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 The actor, in his seventies, Has quickly been replaced By someone forty-one, whose youth The marketers embraced.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!”

Excellent and amusing poem! But seriously, I will also abstain from Dos Equis offerings!

I watch very few commercials, except the really comic ones. And beer I do not like at all, except one: Fin du Monde, a Canadian beer which, to my taste, does not at all taste like beer. You might try it if it's sold in your area, and, of course, if you like beer. Your last stanza is right on, Ilene! And it goes for me as well. / M

I loved his commercials. That is just not right. We all should say fat chance.
