The Most Interesting Man
An ad campaign for many years
To sell Dos Equis beer
Employed a pitchman, who has now
Appeared to disappear.
They called him “The most interesting
Man in all the world,”
But now he’s been laid off and rumors
Naturally have swirled.
The truth, of course, is no surprise –
They’ve kicked him off the stage
For reasons very Hollywood –
In other words, his age.
The actor, in his seventies,
Has quickly been replaced
By someone forty-one, whose youth
The marketers embraced.
I guess you can’t be interesting
When your years advance,
So if offered a Dos Equis now,
I’d smile and say, “Fat chance!”
