By now you've hopefully seen the countless commercials for Dos Equis beer touting The Most Interesting Man in the World as one of its loyal customers. Referring to the commercial's star Jonathan Goldstein as the man who can do it all, "Frontline" narrator Will Lyman offers gems like calling him the only man who has aced a Rorschach test. Now the suave swordsman of a cat Puss in Boots gets the same treatment as The Most Interesting Cat in the World, a feline whose hairballs are made from fine Italian wool. It's not exactly as clever as the commercials it's trying to emulate but it's a fun video to check out below.
Here's the Puss in Boots viral spot for The Most Interesting Cat in the World (via BuzzFeed):
A story about the dramatic events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and company.
Puss in Boots is directed by animator Chris Miller, who started as a story artist and directed Shrek the Third (not fourth) a few years back. The screenplay was co-written by Brian Lynch (Hop), David H. Steinberg (The Babysitter), Tom Wheeler ("The Cape") and Jon Zack (Shrek the Third). This is a new spin-off of the Puss in Boots character from the Shrek franchise created at DreamWorks Animation. Paramount is bringing Puss in Boots to theaters in 3D everywhere starting on November 4th this fall. Anyone excited for this already?
