For those of you who have been asleep the past year, don’t own a TV, TIVO everything and never see commercials, or simply are out of the “in” loop, the hottest commercial in the world has been about the most interesting man in the world. Like lots of the most creative commercial, this one, unfortunately, is also a beer commercial. But before you’re offended, take a deep breath, keep reading. There really is a biblical point to be made…
The Mythological Most Interesting Man in the World
In the commercial, they mythologize the most interesting man in the world with such outrageous, hilarious assertions as:
You can see his charisma from space.
The police often question him, just because they find him . . . interesting.
If a monument was built in his honor, Mt. Rushmore would close, due to poor attendance.
His blood smells like cologne.
On every continent in the world, there is a sandwich named after him.
He doesn’t believe in using oven mitts, nor potholders.
His cereal never gets soggy. It sits there, staying crispy, just for him.

Even if he forgets to put postage on his mail, it gets there.
