GOP Congressman Attacks Obama’s Budget Using ‘The Most Interesting Man In The World’ [VIDEO]

Republican Georgia Congressman Doug Collins was presumably making overtures to the young vote when he took to the floor of the House of Representatives Thursday morning with a poster featuring Dos Equis spokesman, “The Most Interesting Man in the World.”

The poster is a variation on an Internet meme based of of a series of Dos Equis ads which always end with the suave man saying that he does not always drink beer, “but when I do, I drink Dos Equis.” The meme peeked in popularity around 2012 and 2013, before waning in 2014.

“I don’t always submit the Federal budget on time,” the poster read, “but when I do… I MAKE SURE IT HAS A HALF-A-TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT.”

WATCH:

Bizarrely, despite the prop, Collins did not refer to the poster or the meme throughout his speech attacking President Barack Obama’s proposed budget. “How many folks around the dinner table start their conversation, ‘You know what, I want to start the year broke, and I want to end broke’?” Collins asks at one point.
