This Monday, March 23, 2015 photo by Washington State Patrol Trooper Tony Brock shows a cardboard cutout of the "The Most Interesting Man In The World," otherwise known as actor Jonathan Goldsmith, of Dos Equis beer TV commercial fame, strapped to the passenter seat of a driver who tried to use the image to qualify to drive the carpool lane on Interstate 5 near Fife, Wash. The trooper says it's by far the best carpool scam he's seen, but it didn't work. Both were chuckling as the driver, whose name wasn't released, said "He's my best friend." The Most Interesting Man was not confiscated, but the driver was told not to use him again. The State Patrol tweeted the photo, saying: "I don't always violate the HOV lane law ... but when I do, I get a $124 ticket." (AP Photo/Washington State Patrol, Trooper Tony Brock)

According to Fox News, a Washington State Patrol trooper spotted a driver with an “interesting” passenger drive by him in the carpool lane. After he stopped the car, he saw that the passenger was really a cardboard cutout of Jonathon Goldsmith, the actor who plays “The Most Interesting Man in the World” in Dos Equis beer ads.

What did the driver have to say about his passenger? “He’s my best friend.”

The driver and the trooper shared a good laugh about the whole thing and the driver was allowed to keep his cardboard pal. However, he was instructed to not use him again and was issued a ticket.

Following the stop the trooper tweeted, “I don’t always violate the HOV lane law … but when I do, I get a $124 ticket.”
