The original Dos Equis ads (see video above
) introduce "The Most Interesting Man in the World," who says, “I don’t always drink beer, but when I do I prefer Dos Equis.”
According to The New Yorker
, "The Most Interesting Man in the World" enjoys unusual privileges because people find him irresistibly fascinating: "At museums, he’s allowed to touch the art... His blood smells like cologne... Sharks have a week dedicated to him... He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels... The police often question him, just because they find him interesting."
The ad shows the hero cliff-diving in Acapulco, adventuring in a space capsule and lying in a hospital bed stitching up his wound while surgeons stand idly, mesmerized by his extra-ordinarily "interesting" presence.
spoofs this advert with a l-minute black-and-white montage that shows President Barack Obama, aka, "The Most Arrogant Man in the World," making arrogantly rash executive decisions. The Gateway Pundit
describes the video as highlighting "the unequaled arrogance of our Narcissist-In-Chief... with an uber-ego elevating him above the constraints of our Constitution, as well as, the rules of international conduct."
The ad (see video above
) says, "Out of respect, they gave him the Nobel Peace Prize without him doing anything…and he took it. He changed healthcare for millions of Americans even though they liked what they had. He says he will tell Iran to quit making nukes and they will stop because he is just that good. He picked Joe Biden to be his Vice President... just to show that he doesn’t really need one.”
The narrator then concludes: “He is the most arrogant man in the world.”
The ad shows an Obama impersonator, saying: “I ultimately get what I want. Stay ignorant, my friends.”
According to MSN Now
is a nonprofit conservative organization that makes "video based illustrations that rebut liberal ideology with common sense arguments." According to Reuters
, RightChange describes itself on its website
as a “new generation of conservative film, Hollywood, TV and technology professionals” working to “counter the internet dominance by liberal and progressive groups."
reports that Boston University advertising professor Tobe Berkovitz, said, "political ads essentially have two purposes: to rev up the base and to persuade independents." The professor offers his opinion on the political effectiveness of the ad: “The conservative base is already super revved up. And independents don’t care if Barack Obama is arrogant. They care if Barack Obama has or has not improved the economy. These are nice little pieces of candy for the media, but it is not going to get anyone to change his or her mind one way of another.”
Red Alert Politics
reports that the ad is part of a series of parody-style videos that will be featured on the new anti-Obama election 2012 website.
