Blake Anderson stars in an '80s parody for Dos Equis' Cinco de Mayo campaign

Dos Equis has teamed up with Funny or Die this year to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, with a couple of humorous videos starring actor Blake Anderson.

Created by Droga5, the films promote the brand's limited edition "Cinco Equis" cans for Cinco de Mayo--the joke being that it's basically the same Dos Equis beer with three more Xs on each can. The films are done in an '80s parody style with a synthed-up jingle (think Coke ads of that era) with people dancing on beaches, aviator shades and more, and Anderson inserting some foul-mouthed injections into the sunkissed fun.

While it's reasonably funny, we still miss the old Dos Equis advertising like its clever Dos de Mayo campaign-- even if Astral Tequila is doing its best to keep that going.
