    .....from the Dos Equis commercials is Jonathan Goldsmith, a guy who grew up in a Jewish home in the Bronx, has appeared in 350 TV roles, and lives on a boat near Los Angeles. More interesting than I realized.

    He is real good friends with Lorenzo Lamas, who was supposed to be the most interesting man in the world (they thought up the concept together), but it worked way better the way you see it now.

    It's a fascinating reminder of how susceptible we are to good marketing.

    Goldsmith is a pretty ordinary guy with ordinary acting ability and, until these ads, an ordinary acting career.

    But, alas, he was probably cheaper than Harrison Ford or one of the guys who played James Bond!
