Description of the Project
Beer advertisers often assume a fairly low degree of intelligence, but our research revealed that our target actually had a brain and was rather irked by the clichés and sophomoric humor employed by the category. They felt misrepresented, misunderstood. They wanted to be seen as interesting. Inspired by this insight, we created the Most Interesting Man in the World (MIM.) Instead of soothing drinkers with generic cues of masculinity, we used the sophisticated figure of the MIM, dashingly attired, and situated in exotic and intriguing locales, to imply that all drinkers could and should be living a more interesting life.
