Hillary Clinton Is a Real 'Most Interesting Man,' According to James Franco

New Pro-Clinton Ad Riffs Off Dos Equis Famous Campaign

Editor's Pick

Dos Equis just debuted its new "Most Interesting Man," but James Franco offers up perhaps a more interesting candidate for the job: Hillary Clinton.

A new ad supporting the Democratic presidential candidate features scenes of Clinton on the job -- color-corrected to resemble the grainy film quality of the Dos Equis ads.

The actor then rattles off -- intoning Dos Equis' quiet, bombastic style -- a list of Clinton's extreme attributes:

"The smartest guy in the room, is always her. After she opens a can of whoop-ass, she always recycles the can. Her secret service code name is Hermione, because she is a f*ckin' wizard. She -- is the most interesting woman in the world."

It's then that the camera cuts to reveal the actor, arm slung over Clinton -- actually, her cutout doppelganger. "I don't always endorse candidates, but when I do, they're extraordinary," he says. Vote wisely, my friends."

It's funny, fresh take on the endorsement ad, courtesy of the Women Vote Project. It's also a pretty cool present for Secretary Clinton on her birthday.
