We have all seen the commercial. "I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis." He's called the most interesting man in the world. But, beyond the LCD panels in your television, and the din of late night TV, the man is just an actor
in an especially resonant role, in a very successful advertising series, mythologized with strange deeds and characteristics. His blood smells of cologne, and he despises gyms. After all, running in place will never get you the same results as running from a lion.
It is all hilarious nonsense.
Meanwhile, in the real world, Dhani Jones may just be
the most interesting man in the world. Like the Dos Equis
demigod, Dhani spends much of his time defying conventions and curating his own personal mythology. He has conducted orchestras, played a decade at middle linebacker in the NFL, scrimmaged with baby elephants, swam with sharks in Australia, flown a Cessna
through a thunderstorm, and even carried a suffering man on his shoulder through the Himalayas
to safety at a mountain camp.
He has also played a washboard bass on a corner in New York city for tips, and was once arrested for literally dancing too much
in the streets of Miami. For Dhani, life is a journey, an extremely interesting one.
