Yes, This Latest ‘Most Interesting Man’ Spot Reminds Us of ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ For Some Reason

Ok, well maybe just slightly, but here we have our Most Interesting Man talking masquerade parties in the latest Dos Equis spot from Havas and prodco Rooster. There’s no self-promoting VO this time around on why he’s the greatest, most invincible person in the world, just a one-on-one narrative that’s slightly randy. But yeah, we’re still envious. Credits after the jump.

Topps, Rooster Wax Nostalgic with Web Series for Garbage Pail Kids MiniKins

Rooster New York, fresh off of teaching you how to take a punch (and all their skateboard projects), have unleashed a suitably goofy trailer for their new web series promoting Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids MiniKins.

For those too young to remember, Garbage Pail Kids was a popular trading card series released in 1985, parodying the then even-more-popular Cabbage Patch Kids dolls phenomenon. Topps brought the Garbage Pail Kids back in 2012 with an all-new series. Now they’re expanding the Garbage Pail Kids into 1” MiniKins figures.

Rooster’s trailer is in the fake-outtake style, with Garbage Pail Kid Adam Bomb struggling to get through his lines, among other things. If you grew up with Garbage Pail Kids, it will probably be a welcome blast of nostalgia. If not, it should still ooze a kind of fun 80s cheese that’s hard not to appreciate. Everyone is still obsessed with the 80s, right? Isn’t that why we’re here talking about Garbage Pail Kids?

Anyway, the Garbage Pail Kids MiniKins will launch mid-October and Rooster’s web series will air at the MiniKins official YouTube page. Credits after the jump. Read more
