The Most Interesting Man In The World is Dancing in Greece

video

You know that guy from the Dos Equis beer commercial — "The Most Interesting Man in the World"? 

Well I found him, dancing at a village festival on the legendary island of Ithaka, and when he noticed me filming, he showed off even more...

ahhhh the Greeks and their kefi

(kefi = joy, desire, passion....)

  1. Ah, delightful! White hair and beard like mine; who could resist that? Plus a dance, and a bit of Metaxa, and all manner of other wonderful things.

    May you continue enjoying yourself in Ithaka, Amanda!

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    1. The guy in this video is Greek - but he's a dead ringer for the guy in the commercial who is actually an American actor named Jonathan Goldsmith.

  4. i don't know the commercial. tv? i can't seem to watch much television any more. i become too quickly disheartened by what they want to spoon feed us. but i'll keep my eye out in my quick bits of tv consumption:) he does seem to be so full of life.

    but this reminds me of a documentary i watched recently on the nature of architecture in urban spaces. how beautifully people are together here celebrating, if not a specific holiday, then the magnificent event of being alive:)

    i recommend the documentary which can be seen, at least on netflix, The Human Scale, the architecture of Jan Gehl which puts people first, not the automobile. very interesting. and heartening too, that spaces such as this community space can invite people into celebration like this. if we take note of our real needs, architecture and city planning can return our humanity to us.

    1. Erin,

      I had never thought about the Greek plateia (town square) as urban architecture, but in a country where so much life is lived outside, it's absolutely true. The documentary sounds fascinating and I will add it to my Netflix queue. Anything that returns our humanity to us is worthy of our attention.

  8. How delightful. It sounds like he's a typical Mediterranean man if he saw you filming him and showed off even more. Maybe that's why I ended up marrying an American :)
