, but it seems the end of his journey takes place on Mars.  Check out what is seemingly the final commercial, what is the end of “the most interesting man in the world.

Just incase, for some odd reason Dos Equis ads are illegal in your country, take a look at some of the his classic commercial highlights… Stay thirsty my friends.

The Two Most… “Interesting” Videos On The Internet This Week.

I had an interesting time this week combing through articles, photos, and videos on the internet, and two specific things, not only caught my eye, but will cease to leave my mind.  The first of which is the new Samsung Galaxy S7 commercial featuring Weezy himself.  Lil Wayne has said that his debut role in Apartments.com’s Super Bowl ad was “dope” and the “illest idea ever.”  He loved it so much that he’s now taken a new role in Samsung’s Galaxy S7 ad campaign. The rapper said he plans to do more acting in commercials in the future.  Adweek asked Lil Wayne if he’d like to be in more ads and he responded: “Hell yeah, I do … it was kind of different to have to actually follow the rules, and that was cool. Being on the set and knocking it out, it was fun.” The commercial itself is hilarious, and quite “different”.  Check the method below.

Sausage-Party-trailer-still

The second internet clip that is now seared into my memory, is the Pixar spoof from writers/producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  “Sausage Party” may look like it’s headed for an NC-17 rating, but the creators assured advanced audiences at SXSW that it has already been awarded an R rating by the MPAA. It is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. And it is definitely not for children, so keep them far, far away.  Seth Rogen headlines this adventure as a hotdog just looking to get laid inside a delicious bun. But he soon discovers his destiny lies upon a different path. The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars. The ensemble also includes Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.  Check the trailer below.

In quite unpredictable fashion, Missy Misdemeanor Elliott, released a new song via the universally famous “Super Bowl Commercial” ad route.  In a commercial with Alec Baldwin, and Dan Marino, Missy seemingly dropped her next hit.  Check the commercial out below.

Super Bowl 50’s Captain America TV Spot.


Screen Shot 2016-02-07 at 4.31.40 PM

Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is rife with new trailers, and exciting premieres, already we’ve seen ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘Jason Bourne’ debut trailers, but the most exciting trailer by far of a film we’ve already seen a glimpse of, was ‘Captain America: Civil War’.  Filled with new looks at characters, and an ominous overtone, the ONLY thing wrong with this trailer is that there’s still no view of Spider-man.  (However, I’d rather wait until the actual movie to be surprised, so I’m not too upset by it.)

Mario’s Getting a Mercedes

If you’ve ever played a Super Mario game, you’re going to love the new Japanese commercial for the Mercedes-Benz GLA SUV.  In it, an 8-bit Mario smashes blocks, collects coins, and runs over baddies in a pixelated Benz. When he wraps up the level, the NES game turns live-action, and a tough looking Mario in Batman-esque armor emerges from the SUV.  Besides being a fun ad, it marks a notable shift for both Nintendo and Mercedes-Benz.  It’s the first example of Nintendo licensing its intellectual property after its president Satoru Iwata announced the company would move in this direction as it struggles to profit from games on its Wii U console, Bloomberg reports. The GLA will also be the first real-life car available in the upcoming “Mario Kart 8.”

Budweiser has always has heart warming commercials when it comes to the Super Bowl, in a nutshell, it tells the tale of a puppy who repeatedly escapes from its owner in order to spend time with a big  clydesdale at a nearby farm. Try as they might, the owners can’t seem to keep the puppy from its beloved, and with a little assistance from the horse’s inner circle, the animals are forever united.
