Those clever folks over at MONEYOUTVOTERSIN have launched a crowd funding effort behind this spin on the clever Dos Equis beer “Stay Thirsty” campaign of a few years back.

You know the great original spots – the chiseled old guy – called the “most interesting man in the world” – advises you to “stay thirsty my friends” while he’s surrounded by adoring models.

In this adoption the lead character is a Dark Money maven imploring listeners not to support the campaign finance reform movement. As obviously designed by the ad makers – it isn’t working. The INDIGOGO supporting the spot is already more than half way to its goal.

For those of you who might have missed it, here’s the original inspiration.
