The Most Interesting Man In The World

Iron Will over at joecustoms.com hosted an incredibly fun customizing contest called "Mascot Madness." It's actually the second time he's run it and there were some REALLY amazing entries, all based on incorporating various product/license/franchise mascots into the GI Joe mythos. My "Most Interesting Man In The World" managed to snag a 3rd place tie (shared with an amazing robotic Kool-Aid Man). Big thanks to Iron Will for running such a fun contest, and especially for the extremely generous prizes. Be sure to head over to the forums there to get info on the next round!

Here's some of the flavor text I submitted with my custom to fit the Dos Equis mascot into the Joe-verse.:

"He'll fight for freedom where ever there's trouble...
...and where everything's okay.

Any firearms he carries on assignment are unloaded...
...he just likes the way they look with his suit.

His file card lists his primary military specialty
...as everything.

He is an honorary member of the Dreadnoks...
...despite having put them all in prison at least once.

He thought Snake-Eyes' real name was actually "Classified"...
...so the commando had his name legally changed to that out of respect.

He has defeated an entire platoon of COBRA soldiers...
...just by sighing and telling them "I expected better of you."

He is immune to the effects of Compound Z...
...but not to the effects of a beautiful sunset.

He is...
...the Most Interesting Man in the World."
