CAO Mission Escaparate Movie

I know, I know, it’s been a while. The standard disclaimers apply regarding why the blog has been so quiet lately. Instead of me spinning a long yarn about all the reasons, I’ll leave it to you to select the excuses you like the most. Feel free to mix and match.

Reasons Brian Hasn’t Written A Post Lately

  • He’s been legally dead for tax reasons.
  • He won the lottery and moved to Peru.
  • Cigar Jack killed him to eliminate the cigar review competition.
  • He got trapped in a Joe Drinker cartoon ala A-Ha’s Take On Me music video.
  • He’s trapped under a fallen humidor and can’t reach the keyboard.
  • He’s busy planting evidence in McLovin‘s living room.

And once you’re done considering all the bad things that may explain my absence, take a few minutes to check out this funny new video from CAO. You may not find out much about the Escaparate, but you will see Jon Huber (CAO’s Director of Lifestyle Marketing) wield a disembodied hand to disable a security system. And really, isn’t that enough? Enjoy!

CAO Mission Escaparate Part 2

And check back again, I’ll be reviewing a cigar or two compliments of the guys at the local Tinderbox and Tex Cigars! (Really, I haven’t forgotten- thanks again guys!)

    Chuckling about you being legally dead for tax reasons… I can imagine that faking light aircraft crash takes planning!

    Now I’ve got that stupid A-Ha song stuck in my head. I hate you.

    I figured you were this guy trolling for women on Craig’s list.

    Oh, man. I could have done without hearing that song and seeing that video for sure.

    Yes babychaos,
    It’s incredibly involved to to fake those. I’m glad you appreciate that!

    All I can say, cigarsmokingman is: Bwah ha ha ha! My evil plans have come to fruition. (I seriously need to have more lofty plans.)

    CJ- Oh is that still up there? I always fail the list at “Run Around”.

    Yeah, but it’s entertaining marketing!

    Aw, c’mon JD,
    You know you’ve been jonesin’ for A-Ha.

    Gee, for a minute I thought I was watching old Miami Vice reruns.

    Sorry, Tool! (I mean Huber!!! šŸ™‚ )

    Looked like Fun!
