As you can see, I’m still having fun watching Dos Equis adverts on YouTube. I like the music, the actor who plays the “most interesting” man, the funny scenes in the ads and the deep voice overs.
They also remind me of some of my friends who also like doing ‘interesting’ things. One of my friends in Japan is always doing interesting activities, and thanks to her Facebook status updates, the rest of her friends can see what she has been up to.
It’s the same here in London. One of my friends is always doing interesting things. When I say ‘interesting’, I’m talking about fun activities which most people wouldn’t normally do.
A couple of months ago, my friend went to a silent disco event. It’s like going to a night club, but you have to listen to the music through wireless headphones. Some of the people in the club will be listening to one kind of music, while the rest are listening to another kind of music. Here’s a YouTube clip showing a silent disco event in Reading.
Another friend of mine went to a chess boxing event. The two opponents start off by playing a round of chess, and then they have a round of boxing. In total, they battle for 11 rounds, and you can win the match by either check-mating your opponent, or by knocking them out. This BBC World video explains it so much better.
I’ve always said that I want to do more interesting activities, and these “most interesting man” adverts have reminded me of that. I always plan to do things, but never seem to get round to doing them. From now on, I’m going to do one ‘interesting’ activity every two weeks. I will use newspapers (like The Metro and The Evening Standard), magazines (like Timeout) and websites (like View London) to search for cool events that are taking place in the UK. Wish me luck! 🙂
