The least interesting advertising campaign in the world

Between this and this…

… it appears Dos Equis is going all in on using former college football coaches to hawk its wares.  Bold strategy, Cotton.

    Anything they came up with after the original Most Interesting Man in The World was going to be a downgrade. Anything they came up with after the wretched MIMITW 2.0 would seem to almost certainly be an upgrade over said 2.0, but then, I saw this clip. Dios mios, mis amigos, este es BASURA.

    Wow. They fell into a great campaign and haven’t a clue since the main actor was done with it.

    Terrible. Especially since everyone in the SEC knows he likes Cooors.

    Ouch… that actually hurt. Why wouldn’t you have him walk by the tailgate, open a beer with his visor, then chuck in on the ground or something? Whoever spent money on this needs to be reassigned.

    If you follow the you tube link, the ones with Les Miles are pretty funny.

    Fret not. When (and if) they get around to Les, it should be more entertaining. And they should do one with Granny and Corso bitch slapping each other after downing a few.

    Why Spurrier and Miles aren’t on ESPN commentating (or even just one of those coaches shows) is a mystery to me. Both of them will obviously do anything for money, so hearing them riff on other coaches seems like a natural to me. I mean, if they’ll put F-baum on the air, why not these guys?

    If Spurrier was in an ad for oxygen I’d try and figure out a way to stop breathing.

    I like it. Only, we all know he’s a Coors man.

    The original most interesting man in the world campaign was legendary. Everything after it has been trash.

    Yeah, but the beer tastes great, especially draft. Drink a couple of Dos Equis or Modelo drafts regularly at a Mexican restaurant nearby con mucho gusto.

    Es muy interesante Spurrier? Ay yi yi yi!

        There are many tasty Mexican beers. Pacifico comes near being #1 nowadays. While sport fishing in Mexico, it seemed that wherever I went, the boat captain stocked Pacifico in a very large chest, about 60 beers for 2-3 fishermen. Never came close to running out of beer on any trip there.

    Am I the only one who finds this amusing? I’d be much more apt to tune in to college game day is they would replace the sadly sputtering Lee Corso with Spurrier. As blasphemous as it sounds I would also sub Les Miles for Pollack. It’s been about 10 years so if he’s not good on tv by now it’s probably not going to happen.

        Oh no, I spent one game last year listening to him mispronounce names and talk about NASCAR offense. My ears still bleed sporadically.

          He was horrible, but I somewhat admired his complete lack of GAS. I’m pretty sure when he sat down in the booth 10 minutes before kickoff was when he started his “preparation”.

            True, there’s nothing like watching a hard phone in on live television. Wouldn’t it be ironic if ESPN replaced him via a secret plane meeting?

      I’d listen to Spurrier on SEC nation over any of the ones they got on there now. ESPECIALLY now that we’re trending up.

      Say what you want about the guy but he’s honest and hilarious.

      I’m with you. I thought the bits were funny, and I’d definitely watch them broadcast.

      Heck, somebody should just pay Spurrier, give him a 6-pack of Coors light and do a webcast of him recapping the games of the previous week. Put it on Youtube at about 20-30 minutes each week. Instant hit. Can’t believe it hasn’t happened yet.

    Miles needs to give up on being a coach and replace Corso.
