Dos Equis: My Match +1
Summer 2009 is full of live, international soccer matches in the United States. With the Gold Cup and the World Football Challenge are playing in cities across the nations, fans have the opportunity to witness the ball wizardry of Ronaldinho and Drogba. These are experiences that this “beautiful game” fanatic must share with a special someone.
Who could possibly fill the shoes of being my match +1?
The question had me stumped until I heard an unknown yet strikingly familiar voice. Over the background noise of a festive party, the person was advising all who would listen that “the afterparty is the one that you want attend and one should never use pickup lines”. I raised my head from my book to look into the eyes of “The Most Interesting Man in the World”.
Dos Equis claims that this man lives vicariously through himself and has a reputation that is expanding faster than the universe. Who else would choose to have an awkward moment just to see how it feels?
I was sold.
Can you imagine the pre-game analysis that he has in store for me? Are we not guaranteed to be swept off to a clandestine location to mingle with the football elite after the match? I know that I have struck a goldmine with my match +1. Can you say the same?
