The real-life version of the most interesting man in the world
The Dos Equis beverage company has a campaign called “The Most Interesting Man in the World.” In the series of commercials this fictional man is said to have done everything from “giving his father the talk” to being “both left-handed and right-handed.”
Mel Allen could very well be who that character is based on. Allen is a Korean War era veteran who took part in “Operation Totem Pole,” an 872-mile walk through Alaska in 1952 and a trip to his basement almost feels like a visit to a hall of fame. The shelves have trophies from his competitive pistol shooting and tractor pulling days.
An old news clip, written by Caroyln Dahiin, should give you an ideal about the talent that Allen possessed in marksmanship.
